Likutei Sichos vol. 32. Iyar classes

Iyar is an acronym for "Ani Hashem Rofecha" ("I am Hashem your Healer") from Shemos (Exodus) 15:26. The focus of this series is the special kind of healing that Hashem provides at this time of year. These lectures were given in 2004 at Machon Chana and are based on a Sicha from the Lubavitcher rebbe (Likutei Sichos vol. 32 p. 72). The text of the Sicha is presented, translated, and explained by Rabbi Paltiel who adds comments and stories that bring out the meaning of the Sicha and provide inspiration for our post-Pesach, early summer diets and other self improvement resolutions!thanks to a listener for suggesting that we put this Sicha on line.

When the Sun Comes Out in Iyar. Summary and conclusion. If you only have time for one or two classes you can listen to the first one in the series and this one- the conclusion.

Look Up for health. In Nissan we come out of the narrowness of Mitzrayim and all of our limitation. The next and final class explains how this character of Nissan affects the healing that takes place in Iyar.

What is the Difference Between our Avoda in Nissan and Iyar? The class begins with the question of what comes first: the spiritual level of healing or the physical level of healing? this installment contains an interesting discussion of the unbreakable connection between a jew and his/her Jewishness. Note: The Rema MiPanu referred to in this class is Rabbi Menachem Azaria de Fano, 1548-1620.

Nissan gives strength to Iyar. Iyar follows Nissan which is a month of miracles. The importance of the discussion of continuity now becomes clear. The miraculous nature of Nissan pours over into Iyar and results in a month of miraculous healing that is beyond nature.

Miracles beyond nature (2). Part two of the discussion of miracles.

Miracles beyond nature (1). Class five shifts the focus to another building block in the discussion of healing -miracles. What is common among the miracles in the Torah? The Rambam's view is discussed.

The months are distinct and a continuum. A story of the Rogatchaver gaon illustrates the theoretical discussion of time. the analysis of time moves on to the connection with the concept of healing. Each month is significant on it's own and in relation to it's place in the sequence of months.

Time is a thing. The series builds with a discussion of the concept of time.

Nedarim (vows) and Teshuva. The second class delves into the question of deep and complete healing in detail. Including an interesting discussion of Nedarim (vows) and their relationship to Teshuva and health. A practical note- be careful- although the positive role of vows is discussed, please do not get the impression that this class recommends making vows! Make sure to listen to the entire class.

Complete Healing.
