01b. Hayom HaRas Olom (היום הרת עולם) 5713 – Class 2

Class Two. Rosh Hashana we reach Techillas Maasecha (and higher). This manifests in the idea of Is’hapcha that is higher than Is’kafia. The Rebbe explains two levels in Is’hapcha: A. Where the darkness is replaced by light, B. Where the darkness itself shines. This latter idea is the true uniqueness of Rosh Hashana.

01a. Hayom HaRas Olom (היום הרת עולם) 5713 – Class 1

Class One. Maamar Hayom Haras Olom 5713 part one. Maase is the end of lifnei haTzimtzum and Machshava means Atzilus. All year only Sof Maase [Kav] comes into Atzilus, on Rosh Hashana Techilas Maasecha [Ohr Lifnei HaTzimtzum that is the mekor for Olomos and higher] also comes down until Asiya. Machshava is Atzilus [explanation: Koach…

18b. Bisha’a Shehikdimu (בשעה שהקדימו) 5712 – Class 2

Bisha’a Shehikdimu 5712, Class Two.The first of three classes on יושר and עיגולים and עצמות.An introduction to all three is available here. The anomalies of this Ma’amar are observed a little bit.Specifically, this class is on יושר the idea of all levels being limited and the connection to (all the) other levels is measurable. He explains using the example of the various levels of כחות הנפש, like לבושים, and מדות, and שכל and כח המשכיל. He explains the proximity by pointing out two things:1) Each later level exists (noticeably) in the source before it manifests.2) And as it manifests, it…

15b. Livyason Zeh Yatzarta (לויתן זה יצרת) 5712 – Class 2

Point Two: There are Souls called fish which are the highest Tzadikim, and there are Neshamos compared to the שור הבר that go into the three (or four) classes of צדיקים בינונים and רשעים.The Neshamos called לויתן raise the rest up לעתיד לבוא. 2) This battle only happens after Moshiach comes because only a גילוי העצמות ממש achieves this and this is only לעתיד לבוא. The לויתן raises up the lower Neshamos (שור הבר) and in doing so experiences an עלי’ה Himself.

23a. Ani Lidodi (אני לדודי) 5712 – Class 1

Class One. This is the first of two classes on this classic Ma’amar, outlining the stages of the davening journey from submission and acceptance, to feeling, reason (of the animal and then divine Souls,) and total Bittul in the Amida.

22b. ViHikrisem Luchem Arim (וידבר גו’ והקריתם) 5712 – Class 2

Class Two. The second part of the Maamar addresses 1) how Klipa developed, being at first only a protector of the K’dusah not really opposing K’dusha until after the first sin. 2) Then Klipa and K’dusha were black and white, now there only shades of grey. 3) The Arei Miklat has to do with this inexactitude,…

15a. Livyason Zeh Yatzarta (לויתן זה יצרת) 5712 – Class 1

1) Point One: The day is divided into four. Only in the last quarter of the day, is Hashem enjoying (being “pleasured” by) what we do. This is the playing with Livyasan idea, that we are all the fish in the sea, one with Him, maximally serving Him

04a. Chayey Sara (חיי שרה) 5712 – Class One.

04a. Chayey Sara (חיי שרה) 5712, Class One. Chayey Sara, Chava, Noach, and Sara shared the Avoda of bringing Bittul into Murgash [as opposed to Adam and Avrohom whose task was in the realm of the Bilti Murgash].

06a. Vayeshev Yaakov (וישב יעקב) 5712 – Class One.

06a. Vayeshev Yaakov (וישב יעקב) 5712, Class One. Peace exists on two levels: 1) You fight and win resoundingly, 2) there is no fight in the first place, the enemy is automatically vanquished. In Vayeshev, Yaakov is aspiring to the higher peace but gets instead the lower one: In golus Mitzrayim he has tranquility.
