Rosh Chodesh Sivan 216

General letter - Rosh Chodesh Sivan 5749; All aspects of the days of preparation to Matan Torah are remembered and celebrated (“nizkarim vena’asim”) each year and with renewed force.

Yemei Hagbalah 224

The aspect of the “Yemei Hagbalah” (the “three days of limitation", the name given to the three days immediately preceding the festival of Shavuot) as a preparation to Matan Torah is – that the purpose of the intent is not “Kelos Hanefesh” (expiry of the soul out of spiritual rapture) but rather the Avodah of souls in bodies. This aspect is in the Avodah of the preparation to Matan Torah each and every year. Especially in the calendar year when Rosh Chodesh Sivan occurs on the first day of the week. The virtue of the second day of the Yemei Hagbalah and the connection to the daily Tehillim portion


Chag HaShavuot 231

Our custom not to recite “Akdamot”

The connection of Matan Torah with the Schechitah profession – the reason for eating dairy products

The allusion in the Torah to “nuclear science” (מדע גרעיני) – the revelation of the hidden powers in matter, until the first source which is the word of G-d. There must be the ruling of form over matter

Torah brings healing to the world

Explanation of Rambam (in the preface to Sefer HaYad) “All the Mitzvot given . . were all given together with their explanations, as it states, "And I will give you the tablets of stone and the Mitzvah etc." Seemingly, in Torat Kohanim, this is derived from another verse

All Yisroel is like one body. Through strengthening one limb it adds to the strength of the others

Among the foundations of Chabad is not to identify with a political party (להזדהות עם מפלגה). The true aspect of “freedom” is through the “engraving on the Luchot”

Speech to youth regarding the necessity of “Return O Yisroel . . and I will return to you," said the L-rd of Hosts”

Letter of encouragement to a woman who is involved in communal affairs (osek b'tzarchei tzibbur) to use her standing and powers to awaken the youth in the Holy Land to return to G-d and His Torah. Working to achieve inner Aliyah/ascent (תעמולה לעלי' פנימית)

The virtue of “communal life/Kibbutz” (חיי קבוצה) in a manner that precludes undesirable competition yet does not nullify the virtue of the individual. This aspect is different for those who founded the Kibbutz from those that were born into it. The connection to Rosh Hashanah where man was created as an individual.

Doubts in matters of science (theorems are probable but not certain) are not like differing opinions in Torah 255

The claim, “Shall the Judge of all the earth not do justice?” in connection with the Holocaust etc.; It is a clear proof from the Holocaust that it is impossible, without Torah, to rely on the moral philosophy and feelings of man.

Claims regarding the “Holocaust”

The question of a why bad things happen to good people (צדיק ורע לו) answered according to faith in the Resurrection of the Dead (בתחיית המתים)

Utilizing one’s powers to facilitate G-d’s mission

The mission of spreading Judaism, in one’s area and surroundings is incumbent upon everyone

Instead of searching for challenge by attending university, which has “obstacles” one must withstand the challenges in the seminar itself

From “tests” in course study one must learn that each person must test himself in the aspects of Avodat HaShem 289

In all places of doubt – whoever increases in the aspects of the fear of Heaven is praiseworthy

It is impossible that one who is engaged in the education of Jewish children, should feel alone

Non-kosher intermediaries should not be utilized for the purpose of a Mitzvah. For it is a “Mitzvah that comes through sin”. However, one who foregoes his personal comfort to influence another, is better than personal study.

All merit bears fruit

Instead of thinking about oneself, one must think of the other; manners of contemplation in prayer; one who acts with another helps regarding himself
