Hayom-Yom for 2, Adar I
|Hayom Yom was written by the Lubavitcher Rebbe in 5703 (1942-43).|
In this box we have listed the Torah Lessons for this year.
The Torah Lessons below in the text are as they were in the original edition.
Sunday 2 Adar I 5703 Torah Lessons
Chumash: T'ruma, First Parsha with Rashi.
Tanya: Ch. 27. Should the (p. 115)...positive precepts. (p. 117).
Rabeinu Haggadol  the Alter Rebbe, set forth a program for Chassidim of striving (Avoda) with the mind and seeking truth, to critically examine one's every move to be certain it conforms strictly with truth  and comes through Avoda, effort.
This Avoda does not imply - as some think, altogether erroneously - that one must pulverize mountains and shatter boulders, turn the world upside down. The absolute truth is that any Avoda, any act, whatever it may be, is perfectly satisfactory when performed with true Kavana, intent: A B'racha pronounced with Kavana; a word of Davening as it should be, with a prepared heart and an awareness of "before Whom you stand"; a passage in Chumash said with an awareness that it is the word of G-d; a verse of Tehillim; a beneficent trait of character expressed in befriending another with affection and love.
The truth of the matter is, that to achieve this calls for great and intense effort, meaning simply to study a great deal of Torah and to comprehend it - each according to his ability - and then G-d will help him be what truth demands.
Tuesday Adar Sheini 2 5703 Torah Lessons
Chumash: P'kudei, Shlishi with Rashi.
Tanya: And if G-d (p. 155)...will be explained later. (p. 155).
A B'racha must have a hold in something,  just as rain benefits only the plowed and sown field, and early and later heavy rains benefit the crops of field or vine. But a waste field, unplowed and unsown, will benefit from neither soft rain, nor the early or later heavy rains.
