The Power of Repentance

Rashi explains: When G-d began the Flood, He first made it rain mercifully – as regular rain – so that if the generation would repent, the falling water would become normal, seasonal rain.

When they still did not repent, the rain became a flood. Although G -d had warned the people about the impending Flood 120 years earlier, and seeing Noah build the ark this entire period was a constant reminder of G-d’s warning, the people still did not repent during that entire span of time.

Even after watching Noah enter the ark and witnessing the accompanying miracles, they still did not repent. And yet, if they had repented at this point – even after the rain started – not only would they have been spared the Flood, they would have been showered with rains of blessing.

This demonstrates the incredible power of repentance, which has the power to transform all misfortune into good, even in a split second.

The Light Will Break Through

G-d said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. Genesis 1:3

G-d seeks “partners” in His ongoing re-creation of the world. Thus, whenever we take upon ourselves to begin some project intended to promote holiness, goodness, and Divine consciousness in the world, we should remember that we are G-d’s emissaries in this endeavor, acting on His behalf.

This being the case, our own “act of creation” must take its cue from G-d’s creation of the world. Just as the initial state of reality seemed antithetical to Divine consciousness – void, chaotic, and dark – so will there be challenges and obstacles to our own creative projects.

Nonetheless, just as light broke through and illuminated the world on the first day of creation, paving the way for the rest of the creative process to unfold, so too, when we resolve to see our endeavors through to fruition, G-d will turn the tables, and light and order will displace chaos and darkness.

What is Chai Elul?
"Chai Elul" — the 18th day of the Hebrew month of Elul — is a most significant date on the Chassidic calendar. The founder of Chassidism, Rabbi Israel Baal Shem Tov, was born on this date, in 1698. It is also the day, 36 years later, on which the Baal Shem Tov began to publicly disseminate his teachings.
Elul 18 is also the birthday — in 1745 — of Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi, who established the "Chabad" branch of Chassidism, which emphasizes in-depth study and intense contemplation as the key to vitalizing the entire person, from sublime mind to practical deed.

The Joy in Self-Discipline 

Special communal offerings were sacrificed every day of the seven day holiday of Sukkot. A special water-libation accompanied the morning daily offering on these seven days.

The difference between wine and water is that whereas the wine has a distinct flavor and acts as a stimulant, water is bland.

Accordingly, wine corresponds to our understanding of our Divine mission – the intellectual and emotional motivation that spurs us to pray, study the Torah, or perform G-d’s commandments with joy and enthusiasm.

Water, in contrast, corresponds to raw discipline, the devotion to G-d that we muster in order to persevere when intellectual or emotional motivation fails us, or to persist beyond the extent to which they drive us.

Nevertheless, we are told that the joy that accompanied the ceremony of drawing the water for the Sukkot water-libation exceeded that of all other celebrations. The unbounded joy that accompanied the water-libation reflected the unbounded nature of raw discipline.

Our intellect and emotions are limited by our mental acuity and emotional sensitivity. Discipline, in contrast, is unlimited; our devotion to G-d is rooted in the essential connection between Him and our Divine souls, and it is therefore not subject to any limitations.

Our renewed realization of this unassailable connection to G-d is what powers the unparalleled outpouring of joy accompanying the water libation.

When I proclaim the Name of G-d,
give greatness to our G-d.
Deuteronomy 32:3 

One meaning of “giving greatness to G-d” is enabling G-d, so to speak, to fulfill His desire in creating the world. G-d purposely left the world unfinished when He created it, intending for us to perfect it. Thus, G-d’s plan cannot be completed without us.

The way we help G-d fulfill His desire for the world is by living our lives in accordance with His teachings.

Specifically, by constantly probing the depths of the Torah for new insights that can transform our lives and the lives of others, and by observing G-d’s commandments with renewed inspiration, we elicit new levels of Divine consciousness into reality.

We thereby gradually and persistently help the world fulfill its purpose, transforming it into G-d’s ultimate home.

King of Yourself

"When all Israel comes to appear before G-d, in the place He will choose, you must read this Torah before all Israel so they hear." Deuteronomy 31:11

Moses conveyed G-d's command to the people that they assemble once every seven years, during the festival of Sukot, in order to hear their king read specific passages from the Torah. Although they were commanded to study the Torah in any case, this ceremony was designed to instill renewed commitment to G-d's covenant with them.

We are all required to appoint a metaphorical “king” over ourselves, i.e., a spiritual counselor responsible for ensuring that we stay firmly on the path of spiritual growth.

This king’s primary responsibility is to “read to us” – i.e., inculcate us with – the same passages from the Torah that the real king reads to the people at the septennial assembly.

The first passage that the king reads (Deuteronomy 6:4-9) focuses on accepting “the yoke of the kingdom of heaven,” i.e., submitting to G-d’s authority. The second passage (Deuteronomy 11:13-21) teaches us that material success is dependent upon heeding G-d’s commands.

Keeping these two lessons in the forefront of our consciousness is the key to continued spiritual growth.

The Return of the Righteous

"When you obey G-d, your G-d, safeguarding His commandments and His rules written in this Torah scroll, and when you return to G-d, your G-d, with all your heart and soul."

Deuteronomy 30:10
“Returning to G-d” throughout our lives does not only mean repenting for past misdeeds. Even if we were to succeed completely in erasing all the negative effects of our past, maintaining constant

Divine consciousness from that point on, we would still need to “return to G-d.” Since we exist in physical bodies, we are bound by the conceptual limitations of time and space. We conceive of everything we think of in terms of the categories familiar to us, and thus, it is our ongoing challenge to rise above these categories when we think about G-d and attempt to enhance our relationship with Him.

Our awareness of this inherent challenge, coupled with our yearning to unite with G-d, inspires us first of all to study the Torah and fulfill its commandments as much as we can, since these are the bridges that enable us to cross the divide between our finite lives and G-d’s infinity. And secondly, this awareness inspires us to do all we can to hasten the ultimate Redemption, when “the world will be filled with the knowledge of G-d as water covers the seabed.

The Day of Renewal

"Moses and the Levitic priests spoke to all Israel, saying, “Pay attention and listen, Israel! Today you have become a people to G-d, your G-d.” Deuteronomy 27:9

This verse teaches us that in order to be G-d’s people – connected to G-d – we must realize that every day G-d forges His covenant with us anew.

In particular, however, it is on Rosh Hashanah, the first day of the Jewish year, that G-d renews His covenant with us. Rosh Hashanah is the anniversary of the creation of Adam and Eve, the first human beings, and on it we also celebrate the creation of the
world in general. Inasmuch as both humanity and the world at large are being re-created on this day, it is an opportunity both to remake ourselves as human beings and to improve our influence on the world.

Rosh Hashanah is therefore our annual opportunity to make a new covenant with G-d, to rededicate ourselves to our Divine mission to transform the world into His home. We begin this process with ourselves, resolving to live our lives in a more G-dly, spiritually refined manner, bringing Divine consciousness into the minutest details of our daily conduct.

Partnering with G-d

"If you enter your neighbor’s vineyard, you may eat as many grapes as you desire, until you are sated, but you may not put any into your container."
Deuteronomy 23:25

We can conceive of ourselves in our “working” relationship with G-d as His servants, as His employees, or as His partners.

A servant’s master is obliged to feed, clothe, and house him. An employer provides more for his employee: he pays him (enabling him to provide for his own needs as he chooses), provides him with the means to do his job, and must even allow him (as this verse describes) to partake of the produce he is harvesting. A partner not only is provided by his partner with everything he needs to do his part and is paid for his work by the partnership, he also shares in the profits.

Thus, once we accept our role as G-d’s partners in transforming the world into His ultimate home, G-d not only provides for all our needs, rewards us for our efforts, and allows us to benefit from the world as we refine it – we will even share the “profits” of our work (the great Divine revelations of the Messianic future) with Him.

Preparing for Prophecy

"G-d, your G-d, will appoint a prophet for you from among you, from your brothers, like me. You must hearken to him." Deuteronomy 18:15

Formal prophecy – G-d’s direct communication with human beings – ceased with the final prophets, Zechariah, Haggai, and Malachi. Nonetheless, G-d has promised us that in the Messianic future, prophecy will not only return but be commonplace: “After this, I will pour out My spirit upon all flesh. Your sons and your daughters will prophesy, your elders will dream dreams; your youths will see visions.”

The gift of prophecy was and will be given to those who refine themselves spiritually, particularly through carefully observing the Torah’s commandments. Spiritual self-refinement both opens us up to Divine inspiration and enables us to focus on G-d with distractions. Thus, by enhancing our observance of G-d’s commandments and expanding our knowledge of His ways through the study of His Torah, particularly its inner dimension, we can prepare ourselves to receive the gift of prophecy in the Messianic future.

In today's Hayom Yom (courtesy of Kehot Publication Society) on the Chayenu app: A resident of Mezibuz had a quarrel with another. Once, while in the Baal Shem Tov's shul, he shouted that he would tear the other fellow to pieces like a fish. The Baal Shem Tov told his pupils to hold one another's hand, and to stand near him with their eyes closed. Then he placed his holy hands on the shoulders of the two disciples next to him. Suddenly the disciples began shouting in great terror: They had seen that fellow actually dismembering his disputant. This incident shows clearly that every potential has an effect - either in physical form or on a spiritual plane that can be perceived only with higher and more refined senses.
In today's Hayom Yom (courtesy of Kehot Publication Society) on the Chayenu app: When R. Moshe, son of the Alter Rebbe, was between eight and eleven years old, he was studying the passage in Gittin 67a lauding the virtues of the sages. There R. Shimon bar Yochai said, "Learn my midot." R. Moshe was in doubt about the meaning of that last word, since there is Rashi's interpretation, "my teachings," and the simple meaning, "traits of character." At that moment the Alter Rebbe came in and said, in the chant he habitually used: "The Torah given us is all fine character-traits. Even the punishments there, are in truth acts of kindness and goodness. The two interpretations are one, and interdependent. There can be no fine character-traits without Torah; there can be no Torah without fine character."
In today's Daily Tanya (courtesy of Kehot Publication Society) on the Chayenu app: The quality of mercy is a “beautiful” attribute to have. It allows you to give with discipline. Your kindness will be on display, while you temper it with the perfect amount of constraint.
In today's HaYom Yom (courtesy of Kehot Publication Society) on the Chayenu app: My grandfather said in reference to Hitbon'nut, the profoundly concentrated contemplation on a subject extremely difficult to comprehend: If the subject is of deep personal concern, the person will come to understand and comprehend it very well. The proof of this is in the Torah, in laws involving women, etc., and the ingenious arguments that they may put forth on their own behalf. These arguments are discussed by Tanaim, Amoraim and Gaonim, all exceptionally brilliant minds, and the Torah is the Torah of Truth. Yet this woman is far removed, intellectually, from being able to devise such (ingenious, brilliant) claims. But the truth is that when a subject is of deep concern to a person, even those of weak intellect will come up with profound concepts.
In today's HaYom Yom (courtesy of Kehot Publication Society) on the Chayenu app: The Mitteler Rebbe quoted the Alter Rebbe: "Ahavat Yisrael (love of one's fellow Jew) must possess one to the very core of the soul itself."
In today's HaYom Yom (courtesy of Kehot Publication Society) on the Chayenu app: The Alter Rebbe repeated what the Mezritcher Maggid said quoting the Baal Shem Tov: "Love your fellow like yourself" is an interpretation of and commentary on "Love Hashem your G-d." He who loves his fellow-Jew loves G-d, because the Jew has within himself a "part of G-d Above." Therefore, when one loves the Jew - i.e. his inner essence - one loves G-d.
In today's Hayom Yom (courtesy of Kehot Publication Society) on the Chayenu app: In Torah-study, the person is devoted to the subject that he wishes to understand and comes to understand. In davening, the devotion is directed to what surpasses understanding. In learning Torah, the Jew feels like a pupil with his master; in davening - like a child with his father.
THE TEMPLE OF EZEQUIEL CHAPTER 40. By Sonia Hidalgo Zurita. I have deciphered Ezekiel's prophecy about the future temple and put each verse on plans and images. I think it's about time we get busy understanding what Ezekiel's temple is like.
From today's Daily Tanya (courtesy of Kehot Publication Society) on the Chayenu app
In today's Hayom Yom (courtesy of Kehot Publication Society) on the Chayenu app: FROM A LETTER OF THE REBBE (R' Yosef Yitzchak): During the forthcoming two Days of Liberation, 12 & 13 Tammuz, Chassidim are to farbreng, for material and spiritual good and blessing, as instituted by our first father, the Alter Rebbe (may the memory of this holy tzadik be a blessing for life in the Hereafter; his soul rests in the hidden exalted heights; may his merit protect us). During this farbrengen, Chassidim are to talk to one another in a spirit of brotherhood about strengthening fixed times for Torah study. I send them my blessing that G-d favor them in body and spirit.
In today's HaYom Yom (courtesy of Kehot Publication Society) on the Chayenu app: One of the Alter Rebbe's great and very close chassidim had yechidus, in the course of which the Rebbe inquired after his situation. The chassid complained bitterly that his financial situation had utterly deteriorated. The Rebbe responded: You are needed to illuminate your environment with Torah and avoda of the heart - (davening). Livelihood and what you need - that, G-d must provide for you. You do what you must, and G-d will do what He must.
In today's HaYom Yom (courtesy of Kehot Publication Society) on the Chayenu app: The Tzemach Tzedek once told his son, my grandfather, an incident in his experience, and concluded: For helping someone in his livelihood, even to earn just 70 kopeks (a small, low-value Russian coin) on a calf, all the gates to the Heavenly Chambers are open for him. Years later my grandfather told this to my father and added: One should really know the route to the Heavenly Chambers, but actually it is not crucial. You only need the main thing - to help another wholeheartedly, with sensitivity, to take pleasure in doing a kindness to another.
In today's Daily Tanya (courtesy of Kehot Publication Society) on the Chayenu app: Time and space (i.e. universe) are justified (i.e. propelled into existence) by Malchus-Adnus (Sovereignty) as previously explained. But as Malchus exists within its own Source (Havayah), and united with it – its Source being ‘pure’ G-dliness (beyond time and space), it loses its separateness. Hence existence at this level is Yichuda Ila’a, ‘Higher-Level Unity’ with G-d. Do not let the facade of creation confuse you. Remember at all times that the world is really an expression of the infinite G-d. It might look otherwise, but it is all His oneness.
In today's Hayom Yom (courtesy of Kehot Publication Society) on the Chayenu app: The physical universe is a mixture. It is a meeting-place where G-d meets together (as it were) with man, the select of all creatures; yet it is also "Ginat Egoz" – "a garden of nuts" – the word "Egoz" having the numerical equivalent of "Cheit" – "sin." G-d gives man the capacity to choose freely, that man may choose for himself a path in life.
In today's Hayom Yom (courtesy of Kehot Publication Society) on the Chayenu app: The ascent of the soul occurs three times daily, during the three times of Davening. This is particularly true of the souls of Tzadikim, who "go from strength to strength." It is certain that at all times and in every sacred place they may be, they offer invocation and prayer on behalf of those who are bound to them and to their instructions, and who observe their instructions. They offer prayer in particular for their disciples and disciples' disciples, that G-d be their aid, materially and spiritually.
In today's Hayom Yom (courtesy of Kehot Publication Society) on the Chayenu app: At a Farbrengen during the days of Sefira (at some time in the years 5651-5653, 1891-1893) someone said to my father, "The Alter Rebbe's chassidim were always keeping count." My father took a great liking to the saying, and he commented: "That idea characterizes man's Avoda. The hours must be 'counted hours,' then the days will be 'counted days.' When a day passes one should know what he has accomplished and what remains yet to be done... In general, one should always see to it that tomorrow should be much better than today."
