Thursday, 10th of Nissan

Sefirot Combination (Cycles of Seven Weeks):

2nd day of Week 28 (the "Pig") and the 44th day (the "Mouse") of the 4th cycle ("Netzach"), Gevurah shebeMalchut shebeNetzach, Might/Discipline within Kingship within Victory/Endurance.

Comments/Perspectives: It's interesting to note that in all of Perek Shirah there are only two animals that come in a pair: the Cat and the Mouse, which cover the 9 Days of Av. The previous two, the Fox and the Hound also appear to be pair, but that connection is not explicit. These are the animals that cover the Three Weeks of Mourning, which is the basis for the Cycles of 22 days (and the pairs in each cycle) below.

Alef-Bet/Psalms (Cycles of 22 days):

15th day of the 9th cycle ("Thick and Light Clouds"), Samech within the cycle of Peh and Tzadik (Samech-Peh / Peh-Samech). 

Comments/Perspectives:  Peh and Samech are the firtst two letters of "Pessach,"


The Lord has trampled all my mighty men in my midst, He summoned an assembly against me to crush my young men; the Lord has trodden as in a wine press the virgin daughter of Judah.

סִלָּה כָל אַבִּירַי | אֲדֹנָי בְּקִרְבִּי קָרָא עָלַי מוֹעֵד לִשְׁבֹּר בַּחוּרָי גַּת דָּרַךְ אֲדֹנָי לִבְתוּלַת בַּת יְהוּדָה:

Hayom Yom

On the subject of the campaign to popularize the observance of taharat hamishpacha in your community, ponder this deeply: Let us imagine that G‑d were to give you the opportunity to save a Jewish community from extinction (G‑d forbid), you would certainly be willing to risk your life for this and you would thank and praise Him for His great kindness in offering you an opportunity of such enormous merit. The same then holds true to an even greater degree with regard to the campaign for taharat hamishpacha; it is an endeavor which literally saves lives.
