Monday, 9th of Tammuz

Hayom Yom

The greatest guaranteed assurance (of Divine assistance) for all Jewish parents in need of special help and deliverance1 for their children is through their support of those who study Torah.

1. From On High.

Sefirot Combination (Cycles of Seven Weeks):

6th day of Week 40 (the "Wolf") and the 34th day (the "Ox") of the 6th cycle ("Yesod"), Yesod shebeHod shebeYesod, Foundation within Glory/Acknowledgement within Foundation.

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

15th day of the 13th cycle ("Fig and Pomegranite Trees"), Samech within the cycle of Mem Sofit  


45. You make us as scum and refuse among the peoples. מה סְחִי וּמָאוֹס תְּשִׂימֵנוּ בְּקֶרֶב הָעַמִּים:

scum and refuse: That is נִיעַ in the language of the Mishnah (B. K. 3b), כִּיחו ֹוְנִיעוֹ, his phlegm and his mucus, which is drawn out from the lungs and emitted from the throat.
You make us: This is in the present tense.

Song of Songs:

13. Let us arise early to the vineyards; let us see whether the vine has blossomed, the tiny grapes have developed, the pomegranates have lost their flowers; there I will give you my love.

יג נַשְׁכִּימָה לַכְּרָמִים נִרְאֶה אִם פָּרְחָה הַגֶּפֶן פִּתַּח הַסְּמָדַר הֵנֵצוּ הָרִמּוֹנִים שָׁם אֶתֵּן אֶת דֹּדַי לָךְ:

Let us arise early to the vineyards: These are the synagogues and the study halls. 
let us see whether the vine has blossomed: These are the students of the Torah.
 the tiny grapes have developed: When the blossom falls off and the grapes are discernible, that is the development of the סְמָדַר, and he compares the students of the Mishnah to them, because they provide pleasure by teaching Torah.
the pomegranates have lost their flowers: when they become ripe, and the flower around them falls off. הֵנֵצוּ means its flower (נִצוּ) , and he compares the Talmud students to them, who possess full wisdom and are fit to teach. 
there I will give you my love: There I will show You my glory and the glory of my sons and daughters.
