Tuesday, 26 Tevet 5777

Sefirot Combination:

Tuesday is the seventh day of Week 17 and the twenty-first day of the cycle of Tiferet (Balance/Beauty), Malchut shebeTiferet shebeTiferet, Kingship within Balance/Beauty within Balance/Beauty.


Tuesday is also the ninth day of the sixth 22-day cycle of the year, related to the letters Kaf and Lamed. The following excerpts from Chapters 112 and 119 of the Book of Psalms are connected to the ninth letter, the Tet:

Psalm 112:

Good is the man who is gracious and lends

Psalm 119:

Thick like fat is their heart, but I engage in Your Torah.
טוֹב אִישׁ חוֹנֵן וּמַלְוֶה

טָפַשׁ כַּחֵלֶב לִבָּם אֲנִי תּוֹרָתְךָ שִׁעֲשָׁעְתִּי:

Daily Tanya:

For the heart is also corporeal, like the other organs of the body which are the instruments of action.

The heart is, however, internal and is the organs‘ source of vitality.

Therefore, because the heart, in its corporeality, is close to the other organs, and also provides their vitality, it can clothe itself in their actions, to be their “wings”, elevating them.


110. The wicked laid a snare for me, yet I have not strayed from Your precepts.
111. I have taken Your testimonies as an eternal heritage, for they are the joy of my heart.
112. I have inclined my heart to perform Your statutes, forever, to the last.

Hayom Yom

In the b'racha V'lamalshinim (p. 55, "Let thee..." in English), pause slightly between ut'mageir ("crush") and v'tachnia ("and subdue"), in consonance with the kavana that t'akeir ut'shabeir ut'mageir ("uproot, break, crush") refer to the three kelipot that must be completely eradicated. V'tachnia ("subdue") refers to kelipat noga that must be subdued, but can be purified.
