Wednesday, 12th of Shevat, 5777

Sefirot Combination (Cycles of Seven Weeks):

1st day of Week 20 and the 36th day of the cycle of Tiferet (Balance/Beauty), Chesed shebeYesod shebeTiferet, Kindness within Foundation within Balance/Beauty.

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

2nd day of the 7th cycle. Beit within Mem and Nun:

Psalm 145:

בְּכָל יוֹם אֲבָרֲכֶךָּ וַאֲהַלְלָה שִׁמְךָ לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד:

Every day I shall bless You, and I shall praise Your name forever and ever.

Psalm 119:

בְּפִקּוּדֶיךָ אָשִׂיחָה וְאַבִּיטָה אֹרְחֹתֶיךָ:

Concerning Your precepts I shall converse, and I shall look at Your ways.


"Then Moses and the children of Israel sang this song to the Lord, and they spoke, saying, I will sing to the Lord, for very exalted is He; a horse and its rider He cast into the sea."


1. For the Conductor, a song, a psalm. Raise your voices in jubilation to God, all the earth!2. Sing the glory of His Name; make glorious His praise.3. Say to God, "How awesome are Your deeds!" Because of Your great strength, Your enemies will [admit] their treachery to You.4. All the earth will bow to You, and sing to You; they will sing praise to Your Name forever!5. Go and see the works of God, awesome in His deeds toward mankind.6. He turned the sea into dry land, and they passed through the river on foot; we rejoiced in Him there.


Now, since the Divine Will, which is in perfect unity with G‑d Himself, stands completely revealed in the divine soul and in its inner garments — i.e., its thought and speech — while a person occupies himself with words of Torah, and there is nothing obscuring the Divine Will at that time, for when one studies Torah, the Divine Will and wisdom contained in it come into full expression in one’s soul and its faculties of thought and speech, it follows that at that time, the soul and these garments of thought and speech are also truly united with G‑d, with a unity comparable to that of G‑d’s speech and thought with His essence and being as explained above. For nothing is separate from G‑d, except insofar as His Countenance is concealed

3) Not to cause discomfort through words;
4) Not to cheat a convert financially;
5) Not to cause a convert discomfort through words.

Hayom Yom:

Intellect and excitement are two separate worlds. Intellect - a world cold and settled; excitement - a world seething and impetuous. Man's avoda is to combine them, unite them. The impetuousness then becomes transformed into a longing, and the intellect into the guide in a life of avoda and action.

Daf Yomi:

שלשה לא שלט בהן יצר הרע אלו הן אברהם יצחק ויעקב דכתיב בהו בכל מכל כל ויש אומרים אף דוד דכתיב (תהלים קט, כב) ולבי חלל בקרבי ואידך צעריה הוא דקא מדכר
There were three people over whom the evil inclination had no sway. They are: Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, as it is written with regard to them,respectively: “With everything,” “from everything,” “everything.”
