Proverbs 31:

Her children rise and call her fortunate; [also] her husband, and praises her.

קָמוּ בָנֶיהָ וַיְאַשְּׁרוּהָ בַּעְלָהּ וַיְהַלְלָהּ:

Psalm 119:

From before, I knew from Your testimonies, for You established them to [the end of] the world.

קֶדֶם יָדַעְתִּי מֵעֵדֹתֶיךָ כִּי לְעוֹלָם יְסַדְתָּם:

Hayom Yom:

The term "chassid" is an ancient one that the Sages had even applied to Adam. It describes perfection and excellence in intellect or in emotive character-traits, or in both. However, in Chabad Chassidic doctrine the appellation "Chassid" refers to one who recognizes his own essence-character and his standing in the knowledge and study of Torah, as well as his situation in observing mitzvot. He knows what he lacks and he is concerned and takes pains to fill that void. He is diligent in obedience in the manner of "accepting the yoke."


The Tzemach Tzedek said at the conclusion of the preceding narrative (20 Adar II): "My grandfather, the Alter Rebbe, is the Moshe Rabeinu of Chassidus Chabad. Our sages say that the Torah was given to Moshe but he acted generously (sharing it with Israel). The G‑dly "constant fire" related to the teachings of Chabad Chassidus was given by the Maggid to my grandfather; my grandfather acted generously and gave it to anyone who occupies himself with the study of Chassidus. I am absolutely certain that whoever teaches another and arouses in him that G‑dly "constant fire" is assured of his reward, that this merit of his will never be extinguished.
