*00:00 – PARAGRAPH 17. CLIP for BeChukosai. הִתְוַדּ֤וּ אֶת־עֲו‍ֹנָם֙ וְאֶת־עֲוֹ֣ן אֲבֹתָ֔ם בְּמַֽעֲלָ֖ם אֲשֶׁ֣ר מָֽעֲלוּ־בִ֑י וְאַ֕ף אֲשֶׁר־הָֽלְכ֥וּ עִמִּ֖י בְּקֶֽרִי – “They will then confess their iniquity and the iniquity of their fathers their betrayal that they dealt Me, and that they also treated Me carelessly” (Vayikra 26:40 – BeChukosai). The tzaddikim of previous generations help the present generation of Am Yisrael in Tikkun HaBris – repairing sins with regard to Torah laws of marriage.

13:38 – PARAGRAPH 18. The waters of mikveh only purify if they are connected with the ground, not contained in any sort of vessel. וְר֣וּחַ אֱלֹהִ֔ים מְרַחֶ֖פֶת עַל־פְּנֵ֥י הַמָּֽיִם – “…and the spirit of Elokim was hovering over the face of the water” (Bereishis 1:2).
20:41 – It takes great yearning and tefilos to overcome obstacles that block a person’s spiritual progress.
