Speaker: Rabbi Nasan Maimon. Yayin Nesech 3 is based on 2Likutey Moharan 26. Topics: Printing and Publishing Holy Books and the Arrival of Moshiach.
00:00 – Dedications and PARAGRAPH 6.
01:54 – לֹֽא־יָס֥וּר שֵׁ֨בֶט֙ מִֽיהוּדָ֔ה וּמְחֹקֵ֖ק מִבֵּ֣ין רַגְלָ֑יו עַ֚ד כִּֽי־יָבֹ֣א שִׁילֹ֔ה וְל֖וֹ יִקְּהַ֥ת עַמִּֽים – “The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor the student of the law from between his feet, until Shiloh comes, and to him will be a gathering of peoples” (Bereishis 49:10). “Scepter” also refers to the pen of the scribe writing and publishing books of Torah. Shiloh begematria is Moshe. As a result of the many holy books that will be printed, the Torah will not be forgotten.
03:26 – חַכְלִילִ֥י עֵינַ֖יִם מִיָּ֑יִן וּלְבֶן־שִׁנַּ֖יִם מֵֽחָלָֽב – “He [Yehudah] is red eyed from wine and white toothed from milk” (Bereishis 49:12).
03:37 – מְשִׁ֙יחַ֙ אֱלֹהֵ֣י יַֽעֲקֹ֔ב – “…the anointed of Hashem of Yaakov…” (2Shmuel 23:1). Dovid HaMelech is also an aspect of Moshiach. The soul of Moshiach will be a combination of both Moshe Rabbeinu and Dovid HaMelech. After this soul is revealed, there will never be another exile.
05:30 – “Until Shiloh arrives” – the “left side” of the blood will be merged and subservient to the “right side”m resulting in the harmony between Torah and tefilah (prayer). This is an aspect of “holy wine”, and is why the topic of engraving is alluded to by Yaakov Avinu in juxtaposition to wine.
10:24 – Q&R – When we make tefilos out of the Torah, is this way of bringing Moshiach? Definitely yes – we are creating a counter-force to evil: nachash is 358, satan is 359, Moshiach is 358, and Moshe-Dovid is 359.
11:22 – PARAGRAPH 7. שִׂימֵ֨נִי כַֽחוֹתָ֜ם עַל־לִבֶּ֗ךָ כַּֽחוֹתָם֙ עַל־זְרוֹעֶ֔ךָ כִּֽי־עַזָּ֤ה כַמָּ֨וֶת֙ אַֽהֲבָ֔ה קָשָׁ֥ה כִשְׁא֖וֹל קִנְאָ֑ה רְשָׁפֶ֕יהָ רִשְׁפֵּ֕י אֵ֖שׁ שַׁלְהֶֽבֶתְיָֽה“Place me like a seal on your heart, liked a seal on your arm, for love is as strong as death, zeal is as strong as the grave; its coals are coals of fire of a great flame (Shir HaShirim 8:6). The term חותם – seal – is an aspect of imprinting. This verse alludes to the innovations of printing technology to establish and distribute words of Torah. Merging Torah and tefilah is therefore accomplished through the printing and publishing holy books.
14:23 – PARAGRAPH 8. The kashrus of wine: if a wine container stands empty for 12 months, it’s considered free of any impurities from non-kosher wine. The 365 days of the solar year correspond to the 365 gidin through which the blood flows to all parts of the body.
16:51 – Yom Kippur is a composite of all 365 days of the year and therefore can rectify them, as in יָמִ֥ים יֻצָּ֑רוּ וְל֖וֹ (כתיב וְלֹ֖א) אֶחָ֣ד בָּהֶֽם – “… days have been formed and one of them is His…” (Tehillim 139:16).
23:10 – יְדַבֵּ֤ר יְהוָֹה֙ אֶל־משֶׁ֔ה אַֽחֲרֵ֣י מ֔וֹת שְׁנֵ֖י בְּנֵ֣י אַֽהֲרֹ֑ן בְּקָרְבָתָ֥ם לִפְנֵֽי־יְהוָֹ֖ה וַיָּמֻֽתוּ – “And Hashem spoke to Moshe after the death of Aharon’s two sons, when they drew near before Hashem, and they died” (Vayikra 16:1-2, Achrei Mos).
18:17 – The sons of Aharon HaKohen died because of a mistake they made with wine (Vayikra Rabba 12:1).
22:11 – PARAGRAPH 9. The 12 months of the year correspond to the 12 tribes and their twelve gemstones in the Choshen Mishpat.
24:10 – The holiness and power of all Torah publishing radiates rom the engraving of letters on these twelve gemstones.
25:37 – From the Urim vThumim we received aitza – counsel.
27:01 – PARAGRAPH 10. גָּלְמִ֚י | רָ֘א֚וּ עֵינֶ֗יךָ וְעַל־סִפְרְךָ֘ כֻּלָּ֪ם יִכָּ֫תֵ֥בוּ יָמִ֥ים יֻצָּ֑רוּ וְל֖וֹ (כתיב וְלֹ֖א) אֶחָ֣ד בָּהֶֽם – “Your eyes saw my unformed body, and on Your book they were all written; days have been formed and one of them is His” (Tehillim 139:16).
28:36 – Through the miracles of print technology “everything will eventually be written.”
30:21 – Q&R – Digital publishing is an aspect of print publication.
