2022-10-24 – LH4 – YD1 – Ribis 5 – Para. 7-8 – Bereishis – Adam, Chava, and the Nachash; Creation Is Only Fully Repaired by Tzaddikim

Ribis 5 – Para. 7-8. Parshas Bereishis – Adam, Chava, and the Nachash; Creation Is Only Fully Repaired by Tzaddikim; Parshas Ki Seitzei – Neshech. Speaker: Rabbi Nasan Maimon.
Hilkhos Ribis 5 is based on Likutey Moharan 179.

00:00 – Dedications. PARAGRAPH 7. נֶ֕שֶׁךְ כָּל־דָּבָ֖ר אֲשֶׁ֥ר יִשָּֽׁךְ – “…interest on food or interest on any [other] item for which interest is [normally] taken” (Devarim 23:20, Ki Seitzei). Taking interest for a loan is similar to loshon hara – evil speech. Neshech alludes to the nachash – serpent.
04:22 – The present exile is lengthened due to loshon hara and makhlokes – conflict.
05:42 – Ribis is the opposite of peace. Yosef and his brothers.
07:25 – PARAGRAPH 8.
08:29 – Bereishis contains the letters spelling b’Alef Tishrei.
09:00 – The body and soul are judged together after a person passes away.
10:06 – The repair done by the tzaddik relates to before creation and after creation.
12:00 – Creation is only fully repaired by tzaddikim.
14:25 – Tzaddikim on Rosh Hashanah. Why Rosh Hashanah is the first day of the Eseres Yemei Teshuvah – Ten Days of Return.
17:45 – Teshuvah is an aspect of returning the soul to its original Source. It’s compared with the cantillation Zarka . זרקה means to throw something back to the place from which it was taken. Reference to Likutey Moharan 35.
18:50 – Traveling to tzaddikim for Rosh Hashanah.
23:34 – Q&R about sweetening dinim at their root.
24:52 – Parshas Bereishis – The task of Adam HaRishon.
*25:59 – How could Adam have failed in his task? The origin of sheker – falsehood.
29:29 – Reference to Likutey Moharan 51.
30:38 – Why the nachash approached Chava rather than Adam.
32:00 – Ish v’ishaman and woman – parallel nefesh v’gufa – soul and body. Three partners in the creation of a child: husband and wife provide the body and Hashem provides the soul. The main test of man is tikkun habris. Chava was created through the concept of sleep.
35:32 – Man is a microcosm of creation. Reference to Likutey Moharan 49.
36:50 – Q&R about Chava being created through sleep.
37:45 – Q&R about tahara – purity – and bechira – free will.
*38:51 – Parshas Bereishis. Q&R about the creation of Chava through sleep. Adam and Chava were one being at first. Hashem brought sleep to them in order to separate Chava into a separate being.
40:26 – The gematria of Adam (45) is Y-K-V- K (26) plus Chava (19). Zachor (227) plus nekeva (157) plus one is the gematria of Shekhinah.
41:30 – Parshas Bereishis. How the nachash – serpent – deceived Chava.
43:22 – Why it is a tradition to visit kivrei tzaddikim on Erev Rosh Hashanah.
44:32 – Closing NOTE – today is Yom Kippur Katan. Blessing.
45:16 – Q&R about how a tzaddik can affect changes in the world after he passes away and no longer has bechirah – free will. Through aliyas in Olam HaEmes, the tzaddikim are able to repair the world.
