00:00 – Nevuah brings Beirur HaMedamehMasa uMatan – Business Dealings with Emunah .
08:30 – Eretz Yisrael is the best place to achieve Beirur HaMedameh. Avraham Avinu was the first to bring about purification from the sin of Adam HaRishon.
*10:30 – Q&R – Explanation of Medameh – imagination – analogy of a child playing with toys as if they are real.
12:30 – Chayei SarahEretz Yisrael is called Eretz Chaim – “Land of Living” (Tehillim 27:13) because only in Eretz Yisrael can a person achieve Arichas Yomim – Length of Days. Avraham Avinu acquired Arichas Yomim through purchasing a part of Eretz Yisrael.
20:00 – Shuls and Yeshivas in Chutz L’Aretz are an aspect of Eretz Yisrael.

29:00 – Nevuah eliminates confusion of the Medameh and restores Hischadshus and faith in the constant renewal of the world. Renewal of one’s thinking process needs to be, at the very least, daily – “Modeh Ani – Rabbah Emunasecha”.
31:00 – Hischadshus in Krias Shema“…that I commanded you today…”
34:00 – Arichas Yomim – respect for Hashem increases life. An elder is not determined by biological age – an elder is one who has acquired Chokhma and Emunah in Chiddush HaOlam.
