10:00 – PARAGRAPH 23. Returning to the home after Sukkos on Shemini Atzeres.
18:00 – Returning into the home after Sukkos brings Hischadshus – a sense of renewal. This renewal depends on being connected to the true Tzaddikim because of their various levels of Nevuah – prophecy. Emunah bChiddush HaOlam – Faith in the Ongoing Renewal of the World.

*33:32 – NOTE: By traveling to Uman for Rosh Hashanah, a person is actually traveling to Eretz Yisrael. The Tzaddik has the strongest connection to Eretz Yisrael, so the Kever of a Tzaddik is an aspect of Eretz Yisrael. When people travel to Uman, they are renewing and strengthening their connection to Eretz Yisrael and the Beis HaMikdash.

49:00 – HaKol Kol Yaakov is the source of Kedushah – holiness.
52:20 – Q&R about the term “A Field of Holy Apples”.
