00:00 – PARAGRAPH 12b. Sukkos – Simchas Beis HaShoeyva – misdeeds of ancestors – humility Is the key to Hashem’s forgiveness.
*16:00 – NOTE: Although there usually are no Yom Kippur Katan Tefilos on Erev Rosh Chodesh Cheshvan (because it’s still Tishrei) – in response to the recent massive and horrific terrorist attacks and Israel’s present war of retaliation against Gaza, Rabonim have united to declare that Yom Kippur Katan Tefilos will be said today and they encourage that the entire Sefer Tehillim should be recited today by men, women, and children.
21:00 – Q&R – can remembering the misdeeds of ancestors be done in our present generation?
23:40 – Q&R – how is lack of self esteem a form of arrogance?
25:00 – PARAGRAPH 13. Tehillim 30 – Mizmor Shir Chanukas HaBayis leDovid. אֲרוֹמִמְךָ֣ יְ֖הֹוָה כִּ֣י דִלִּיתָ֑נִי וְלֹֽא־שִׂמַּ֖חְתָּ אֹֽיְבַ֣י לִֽי – “I will exalt You, Hashem, for You have raised me up, and You have not allowed my enemies to rejoice over me” (Tehillim 30:2).
32:00 – Maybe some would prefer that Moshiach doesn’t arrive, because they might lose out on luxuries and expensive vacations, etc.
*33:40 – הָפַ֣כְתָּ מִסְפְּדִי֘ לְמָח֪וֹל ֫לִ֥י פִּתַּ֣חְתָּ שַׂקִּ֑י וַתְּאַזְּרֵ֥נִי שִׂמְחָֽה – “You have turned my lament into dancing for me; You loosened my sackcloth and girded me with joy” (Tehillim 30:12). We always close a Tefilah on a joyful note.

41:00 – Reference to Likutey Moharan 2.
44:00 – Q&R – Is the Breslov custom to dance after Tefilah related to the concept of closing Tefilah on a joyful note? Rabbi Michel Dorfman zal desribed the dance after Tefilah as a “Victory Dance.”
45:00 – PARAGRAPH 14. “For someone who has Daas – it’s as if the Beis HaMikdash was rebuilt in his time.” To the degree a person is joyful, the light of the Beis HaMikdash is drawn to him.
