Orlah 4 – Healing Properties of Vegetation – Moshiach – Rosh Hashanah – Adam HaRishonSheleymus Tefilah – Eating on Erev Yom Kippur – Speaker: Rabbi Nasan Maimon.
Hilkhos Orlah 4 is based on 2Likutey Moharan 1.
00:00 – PARAGRAPH 10b. Ruach Nevuah – Spirit of Prophecy – is perfected at Matan Torah.
*20:00 – The medicinal properties of vegetation can be infused into Tefilah.
21:00 – The Mitzvah of eating on Erev Yom Kippur. Adam and Chava were created back-to-back. Male aspect of Hashem and female aspect of Hashem is similar – a separation is necessary. Spiritual sleep is imposed on Rosh Hashanah to enable this separation. This separation is not complete until Erev Yom Kippur and is accomplished through eating on Erev Yom Kippur.
*23:00 – Sheleymus Tefilah – When prayer is perfected, we can draw the healing properties of vegetation into anything we eat. “I will bless your bread and your water…”
24:00 – “No blade of grass can grow unless an angel strikes it…”
25:00 – ??? Q&R about Hisbodedus in nature.
26:00 – NOTE about not eating dairy or eggs on Erev Yom Kippur – both morning meal and afternoon.
34:00 – NOTE about Kavana when saying the blessing “She asah [nissim l’Avoseinu]…” on Chanukah. Shin Ayin and Shin Hey. The letter Hey represents the Shekhinah.
38:00 – PARAGRAPH 11. כסא הכבוד – Kisey HaKavod – Throne of Hashem. The judgement of Hashem spans from Rosh Hashanah until Hoshana Rabbah. Throughout all of these days Hashem’s desire to judge Israel favorably is especially present – which is alluded to by “Hashem is seated on the Kisey HaKavod“.
44:00 – The term “Holy Throne of Fire” refers to Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkos. During this time, Hashem judges each individual based on their spiritual “place” – which increases His mercy.
45:00 – The sum of squaring each letter in Hashem’s Name Y – H – V – H is b’Gematria “Makom” – Place (186).
46:00 – Sukkah. Din originates from Binah – the “Mother who hovers over her children” – Eym Kol Chai – Kisey HaKavod – Chava.
53:00 – Teshuva resembles the Trop (cantillation) mark called Zarka – returning to one’s place through Aliya and Yerida.
56:00 – On Sukkos we leave our place to renew our connection with Hashem, facilitating His merciful judgement.
58:00 – Q&R about current events – the outbreak of the war in Gaza on Simchas Torah.
