RZR – Sichos HaRan – Lesson 23b – Para. 86-89 – Wedding Customs, Esrog, Thirteen Attributes

Speaker: Rabbi Zvi Aryeh Rosenfeld z”l.
00:00 – SECTION 86. A wife receives advancement through her husband, but does not descend with him if he falls. Parnassah (livelihood) depends on the respect a husband shows for his wife.
02:21 – Why is the face of a Jewish bride covered with a veil? “The beautiful maiden without eyes” (Zohar 96-97) refers to emunah (faith).
04:22 – The kovod (honor) of Hashem is that which is hidden. Taharas Mishpacha – laws of marriage purity. The importance of tznius – modesty in dress.
16:41 – A wedding is compared to the giving of the Torah at Sinai.
18:00 – The discourse given by the chasan (groom) at his wedding helps to unite the couple.
19:48 – Custom of dancers doing somersaults at a wedding alludes to Moshe Rabbeinu ascending Har Sinai and Hashem descending (so to speak) to give the Torah.
20:54 – SECTION 87. The esrog is analogous to a wife.
24:57 – The moach (marrow) in the bones is the moach (brain) of the body. The marrow is sutained by fats and fluids. Why a foolish person often has a beautiful wife.
26:16 – The wisdom of a person enlightens his face. His path before him is illuminated, he can see clearly.
28:00 – Spiritual dimensions of the lulav (date palm branch) and esrog (citron). The beauty of the esrog comes from the tears a Jew sheds on Yom Kippur.
31:34 – SECTION 88. Redeeming speech from exile.
36:37 – SECTION 89. One sin leads to another. The Thirteen Midos (attributes) of Hashem’s mercy.
