Ata Kadosh • Adi Ran

Bidrachim rabot halachti... Chassidus views the command to Avram, "Lech Lecha", as a command to the holy Neshama to descend from Essential Truth into the highest truth of a physical existence. And also as the ascent from the world of Terach into the highest physical truth. And when we do both, bringing our neshamos into this bodily world and raising our feet to dance higher, higher, higher, the whole shebang gets lifted.
Based on Maamer Vayomer Hashem El Avram, delivered from the Lubavitcher Rebbe's room in 1977

Geshem Kaved Omed Lipol • Aviv Geffen

Today's Hayom Yom: "[It became clear to Chassidim that] the Alter Rebbe meant for them to 'Live with the times' by living with each day of the weekly Parsha." This is actually better suited to Monday then, but enjoy!

UPDATE: This is a cover of a Hebrew cover of Bob Dylan's "A hard rain's a-gonna fall:

Tzei Min Hateiva • Aaron Razel

The Chassidic Masters explain: Noach was instructed to board his boat and board it up,rejecting everything that threatened his values. This is what we do all of our lives; we close the door and study; we close the door and pray; we close the door and shut out what does not belong inside our inner inner sanctum.

Then, Noach was instructed to leave the Ark. Not only that he may now stop hiding from the world, but that he must now run into it... him, his wife and his two sons with them; bring out the animals two-by-two and seven-by-seven; let them roam and run free and spread the news of an ark that saves.
