Each year,[1] the days of the week on which the festivals are celebrated provides a lesson for us in our service of G-d. This year is unique in that Rosh HaShanah is celebrated on a Thursday and a Friday and thus, the holidays flow directly into Shabbos. Furthermore, in the Diaspora, this phenomenon repeats itself on Sukkos and on Shemini Atzeres and Simchas Torah.

Shabbos and the festivals introduce a dimension of holiness into a Jew's life. Thus, we are commanded, "And you shall observe the Shabbos because it is holy" and "These are the festivals of G-d which you shall proclaim to be holy assemblies." On Shabbos and festivals, G-d's holiness permeates all of a Jew's activities, causing him to feel different and uplifted.

This holiness extends to the physical dimensions of one's life as well. Therefore, the Shabbos and festival meals are of a uniquely festive nature. This, in turn, effects the weekdays that follow. Although they are primarily involved with material activities and the efforts to earn a livelihood, the influence of Shabbos and the festivals has a residual effect and makes it easier to fulfill the commandments: "All your deeds shall be for the sake of Heaven," and "Know Him in all your ways."

This is particularly true of Rosh HaShanah which begins the "days of awe," in which every Jewish trembles with a spiritual fear. This has a greater effect on Jews than other holidays. On Rosh HaShanah, the day of judgment on which one's fortunes for the entire year are decided, each Jew's feelings are aroused.

This arousal effects a Jew even when he eats. Thus, we find that, in addition to the command to celebrate Yom Tov in a pleasurable manner, there is a specific command for Rosh HaShanah: "Eat succulent foods and drink sweet beverages because the day is holy unto our L-rd."

Rosh HaShanah also has a greater influence over the other days of the year than other festivals. It is called, "the head of the year," a name which implies that just as the head controls the functioning of the other limbs of the body, similarly, the day of Rosh HaShanah controls the nature of all the days of the year to come.

The present Shabbos, Shabbos Shuvah[2] also is of general significance. It is the first Shabbos of the year and is influenced by the unique nature of the Ten Days of Teshuvah, a time which our Sages associated with the verse, "Seek the L-rd when He may be found; call upon Him when He is near." On this Shabbos, the spiritual arousal of teshuvah is easier to achieve and has a further reaching effect.

Furthermore, this Shabbos includes within it all the Shabbosos of the year. The Arizal explains that the each of the seven days of the week between Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur can atone for any deficiencies and elevate the service of all the corresponding days in the previous year (i.e., Shabbos Shuvah elevates all the Shabbosos of the previous year). Similarly, it can be understood that these days include all the corresponding days in the year to come.[3] Thus, Shabbos Shuvah generates the potential for service during all the Shabbosos of the coming year.

Based on the above, we can appreciate the uniqueness of this year when Rosh HaShanah flows directly into Shabbos. When Rosh HaShanah is celebrated in the middle of the week (or when its celebration begins on Shabbos), although its service is elevated by the Shabbos which follows, there is an interruption between them as reflected in the recitation of Havdalah (which means "separation"). Afterwards, the elevation of the service of Rosh HaShanah by the Shabbos which follows represents a separate development.

In contrast, when Rosh HaShanah flows directly into Shabbos, Havdalah is not recited, only Kiddush. This implies that there is no separation between Rosh HaShanah and Shabbos, and the elevating influence of Shabbos has a direct effect. Indeed, these three days represent a chazakah (a halachic status established by three consecutive repetitions) which adds strength and power to this holiness, intensifying its influence on the coming year.

Furthermore, in the Diaspora, this chazakah is itself repeated three times, thus, establishing a chazakah for the chazakah and further strengthening the influence of holiness.[4] This allows for the holiness of the soul to permeate through our physical substance and reveal itself in a complete manner.[5]

To understand the above concepts in greater depth, it is necessary to explain the difference between Shabbos and the festivals. Although both Shabbos and the festivals share a commonalty, there is also a difference between them. This difference is manifest in the following ways: a) All the thirty-nine forbidden labors are prohibited on Shabbos. In contrast, on the festivals, those labors which are associated with the preparation of food may be performed. b) Shabbos is characterized by the quality of oneg, pleasure. In contrast, the festivals are characterized by the quality of happiness, simchah.[6] For this reason, Torah law places a greater emphasis on wearing fine clothing and eating festive meals on the festivals than on Shabbos. c) Shabbos is referred to as kodesh, "holy," while the festivals are referred to as mikro'ai kodesh ("holy assemblies"), literally, "the calling forth of holiness."

These differences are reflected in the conclusions of the intermediate blessings recited in the Shemoneh Esreh on these days. On Shabbos, we conclude this blessing, "Blessed are You, G-d, who sanctifies the Shabbos." On festivals, however, the blessing is concluded, "...who sanctifies Israel and the seasons."

The Talmud notes the difference between the two and explains: Shabbos has been sanctified by G-d (from the beginning of the seven days of creation onward). In contrast, the festivals are dependent on the Jews' sanctification of them (through the fixing of the calendar).

To explain the inner dimension of this difference: Shabbos represents an ascent above time. For this reason, each week, on Sunday, a new cycle of time begins. In contrast, the festivals represent, the drawing down of holiness within the context of time.

Therefore, Shabbos is referred to as "holy," and is thus in a category of its own. The festivals are, "the calling forth of holiness," i.e., holiness is "called forth" and drawn down into the sphere of the mundane. (Accordingly, the festivals are usually celebrated in the midst of the week.) Thus, the festivals serve as an intermediary to draw down the holiness of Shabbos which is above time into the realm of ordinary weekdays.

This difference also explains why all work is forbidden on Shabbos -- because its holiness transcends totally our mundane reality -- and why, in contrast on the festivals, the labors associated with the preparation of food are permitted. This reflects the fact that, on the festivals, the holiness which is drawn down is related and associated with our material world.

This also explains the connection of Shabbos with the quality of oneg and the festivals, with simchah. Oneg can be felt by a person while he is alone; it does not have to be shared with others, as the holiness of Shabbos stands in a separate category above the material nature of the world. {Thus, we find the quality of kedushah -- holiness -- associated with the service of perishus -- separation from material things and the common people.} Simchah, in contrast, is experienced, in its full extent, only when one is together with others,[7] reflecting how the holiness of the festivals revolves around establishing a connection with our material reality.

Thus, the two -- Shabbos and the festivals -- complement each other. Shabbos reflects a higher level of holiness and, indeed, elevates all existence to a higher plane. The festivals and their emphasis on simchah, however, surpass the Shabbos in the ability to draw down and transmit holiness to the world as it exists within its own context.[8]

This clarifies the uniqueness of the direct progression from the festivals to Shabbos we experience this year: Generally, there is an interruption between the festivals and Shabbos which emphasizes the difference between the service of the festivals (drawing holiness into this world) and Shabbos (elevating the world to a higher level of holiness). Furthermore, these services are separate and distinct from each other.

This year, in contrast, the fact the festivals are followed directly by Shabbos points to a combination of the two services which makes it possible to draw down the elevated state of Shabbos into the world as it exists without nullifying the world's material existence.

The connection between the two is further emphasized by the fact that Havdalah is not recited between the festivals and Shabbos, indicating that between happiness and holiness, there is no separation.[9] Indeed, happiness is not connected with havdalah, separation, at all, for happiness breaks through and negates separation as evidenced by the connection it establishes between people.

This concept shares a special connection with Rosh HaShanah and Shabbos Shuvah. Rosh HaShanah commemorates the creation of man. One of the reasons Rosh HaShanah's celebration was ordained on this day, the anniversary of the sixth day of creation, and not on the anniversary of creation at large -- although this is also associated with Rosh HaShanah as we say in our prayers, "This is the day of the beginning of Your work..." -- is because man carries out the purpose of creation and brings the world at large to its ultimate fulfillment, revealing holiness and G-dliness within the world.[10] This was realized on the very first Rosh HaShanah, when the creation at large followed the instructions given by Adam the first man, "Come let us prostate ourselves, bow down, and bend the knee before G-d, our Maker."[11]

This is the service of Rosh HaShanah each year,[12] to accept G-d as King, and to draw down His Kingship over the world at large. Thus, the service of Rosh HaShanah parallels that of the other festivals. The above also allows us to appreciate the significance of the fact that, this year, Shabbos follows directly after Rosh HaShanah. The first Rosh HaShanah, as well, was followed directly by Shabbos (so that Shabbos could elevate the creation at large). Similarly, this year, the two days of Rosh HaShanah are considered as one single "long day" and, directly afterwards, we enter Shabbos.

There is a further point of connection: The sounding of the shofar is the "mitzvah of the day" for Rosh HaShanah through which the service of crowning G-d as King is carried out. When Rosh HaShanah falls on Shabbos, the shofar is not sounded outside the Beis HaMikdash. Chassidic thought explains that the shofar is not sounded because the spiritual effects it produces are brought about by the holiness of the Shabbos.

Notwithstanding this explanation, since, "deed is most essential," there is an advantage to actually sounding the shofar on both days.[13] This does not negate, however, the spiritual advantage of having the service of the sounding of the shofar elevated by the influence of the Shabbos.

This year possesses, to the greatest extent possible, both dimensions of service. The shofar is sounded for two successive days and, without an interruption being made, this service is elevated by the spiritual influence of Shabbos.

To express this concept using Chassidic terminology: The simple sound of the shofar's blasts[14] arouses the pleasure and desire to rule as King within G-d's essence which, in turn, draws down Divine influence and life-energy to the world at large.

Thus this year, through the shofar blasts of Rosh HaShanah G-d's essence is aroused and Shabbos brings about the revelation of this dimension throughout the world at large, reflecting the "era which is all Shabbos and rest forever," the era of the Redemption.[15] This is reflected in the fact that the activities of Shabbos are "twofold in nature."[16] Similarly, the five letters of the alef-beis which have two forms (e.g., a mem which has one form when written in the midst of a word and another when written at the end of a word) are associated with the redemption.

The above also relates to this week's Torah portion which begins with the verse, "Give ear O heavens, listen earth." The expressions, "Give ear," and "listen" share the same basic meaning. However, the expression "Give ear" refers to a situation in which the speaker is close to the listener and therefore, can speak in his ear. In contrast, "listen" can also refer to hearing from afar. Accordingly, our Sages explain that the choice of phraseology in the above verse indicates how Moshe, our teacher was "close to the heavens and far removed from the earth."

The question arises: The Torah is intended to be a lesson for each individual. How can every Jew be asked to reach such spiritual peaks? Indeed, we find that Yeshayahu the prophet reversed Moshe's phraseology stating, "Hear heavens and give ear, earth" because he could not approach Moshe's rung. Indeed, since this verse is given to the Jews as they exist within the context of this physical world, on the surface, the order should be reversed and the earth should be mentioned before the heavens.

Among the explanations of this concept is that when a Jew studies G-d's Torah, he is lifted above worldliness. Although he continues to exist within the material world, he is "close to the heavens." This explanation, however, is also somewhat problematic. "The Torah is not in the heavens," and it is only in this material world that it is possible to clarify Torah law. Indeed, evenly the heavenly courts come to hear the decisions of Torah law rendered by Jews in this world.[17] Therefore, seemingly, the proper approach to the study of Torah is to be "close to the earth," studying Torah in a manner in which one understands and applies it within the context of this material world, the very opposite of being, "close to the heavens."

The resolution to this difficulty lies in the essential G-dly potential within a Jew which allows him to be "close to the heavens" while he is immersed in the application of Torah to worldly concerns. His state of spiritual elevation elevates, without negating, his existence within the material world.[18]

This means when one studies Torah, one must try to comprehend it according to the approach of "the earth" (and not try to understand it according to the spiritual perspective of "the heavens"). Nevertheless, before studying Torah, one is required to bless the Torah. This blessing draws down[19] a higher dimension of G-dliness within our Torah study,[20] allowing us to feel how Torah has its source in the heavens and through Torah study, the Jews can establish complete unity with the Torah, G-d's wisdom, and thus, with G-d, Himself.

In this context, we can understand the Midrash's statement that in Rabbi Meir's Torah scroll instead of "G-d made them garments of leather" ( with an ayin), it was written, "G-d made them garments of light" ( with an alef). This could be interpreted to mean that the spiritual light from above was reflected in Rabbi Meir's[21] scroll and the inner meaning of the verse was revealed.[22]

Since this farbrengen comes in continuation of Rosh HaShanah, it is proper to mention the names of all the Rebbeim to recall their merit as it was customary in the Beis HaMikdash to mention the city of Chebron (the resting place of the Patriarchs) before the morning sacrifice. Just as the morning sacrifice set the tone for the subsequent sacrifices and service of the day, similarly, the mention of the Rebbeim on a farbrengen connected with Rosh HaShanah sets the tone for the service of the entire year to come.

The personal names of the Rebbeim are all significant: The Baal Shem Tov was called Yisrael to arouse the essential level of Yisrael that exists within every Jew. The Maggid was called DovBer because he drew down G-dliness until the level of "a bear," an animal "overladen with meat." The Alter Rebbe's name, Shneur Zalman, refers to the revelation of the two lights (Shnei Or) of (the revealed and hidden dimensions of) Torah within the sphere of time (Zalman shares the same letters as the word L'zman meaning "to time"). DovBer, the Mitteler Rebbe's name, has a similar intent as that of the Maggid's name. However, his position among the Chabad Rebbeim, indicates that his service is connected with "the broadening of the river," explaining the seminal points of Chassidus in depth. The Tzemach Tzedek's names, Menachem Mendel, are both names associated with Mashiach. The Rebbe Maharash's name Shmuel is connected with the prophet Shmuel (and thus with the Haftorah of Rosh HaShanah which describes his conception). The Rebbe Rashab's name, Sholom DovBer, reflects drawing down Sholom (peace which is connected with Torah and, in particular, P'nimiyus HaTorah) with the level of DovBer described above. Similarly, the Previous Rebbe's name, Yosef Yitzchok, is connected with the services of "G-d will add on to me another son," and "All those who hear will rejoice with me."

Nevertheless, it is proper to mention the Rebbeim by their titles, the Baal Shem Tov, the Maggid of Mezeritch, the Alter Rebbe, the Mitteler Rebbe, the Tzemach Tzedek, the Rebbe Maharash who is associated with the approach of Lechat'chilah Ariber, the Rebbe Neshamaso Eden, and the Nassi of our generation, and not by their personal names. This points to their function as Nessi'im.

The Nassi is the yechidah of his entire generation and thus, includes all the souls of his generation. This is evident from the acronym for the word Nasi, "a spark of Ya'akov, our Patriarch." Just as Ya'akov's soul included in it the souls of all the Jewish people, so, too, this quality is reflected in each Nasi. Each Nasi grants the potential for the people of his generation to reveal the dimension of yechidah within their individual existence and within the world at large. This will lead to the revelation of Mashiach, the yechidah of the entire Jewish people with the establishment of a dwelling for G-d in this world.

This revelation will be enhanced by singing a niggun associated with each of the Rebbeim. A niggun is "the pen of the soul," and reveals one's inner dimensions.

May each Jew make maximum use of the combined influences of Rosh HaShanah and Shabbos to influence his behavior in the year to come. This will add to the kesivah v'chasimah tovah for a good and sweet year in both material and spiritual things which G-d has granted us. (Indeed, the judgment of Rosh HaShanah concerns primarily a Jew's material needs.)

[The Rebbe Shlita proceeded to mention blessings associated with each letter of the alef-beis, explaining that these are general blessing including all sorts of good.} May it be a year when "I will show you wonders." This implies an added positive quality beyond that of the previous year, "a year of miracles." There are times when, although miracles are wrought, "the person to whom the miracle occurred does not appreciate it." This year, G-d's miracles will be openly revealed. This will enable us to appreciate the miracles more and use them more effectively for positive purposes.

May these wonders also include wonders, "as in the days of your exodus from Egypt," with the coming of the Messianic redemption.[23]

   

Notes:

  1. (Back to text) Translator's Note: This year, because the second day of Rosh HaShanah was celebrated on Friday, the farbrengen which is usually held toward nightfall to draw down the influence of Rosh HaShanah into the year which follows was postponed and held on a similar hour on Shabbos. Thus, on Shabbos Shuvah, there were two farbrengens, the farbrengen customarily held Shabbos afternoon, and a farbrengen which began before nightfall in connection with Rosh HaShanah. Nevertheless, the content of both the farbrengens was included in a single text and edited by the Rebbe Shlita in this manner. This is the body of the text which is presented here in translation.

  2. (Back to text) The name Shabbos Shuvah is given because the Haftorah begins, Shuvah Yisrael, "Israel, return..." Often, the Shabbos is referred to as Shabbos Teshuvah, "the Shabbos of Teshuvah," because it is the Shabbos of the Ten Days of Teshuvah.

  3. (Back to text) Indeed, this is the primary element of the service of Tishrei which is a "head" (Tishrei shares the same letters as the word reishis meaning "head") of the new year and sets the tone for its service. Nevertheless, within the service of Tishrei is also included the elevation of the service of the previous year.

  4. (Back to text) Note the public letters of the Rebbe Shlita for a detailed explanation of this matter.

  5. (Back to text) Even the highest levels of the soul, the yechidah (and even the yechidah of the yechidah), the dimension of the soul which is totally at one with G-d will be revealed.

  6. (Back to text) There is also a dimension of simchah connected with Shabbos (indeed, the Biblical phrase "And on the day of your celebrations" is interpreted as a reference to Shabbos). However, this dimension is surpassed by the celebrations of the festivals and is overshadowed by the quality of oneg.

  7. (Back to text) This is reflected in the emphasis Torah law places on inviting guests for the festivals.

  8. (Back to text) Shabbos also has an effect within the world as reflected in the laws requiring that our pleasure by expressed in festive meals. This, however, stems from the fact that the holiness of Shabbos elevates the world, lifting it above its normal circumstances.

    Conversely, there is a dimension of holiness associated with the festivals (and, therefore, any labors not associated with the preparation of food are prohibited). This, however, stems from the fact that the festivals have drawn down a measure of holiness into the world.

  9. (Back to text) Indeed, Havdalah is recited when a weekday follows a festival not because of the primary element of a festival, happiness, but rather because of the holiness which is associated with the festival.

  10. (Back to text) In doing so, man becomes G-d's partner in creation. This is alluded to in our Sages' interpretation of the phrase, "all that G-d created to function," as "to correct;" i.e., man brings the creation at large to its desired state.

  11. (Back to text) Although man is the most important creation, to emphasize how he is intended to effect the creation at large, man was created last, after all other beings.

    (Our Sages explain that man was created last, "so that he could enter the feast immediately." However, based on the principle, "Man was created to labor," the previous quote can be interpreted to mean, not merely that man was intended to benefit from the entire world, but rather, through his work man would be able to elevate the world by partaking of its feasts and through the totality of his service of Torah and mitzvos.)

  12. (Back to text) Although as a whole, the service repeats itself, in particular, each year, it must be carried out on a new and higher level.

  13. (Back to text) This is reflected in the fact that, even when Rosh HaShanah fell on Shabbos, the shofar was sounded in the Beis HaMikdash (because of the greater potential generated by the higher level of holiness there).

  14. (Back to text) These resemble the simple sound of the letter alef which serves as the intermediary between the essential breath coming the heart and the 22 letters of speech. An intermediary shares a point of connection with both elements to which it relates. Similarly, the alef has a simple sound, thus, relating to the essential breath of the heart. Simultaneously, it is the first of the letters and thus, shares a creation to the others. This is related to the concept of Rosh HaShanah for the letters were the medium with which G-d created the world. Furthermore, the alef stands for the words Alufo shel olam, "L-rd of the world."

  15. (Back to text) This is also related to the letter alef. The difference between the Hebrew words golah ("exile") and geulah ("redemption") is an alef. By drawing down the revelation of Alufo shel olam into the world, exile can be transformed into redemption.

  16. (Back to text) Significantly, the two-fold nature of Shabbos is discussed in the ma'amar from Parshas Beshallach in Likkutei Torah. On the surface, it is slightly problematic. Likkutei Torah is a continuation of Torah Or as obvious from the fact that Torah Or ends with Parshas Vayakhel and Likkutei Torah includes ma'amarim from Parshas Pekudei and onward. Thus, the question arises: Why did the Tzemach Tzedek decide to include the abovementioned ma'amar from Parshas Beshallach in Likkutei Torah?

    It can, however, be explained that the Tzemach Tzedek chose this ma'amar as the beginning of the text to emphasize the connection between Likkutei Torah and the ultimate redemption. (In this context, it is noteworthy to mention that when the Rebbe Maharash asked why Mashiach did not come in the year 5608, the year the Alter Rebbe had designated as appropriate for his coming, the Tzemach Tzedek answered him, that Likkutei Torah was printed that year.)

    This points to the difference between Likkutei Torah and Torah Or. Although originally, the two were intended to part of a single set, the printing of Likkutei Torah was delayed because of a government decree. However, because of the delay, when it was printed, it also included the Tzemach Tzedek's explanations in contrast to Torah Or which contains merely the Alter Rebbe's teachings.

  17. (Back to text) Therefore, when there was a difference of opinion between G-d and the heavenly court on a question concerning Torah law, the question was presented to Rabbah bar Nachmaini and he was asked to render judgment while he existed on this physical plane, a soul enclothed in a body.

  18. (Back to text) This is related to the explanation of the progression from the festivals to Shabbos mentioned above. When Shabbos and the festivals are separate the material aspects of the world which are influenced by the festivals and Shabbos (a state of holiness which can be referred to as "the heavens") are both represented, but they exist in a manner in which they are separate from each other. When, however, in a year like this, the festivals and Shabbos follow one another; the material aspects of the world exist in a Shabbos-like manner.

  19. (Back to text) This is implied by the very word for blessing, berachah, which also has the connotation, "extension."

  20. (Back to text) This concept is often explained within our Sages' interpretation of the verse, "Why was the land destroyed?... Because you forsook My Torah." The Sages explain that although the Jews studied Torah, they did not recite the blessings beforehand. Therefore, they were not able to draw down G-dliness in the Torah they studied.

  21. (Back to text) This is also indicated in the name, Rabbi Meir, which means "to illuminate," for he "illuminated the eyes of the Sages with his wisdom." Indeed, his colleagues "were not able to understand the full extent of his wisdom," and, therefore, often, his opinion was not accepted as halachah.

  22. (Back to text) Trans. Note: The Rebbe Shlita noted the difficulty with this Midrash because the Midrash states, "it was written in Rabbi Meir's Torah scroll...." (seemingly, with actual ink on parchment), thus the Torah scroll would be halachically unacceptable. The Rebbe Shlita did not resolve the difficulty.

  23. (Back to text) This redemption will be accompanied by the ingathering of exiles. Indeed, in the previous year, we already received a foretaste of this revelation when thousands of Jews were able to emigrate from behind the Iron Curtain.
