The Kedushah of the Succah Nullifies the Yetzer Hara Who Confuses Us Regarding the Proper Identification of Mitzvos and Aveiros

The Illumination of “Da’as” Prevails in the Succah


For What Is the “Shochet” Culpable?

“אחת למעלה ושבע למטה”


An important personal message from Rabbi Friedman Shlita


Dear Chaveirim.

Please note that this mamar for Yom-Kipur has a great validity for Sukkos as well, due to the fascinating connection that is expressed in this mamar between Yom-Kipur and Sukkes.

This connection was highlighted by the Kohen Gadol when he sprinkled the blood in Kodshei HaKodoshim: “Achas Lemalo Veshevah Lemato” – “One Upwards” which represent Yom-Kipur the one and holiest day of the year, and “Seven Downwards” which represent the seven days of sitting in the Sukke.

This is in no way intended to be an alternative for a separate mamar that you will get Bezras Hashem primarily for Sukkes. I just don’t want you to miss this mamar as well as part of understanding the meaning of the 7 days of Sukkes.

I want to take the opportunity to thank you all for being part of our chabure. I believe that it is your enthusiasm and thirst for Torah that gives us the Siyate Dishmaye to produce all the mamarim.

So I want to wish you all a Gemar Chasimah Tovah. A sweet and healthy year with all the trimmings and personal needs, Yeshues and Refues and let us all be mispallel that we should be zoche to the Geuleh Shelimo very soon Bimeheiro Beyomeinu Omein.

Rosh Hashana 5774

“Reign over the entire world with Your glory”
Our Job on Rosh HaShanah Is to Install HKB”H as King over Every Element of Creation Contained within One’s Being

Recite before Me “Malchiyos” so that I May Reign as King over You
Rosh HaShanah Is the Day of Judgment because that Is
When Adam HaRishon Sinned with the Eitz HaDa’as
Adam HaRishon’s Sin Was Caused by the Neshamos Included within His Being
“נעשה אדם”—All of Creation Participated in the Creation of Man
The Purpose of Creation: “ומלכותו ברצון קיבלו עליהם”
Only Man Has Freedom of Choice
On Rosh HaShanah We Must Rectify the Rebellion against the Sovereignty of Heaven
