Shabbat Prayer-Pesukei d’Zimrah-Hachodesh-Likkutei Moharan Print E-mail
Written by Machberes Avodas Hashem   

Pesukei-Dzimrah-Songs-of-Praise-Kavanot-iPray-HachodeshThis spiritual attainment of the tzaddik comes about only through the people of Israel. When Jews, God forbid, indulge in the secular wisdom of the nations, then the tzaddik falls from his level of perception, and his vision is covered and obscured. But when Jews leave the wisdom of the nations, then the tzaddik is, “As a bridegroom coming out of his chamber (Psalms 19:6),” the tzaddik emerges from his concealment which he had experienced before this. Then, “he rejoices as a strong man to run his course,” for the tzaddik is like a hero in doing and obeying the word of God; indeed, it requires strength to run this course, which one must traverse at the time that Israel is in a state of rebuke, and upon which course one can now run with great speed (Likkutei Moharan I, 49:7).

 

The theme of the Commandments in Hachodesh is to demand of us the great strength necessary, especially at the time when Israel was in a state of rebuke. The people who fulfilled these commandments, risking their lives to set aside an animal for the Pesach Offering, empowered Moshe to become the, “bridegroom coming out of his chamber, rejoicing as a strong man running his course.”
