  • No Tachanun at Mincha.

The Tzemach Tzedek writes: The love expressed in "Beside You I wish for nothing," [1] means that one should desire nothing other than G-d, not even "Heaven" or "earth" i.e. Higher Gan Eden and Lower Gan Eden, for these were created with a mere Yud... [2].

The love is to be directed to Him alone, to His very Being and Essence.

This was actually expressed by my master and teacher [3] (the Alter Rebbe) when he was in a state of D'veikut [4] and he exclaimed as follows:

I want nothing at all! I don't want Your Gan Eden, I don't want Your Olam Haba... I want nothing but You alone.

Good Yom Tov.

May You Be Inscribed And Sealed For A Good Year
In The Study Of Chassidus And The Ways Of Chassidus



  1. (Back to text) Tehillim 73:25.

  2. (Back to text) The Divine Essence-name, Havayeh (the Tetragrammaton), is source of all creation. Olam haba, spiritual Hereafter, including Gan Eden, was created from the first (and smallest) letter - Yud - of the Name.

  3. (Back to text) After "...teacher" there appears in the Hebrew the expression "may his soul rest in Eden."

  4. (Back to text) Ecstatic, cleaving devotion to G-d. See Sh'vat 23.
