This week we pass from the Jewish month of Sivan to Tammuz. Our 3rd article is a kabbalistic look at the difference between the two.
This Tuesday (3 Tammuz) coincides with the 23rd yahrzeit of the Lubavitcher Rebbe,
a profound student and teacher of Kabbalah, in additional to his many better known accomplishments.
A variety of teachings by him, from him and about him can be found in the first two and last two articles, as well as quotes of or hints to him in #4-5.
In addition, the lead article also contains insights for the 5th chapter of Pirkei Avot,
for those who continue to study the ethical tractate on Shabbat afternoons throughout the summer.
