Friday Adar Sheini 12 5703 Torah Lessons
Chumash: Vayikra, Shishi with Rashi.
Tanya: Ch. 37. This (p. 167)... G-d forbid. (p. 169).
The Torah portion dealing with altar offerings begins: "A man who offers (Yakriv) of you an offering to G-d." 
The logical order of the words should be, "A man of you  who offers, etc."
The Alter Rebbe answers:  "A man who offers" - in order that a man become closer  to G-d - "of you, an offering to G-d" - he must bring the offering, of himself. He must sacrifice his personal "animal," the desire for evil that is called the animal soul.
