Friday Iyar 2, 5703 17th day of the Omer ** Torah Lessons
Chumash: K'doshim, Shishi with Rashi.
Tanya: Nonetheless a person (p. 237)...and as is known. (p. 237).
My grandfather (the Rebbe Maharash) was born on this day in 5593 (1833).
When he was seven years old he was once tested in his studies by his father, the Tzemach Tzedek. My grandfather did so well in the test that his teacher was enormously impressed. Unable to restrain himself he said to the Tzemach Tzedek, "Well, what do you say? Hasn't he done marvelously?" The Tzemach Tzedek responded: "What is there to be surprised about when Tiferet-within-Tiferet does well?" 
- (Back to text) There are seven Midot or Divine attributes, the first (and major) three being Chessed (kindness), Gevura (severity) and Tiferet (beauty). Each attribute contains elements of the others, Chessed-within-Chessed, Gevura-within-Chessed, etc. 49 combinations in all, corresponding to the 49 days of the Omer. The Rebbe Maharash was born on Iyar 2, the day of Tiferet-within-Tiferet, an extraordinarily high spiritual level.
Exercise for the day: Express your compassion in a new way that goes beyond your previous limitations: express it towards someone to whom you have been callous.From:A Spiritual Guide to the counting of the OmerForty-Nine Steps to Personal RefinementThe Forty-Nine Days of Sefirahby Simon Jacobson$7.95 Soft Cover
