A powerful class brings the Machon Chana Tishrei series to a close. Succos is connected to Shemini Atzeres. The theme of lulav is the beginning of the process of internalizing Tishrei. To be motivated by an inspirational Jewish environment is good but not enough. It is necessary to personalize the experience of being with Hashem in His Palace during Tishrei. Which is why, according to Kabbala, it is important to bless the lulav in the sukkah in order to bring the makif (surrounding) "vapor of the cloud" from all directions into our hearts. Then at Shemini Atzeres, we pause, do nothing, and make it real. Don't miss the wonderful stories of the Rebbe related to Sukkos and Shemini Atzeres. Easy to follow with some intermediate concepts. Note: "velt" means world in Yiddish. 36.22 min.
