20 Kislev 5717
Toras Menachem vol. 8 page 278-297.
Sicha Six.
Class One.
Page 278-9.
Proof from Niglah for learning Chassidus.
Our Rabbeiim would show their Niglah so it would lead others to Chassidus.
It is one Torah.
Class Two.
Page 279- 80.
To explain to a Baal Niglah why he must learn Chassidus you must speak his language.
He claims לדעת זה התינוק and why must he have ידיעת סדר השתלשלות and ידיעת המציאות באלקות.
And we must explain.
[The Rebbe is different than his predecessors when it comes to learning Chassidus: it is enough that it is ידיעת אלקות].
Class Three.
Page 280.
Krias Shema and Tefilla are comparable to Torah.
A discussion on Davening and children.
Class Four.
Page 280- 283.
Three understandings of what Davening is:
1) Asking when we feel we have a need.
2) When in serious danger.
3) By focusing on how dependant upon Hashem we are.
This third level makes Davening a constant DeOraisa obligation.
Class Five.
Page 283- 5.
How and when Krias Shma and Shmone Esrei are certainly DeOraisa. 
Sicha Seven. 
Class Six.
Page 285-6.
Introduction: the story of Reb Nachum (the Mitteler Rebbe's son) and the Alter Rebbe and the new style [to wear a patch on his nerw outfit].
A new Klipa: Kereping up with the neighbors at great personal cost.
Class Seven.
Page 286-8.
Keeping up with the neighbors continued.
The story of determining greatness and position by he who can spit farther.
Class Eight.
Page 288-9.
End of Sicha about spening.
When one has the right priorities, in the end he has everything materially and spiritually.
Sicha Eight. 
Class Nine.
Page 290.
Lechayim for Morocco new Modos.
Biyamin Gorodetzky.
Sicha Nine.
Class Ten.
Page 290-292.
New Sicha: מאלמים אלומים ןהנה אנחנו מאלמים אלומים בתוך השדה... קמה אלומתי וגו' ותשתחונה לאלומתי.
1) Taking from Klipa מאלמים אלומים
2) Making Klipa to Kedusha קמה אלמתי
Class Eleven.
Page 292- 4.
Yosef and his brothers are bundling wheat. There are two steps to the process of transforming them into Kedusha:
1) Collect and unify them.
2) Bow them to Yosef's bundle.
Until the bowing happens the bundling is not secure.
The lesson: to transform to holiness joining the alumnus is only the beginning you must then be what the Yeshiva stands for.
Class Twelve.
This class began with 20 minutes on the באבא סאלי on the occasion of his Yahrtzeit.
Page 294-6.
Why one is not secure until his Metzius is nullified.
Lesson: when the alumni gather the real pint is not external (money) but internal they should be as were (or should have been) in Yeshiva.
