Page 59 [of the pamphlet] 7th line of the page – line starts: 'mishum'. (P45 in the book)

Chochmah is called truth, since infinity rests there.

Chochmah does not seek to have a personal experience. It seeks to identify with the truth itself.

Chochmah relates to the trace/roshem of infinity.

The surrounding light (sovev) imbues itself in an inner way. You sense a circumstance in a deep and personal way.

You have soul sensitivities. Don't ignore 'em. Don't trivialize them.

Chochmah recognizes the trace of infinity and pays attention to it.

Even when the infinite light is removed, its impression remains. The basis of kedusha/holiness is never totally uprooted.

It does not subscribe to worldly rules. Holiness is not limited by presence and absence. It goes back to the Source of sources.

So even when its expression is removed it is not totally uprooted.

But only a trace remains after the tzimtzum/contraction. The principle of a trace means that it does not impose itself on you. But if you look to see it – it is there...

This trace/roshem is an element of the infinity that rests in chochmah/wisdom.

This is like sight. It can relate to reality, without seeking a personal relationship to it... [a fool seeks personal experience, a wise man seeks truth...]

Chochma is not a vessel/keili for infinity. It observes infinity. It does not find infinity by investigation. It see because it is shown.

Here's a map of today's shiur, prepared by Michoel Pais:

Map of today's shiur 29 Kislev

Post tzimtzum:
Impression of the Ohr ein sof remains.
Rule: Any thing of Kedushah is never totally uprooted from its place. 

Kedushah - Removed from world. Not bound by wordly rules. (Worldly rule: it is either there or not there)
Why? B/c returns to Source of Sources. He is always "there".

Oir ein sof becomes non imposing, but impression still remains. 

This is bhinas ohr ein sof that rests in Chochmah.

Principle of resting in Chochmah:
Ex:Sight. See w/o personal experience/verification. 
Sub ex: Sky. Seems real! Even w/o grabbing it.

Fool seeks personal experience.
Wise man seeks emes

Chochmah observes ohr ein sof. 

No investigation needed. No seeking.

Ohr ein sof doesn't go away, it conceals itself.

Silug haOhr
Ex: House becomes Home. Encompasses/provides for all facets of human life. Furniture setup accordingly.
Ex: Lift the walls! 
Reality left bare. 

(In case one thought it was all there due to walls, shelter, etc, now one sees that it was exclusively due to reality of home)

Ex #2) pilgrims in wasteland/jungle of america. Q: Where does the projection of inhabiting the land come from?
Human invention vs Meant to be inhabited

There is a Roshem/Impression of the Creator in all that exists. 

This is seen and identified by Chochmah.

^Chichmah is called Emes b/c Ohr Ein Sof Rests in it.

Rests: Finds a place. Is comfortable. 
One cannot rest on the street, even on a comfortable bed!

In Chochmah is mislabesh the Ohr haSovev in bhinas pnimius. 

Ohr haSovev is a makif, it cannot be mislabesh! In chochmah, it is.

BHinas Pnimius: it understands the sovev. Relates to it. Unique inyon of Chochmah.

Binah needs keilim. "What do you see there?"

Chochmah doesnt need that.

Ohr haSovev itself is bhinas pnimius

“Air & Light” p 59

Page 59 [of the pamphlet] 5th line of the page – line starts: 'eino'. (P45 in the book)

We are talking about the tzimtzum. It is a 2 step process.

It is the retraction and then the reduction of the effect of the source of the light.

A host and a guest remain separate people, but there is a bond and a transmission of light between them.

For the visit to translate down into a meal and a conversation, the 'light' element has to be removed.

The 'presence' element per se overpowers the communication element.

For talk and food to come into focus there has to be a removal of the light of presence.

The ohr ein sof is all encompassing.


This is the sense that life is provided to us, we don't have to go and seek it. Each breath we take is given to us. The air-pressure pushes breath into us... through this physical activity we relate to the infinity of life...

Then this overall reality is removed and the focus comes down to the details of conversation and food...

The infinite light can dwell in chochmah/inspiration, even though it is a faculty. Chochmah is an observer, but it says, “I can relate to the truth as you are showing me.”

And chochmah is called truth – the 'reality of truth' – not the use of the word as an adjective.

This is because the infinite light dwells there...

Not the full infinity of the light – rather, this is a trace or an imprint (roshem) of the infinite light that dwells in chochmah.

Page 59 [of the pamphlet] 6th line of the page – line starts: 'hanishar'. (P45 in the book)

We are talking about the tzimtzum/contraction.

We are deciphering what occurs during the process... It is 2 steps. Firstly it is a removal/siluk of the infinite light – the concept that from Godliness could come a world...

Godliness per se is infinite, and world is all about finitude and definition.

This is indicative of how the world percieves faculties and how chassidus sees them.

The world sees them as reactive to experiences – or the result of training... the way the physical reality is reflected in your mind.


The chassidus see them as soul expressions, and not the result of experiences in the world. The soul seeks a way to function and express itself in the world.

The tzimtzum contracts the soul perception so that the soul can bring an expression or action that is appropriate for world.

The 2nd tzimtzum is a reduction of the light. This reduction is to such an extent that there is no trace of the infinity.

Yet there is an imprint of the infinity that remains in inner mind, in the chochmah, in the inspiration of the human being.

“Beyond Coffee; Beyond Proof” p 59


A man has mind, but he has something superior to that – he has soul – an infinite reality – that is beyond exposure and being spoken of...

Page 59 [of the pamphlet] fist line of the page – line starts: 'kulanah'. (P45 in the book)

We are dealing with the contraction/tzimtzum, which hid the infinite light. This exposed the sphirot which had been hidden.

This was not yet sufficient for the sphirot to function for the worldly level – this needed a 2nd tzimtzum.

The first was call siluk/removal and the 2nd is called mi-ut/reduction.

A man has mind, but he has something superior to that – he has soul – an infinite reality – that is beyond exposure and being spoken of...

The soul gives life to the body – it reduces itself, and there we know it through the body experience.

Then there is a higher level – knowing the soul/neshama per se.

At this infinite level, finite concerns and elements do not reach.


For sphirot to be exposes, the infinite/ein sof element has to be removed [this is the first contraction].

The second tzimtzum is a reduction of the light.

Think of Shabbat or the lights of channuka (which are beyond function [it is forbidden to use them]) – they are in world, but beyond it. This is reality above, or before the second tzimtzum.

The truth of the Ohr ein sof, leaves an imprint on chochmah/wisdom. If we don't contaminate or distract our minds we have the ability to relate to truth – truth per se.

There is a Godly truth that can persist through the horror – see talk from Nissan Mangel – here.

Chochmah/wisdom represents truth. Truth is only Godly. World is not truth – it has a structure.

This is why a human being cannot be shaken out of his faith. He can become distracted from it, or disoriented, but not really lose it.

Infinity feels comfortable in chochmah and dwells there. Not the ohr ein sof itself, but a trace of it.

“Nothing Lost” p 58 - 59


It becomes revealed, but does not lose its potency. It functions in the world, but cannot be really identified.

Page 58 [of the pamphlet] last line of the page – line starts: 'ha-ohr'. (P45 in the book)

Think of the 'revelation of the hidden' (gilui ha-helem). This is a subtle principle.

There is a dual emphasis – a] a revelation where you can identify what is, on the other hand, b] it is the revelation of the hidden – that which is inherently hidden and not identifiable. And essentially it remains hidden.

It becomes revealed, but does not lose its potency. It functions in the world, but cannot be really identified – think of a talent.

This is the way it is in atzilut.

The human insights, sensitivities, and aspirations are inexplicable in worldly terms. The human being is a miracle. He represents his Creator. Man is a super-worldly presentation in the world.

A day is noted by the lunar and solar cycle. But the definition of day preceded the sun and moon.

Day is such a marvelous demarcation of time and is precisely calibrated for the world and human beings...

It is not the result of experience. It is an initial creation. And each of the 7 days has its function. And you may lose sight of the essential quality of the day, so He created the 7th day – a golden day – symbolic of the Godly definition – connecting back to God Himself.

This is an example fo gilui ha-helem [revelation of the hidden].

Page 58 [of the pamphlet] 3rd to last line of the page – line starts: 'nitchalku'. (P45 in the book)

Think of the 'revelation of the hidden' (gilui ha-helem).

Think of a dark room and you turn on the light. What was concealed is now revealed. You couldn't see it, but it was there. When we turn on the light the furnishings of the room come into view...

In truth the revelation of the hidden is exposing what the room stands for.

A table is not a derivative from the person, it is a revelation of the human soul.

Is sight essential or a mechanical process? Sight and wisdom are soul qualities that retain a quality of the original essence.

It's just that the infinity of the original essence is reduced to allow for specific sight and wisdom...

Page 58 [of the pamphlet] last line of the page – line starts: 'ha-ohr'. (P45 in the book)

The Rebbe is saying that even after the 2nd tzimtzum where the sphirot become functional, they are nevertheless part of the same intent. This is revelation of the hidden.

Why are the sphirot above hidden? Not because they were lacking, but due to the infinite light that precluded their revelation.

Ohr/light means the impact of the essence.

A talent is a soul quality. You can learn technique, but not talent. Talent comes from within, not due to exposure to the world.

To reveal qualities the infinite [ohr ein sof] element must be removed.

We can understand how the line/kav of sphirot stand for revelation of concealment.

Beneath surface reality - below the level of your direct interaction exist another deeper reality.

This is the element of name, which indicates presence even in absence.

This is also the element of ohr/light.


As long as the light is present – as long as there is cognition that the sphirot are representative of the essence, they cannot be properly identified individually.

Page 58 [of the pamphlet] last quarter of the page – line starts: 'ha-chochmah'. (P45 in the book)

When a man speaks, he may stumble. But thoughts are smooth. Thought is more intricately connected to the source.

The sphirot are blended together, but not confused. They each sense the infinite light they represent. At this level they are still not ready for the world.

That's why there is a second contraction/tzimtzum.

So that each sphirah can surface individually.

And chochmah/wisdom comes first – the first sphirah to surface.

It is first since it is a total representative of what is shown to it.

It is the bridge between infinity and world. How so? Because it recognizes infinity [ohr ein sof], but from an outside view...


Build something absent chochmah and you have a confused world!

Binah looks to chochmah and builds. Binah as reflected in the heart is the basis for building.

Reality: we understand this stuff, 'cos it exists in our nefesh/soul. Where? A table is an external item, yet it is unified with your psyche/spirit.

Dignity is not assured by the human being. God lends dignity to man.

We are discussing how above there are 2 contractions.

The first conceals the infinite light.

The lowest aspect of the light remains – this is the projection/hasharah - of how things will be without infinity...


This is the real contraction.

The second contraction is the reduction of the light exclusively [not the total concealment]. It is not a tzimtzum to allow the sphirot to exist [which was accomplished by the first contraction], but to allow them to surface.

We are describing the effect of the tzimtzum/contraction. The infinite light is contracted, but it remains. Even science is at a loss as to why matter cannot be destroyed. It is a phenomenon that indicates the infinity from which it comes. The root of matter is God's will.


The removal of the overtly infinite element allows for definition and world to surface.

The first thing to surface after the tzimtzum is the first of the 10 sphirot which is the element of chochmah/wisdom.

Chochmah is first because it is completely self nullifying. It speaks of the truth and its origin, and not of its own experience. It represents the truth that precedes the tzimtzum.

In the sphirah of binah it becomes 'my knowledge' – convincing to the person rather than just, 'I see it'.

Chochmah is the bridge. It joins the infinity to the finite world...

Avraham walked around the world asking, “Where is the Master of this world?” Why? He was not satisfied with the mountains and rivers. He was not interested in his own experience. He was looking for truth. The house is beautiful, but I want the master! This is chochmah/wisdom.”

Page 58 [of the pamphlet] 2nd line of the page – line starts: 'nisborer le-il'. (P44 in the book)

The original light was beyond the scope of the world. There was not obstruction to this light. So it was concealed so that the world could exist.

This original light was concealed into the sun. the light of the sun creates 'day'. It has an infinite element, without defying worldliness.

The light was concealed and there was room for a 'projection' of what would become the world.


This is malchus/kingship. This is the king's effect on his surrounding – with the full impact of his truth, but in a space and time paradigm. This is the lowest element of the infinite light (ohr ein sof).

The first thing to surface after the contraction of the light, is chochmah/wisdom. What is chochmah and why is it the first to surface? Is it due to its brazeness?! No. it is due to its bitul. It has the least amount of 'worldliness'. It recognizes only the Source.

Avraham walked around the world asking, “Where is the Master of this world?” Why? He was not satisfied with the mountains and rivers. He was not interested in his own experience. He was looking for truth. The house is beautiful, but I want the master! This is chochmah/wisdom.

Page 57 [of the pamphlet] lower part of the page – line starts: 'nimshach'. (P44 in the book)

The sphira of malchus corresponds to the regel [foot/leg].

Thus malchus establishes 'place'.

The tzimtzum allows for the creation of world. The world cannot be created within the infinity [ohr ein sof].

The definition of world is that things exist within their own context.

For things to exist in the worldly reality, the human/Godly reality has to be [to a certain extent] concealed.


Due to the tzimtzum the infinite light is hidden.

Malchus is a presence that does not justify itself. It cannot be eliminated. 'This is the way it is'. This is a king. A king doesn't allow for limits.

Malchus remains after the tzimtzum and chochmah/wisdom is the first thing to surface....
