The Significance of Judah
29 December, 2020
This discourse was taught by the Rebbe on Shabbat Vayechi in December 1969. It focuses on the blessing to Judah, the ancestor of the Davidic Kings: Judah, you, your brothers will submit to you, and your hand will be on the neck of your enemy (Gen.49:8). The discourse reveals the meaning in each word (such as the unexpected ‘you’ after Judah’s name) as a powerful message to each individual about how their personal self-restraint can affect the inner spiritual dimension of the universe.
