Bati Legani - I have come into My Garden
19 January, 2021
The Bati Legani discourse was the last discourse of Rabbi Joseph Isaac Schneersohn (d.1950). It was seen as his last will and testament. Each year his son-in-law and successor Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, the seventh Lubavitcher Rebbe, would expound it. The first year, 1951, the Rebbe gave special attention to chapter one. In 1952, to chapter two, and so on. This year 2021 would be chapter eleven in the fourth cycle. The focus is the determination needed to create a dwelling for the Divine in this world. This determination is in the individual and is derived from that quality in the Divine. The discourse we studied together is from 1981, chapter eleven in the second cycle.
