Moses and the Patriarchs Before Him
28 December 2021
24 Tevet (Yahrzeit of Rabbi Shneur Zalman)
This discourse was taught by the Rebbe early in 1965, on Shabbat of Sedra Vaera. This Sedra tells how G-d appeared to the Patriarchs with His Name Sha-dai, and yet He will be revealed in a higher way to Moses, with the Tetragrammaton.
Before beginning the discourse there is a short talk on the nature of the Chassidic discourses taught by Rabbi Shneur Zalman (d.1812) and his successors, the leaders of the Chabad-Lubavitch movement through the generations.
