לך לך מארצך.....Living with the times

Today's Hayom Yom:

From a sicha of my father, after the conclusion of Shabbat Lech L'cha 5651 (1890): In the early years of his leadership the Alter Rebbe declared publicly, "One must live with the time." From his brother, R. Yehuda Leib, the elder chassidim discovered that the Rebbe meant one must live with the sedra of the week and the particular parsha of the day. One should not only learn the weekly parsha every day, but live with it.

OK FINE. I'LL LEAVE THE LAND OF MY BIRTHPLACE AND OF MY FATHER AND GO TO THE LAND OF ISRAEL.
