Rabbeinu's Last Torah (Likutei Moharan 2:8): SHIR CHADASH

It was Rabbeinu's last Rosh Hashana of his life - the only Rosh Hashana he would ever spend in his lifetime in Uman. He became gravely ill over Rosh Hashana. It was on the second night of Rosh Hashana, despite his difficult illness that he said his very last Torah, which he recited over a period of a few hours. But little did anyone know then (besides Rabbeinu), that this Torah which speaks of the Shir Chadash, would be the prediction of the Shir Chadash that would change the lives of thousands of Jews.

If it wouldn't be the lateness of the hour, I would more or less translate the section in this Torah about the Shir Chadash. But briefly, as mentioned in the Zohar, (I will be throwing in thoughts of my own too, just learn the original source to get the true meaning of Rabbeinu's Torah) this is Hashem's name like this Y, YK, YKV, YKVK which is in Gematriya 72, the same number as it equals Chesed - as in "Olam Chesed Yibane" - the world was built with KINDNESS. This is the 10th Shir/Shira of the 10 Shiros, as formulated in 10 letters, and as we know, the world was created with Hashem's 10 statements. This is all very nice, but we can't sing Hashem's name as it is - it is in fact forbidden to pronounce this very name. So, when it started with Na Nach Nachma Nachman (MeUman), we see the ultimate fulfillment of this as stated in the Zohar.

Now, the very first Shir/Shira is the Shiras Hayam, corresponding to which is the first "Noon" in Na Nach Nachma Nachman - the letter of this month of Cheshvan. Now the very first word of the section in the Torah of Shiras Hayam is "Az" which is in Gematriya 8, like Cheshvan being the 8th month counting from Nissan. (It's interesting to note that Az is the Roshei Taivos of An'im Zemiros that is sung as the end of the Shabbos morning prayers - and is also the name of a Sefer published by Shir Chadash by Rabbi Bezenson Shlita which is Divrei Torah from Likutei Halachos on the Parsha) The very first word of the actual song that Moshe & Bnei Yisrael sang is "Ashira" - I will sing. This is also the very first word of the Tefilla for the Tikkun HaKelali (which is customarily recited after the Tikkun HaKelali) composed by Rebbe Nosson who was born on Shabbos Parshas Beshalach/Shabbos Shira when we read the Shiras Hayam that begins with the word "Ashira".

Now, we will be showing Roshei Teivos - the letters of words that are the first letters of other words - this will absolutely amaze you!

Ashira - Alef Shin Yud Reish Hei - these letters begin with the following words:
אומן שופר ירושלים ראש השנה

Shir/Shira - Shin Yud Reish (Hei)
שופר יום-טוב ראש השנה
שבת יום-טוב ראש השנה
On this, we can have an explanation. In the beginning of the 4th Perek of Maseches Rosh Hashana, it says "On the Yom-Tov of Rosh Hashana when it falls out on Shabbos, they blew the Shofar in the Beis HaMikdash, but not in the rest of the country". Strange - why does the Mishna call R.H. with the "Yom Tov of R.H." instead of just R.H? Well first of all, the Likutei Halachos explains that if R.H. falls out on Shabbos, we don't need to blow Shofar, because we get the same spiritual energy from Shabbos. And both words start with a Shin, so it's the same deal for Shir/Shira having the Roshei Taivos being always applicable on R.H. But here are amazing Gematrios that will show that Shofar & Rosh Hashana have EVERYTHING to do with Yerushalayim & the Beis HaMikdash. You see Shofar & Yerushalayim (when not spelled with a 2nd Yud as it is in most places in Nach where it is spelled as such) have the same Gematriya (586) & Rosh Hashana & Beis HaMikdash have the same Gematriya (861)!
In the pamphlet "Uman B'Yeushalayim" in Saba's teachings, in the Posuk of "Mizmor Shir L'Yom HaShabbos" the words Shir L'Yom have the same letters as Yerushalayim (when spelled with a 2nd Yud). As quoted "The last Shir of the Geula that will bring B'nei Yisrael to Eretz Yisrael and to Yerushalayim in anticipation of the 7th millenium, the big Shabbos is Na Nach Nachma Nachman MeUman and he is now in Yerushalayim."
Having this in mind, the 10th & last of the Pirkei Tehillim in Tikun HaKlali is the last Perek in Tehillim - Chapter 150, where it mentions the phrase "Haleluhu B'Teika Shofar". This is the only full Perek of Tehillim that we say in Shemoneh Esrei - particularly in the Shofaros section of the Mussaf of R.H., and as indicated earlier by correlating the 10 Shiros corresponding to the 10 letters in Na Nach Nachma Nachman, Shofar - in the 1oth & last of the 10 chapters of Tikun HaKlali that we say especially in the Rosh HaShana Mussaf, has the same Gematriya as Yerushalayim. And hence, MeUman B'Yerushalayim is bringing the first Shir as Uman (in Hebrew is begins with Alef) has the same first letter as Ashira, the first word sung in the first Shir - to the last Shir - where the 10th letter of the 10th Shir, as corresponding to the 10th Tikun Klali Perek which mentions the Shofar, corresponds to Yerushalayim!

In light of the above, may we merit that Rabbeinu be transfered from Uman to Yerushalayim in his rightful spot on Har Tziyon - Teikef U'Miyad Mamash!

P.S. So why is Rosh Hashana called the "Yom Tov of Rosh Hashana" when we all know that it is a Yom Tov? The key to this is that it relates to "when it falls out on Shabbos". Shabbos as we mentioned before is related to Yerushalayim when as rearranged in the words Shir L'Yom. The Geula, as associated with the "Big Shabbos" - the 7th millenium, and the Petek HaGeula contains the date of 17 Tamuz. Yom Tov is Day 17 being that Tov is the Gematriya of 17. As I mentioned in an earlier post - have to check the original source - in the future - 17 Tamuz will be the first day of Yom Tov, followed by Chol HaMoed until 9 Av which will be the last day of Yom Tov. As we know, Krias Yam Suf & Shiras HaYam happened on the last day of the Yom Tov of Pesach, the end of Pesach which relates to the future Geula. May we hear the Shofar heralding the arrival of the Geula - Teikef U'Miyad Mamash!

I know the source for the two fast days being Yomim Tovim - but I am talking about something else. I'm talking about one long Chag like Pesach & Succos with Chol HaMoed inbetween. That is, it's not that 17 Tamuz & 9 Av will be like two separate Chagim, but all part of one large Chag which will include today's Bein HaMetzarim (from shimonmatisyahu)
