Freedom Of Speech

In this weeks Parsha (Tora portion), BaHar (on the Mountain - of Sinai). God commands us that on the 50th year we must call a Jubilee - Yoavail. The fields with all their produce are to be "hefker" free for all. All property in Israel must be returned to it's original owner. All Hebrew slaves must be freed.

Rabbi Nachman, in Likutay Moharan, revealed that the word "Yoavail" is the acronym: Vayaitzy Yitzchok LuSuach BaSude - And Isaac went out to converse (hisbodidus) in the field (and shortly thereafter he met his wife, our mother the matriarch Rivka).

For a person to gain or regain his freedom he must get into the practice of unburdening himself on God, to converse freely and openly with the Holy Merciful One God, even as one would with a close and intimate friend.

The word "Yoavail" actually means a horn - shofar, which Rabbi Nachman revealed is the expression of the song that is single, double, triple, quadruple. This is the song of freedom, emancipation, liberty: Na Nach Nachma Nachman MeUman!
