SIDRA-SAVO THE CONNECTION BETWEEN SAVO AND CHAI ELUL
Prof. William Nicholls, distinguished retired head of UBC's R^ligibus; Studies department will deliver a 12-part lecture series on the History of Anti-Semitism begin-: ning Tuesday, Sept. 19, 7:30 to 9 at the Je\yish Community Centre under auspices of the Institute of Adult Jewish Studies. /
Prof. Nicholls' expertise in the; history of Christian-v., Jewish relations will be directed at analyzing the role of the church and Christian community in Anti-Semitism from ancient times to the anti-Semitic Anti-Zionist philosophies of today.

The eighteenth day of Elul, or CliaiElul, marks the birth-date of both the Ba/al Shem ToVf founder of the Chassidic movement, as well as the Alter RebbCj founder of -. Chabad Chassidism. This day^invaria-bly falls either on,lor in close proximity to, the^Shabbos duringvwhich;the Tpi^ah p(M> tion of SiffwJs read., r
AH Jewish festivals and auspicious-occasionsi^^ oh the Jewishvcalendar in some way are alluded to in the Torah portions that are read during the week; when they- occur. Understandably, Clifff Elui is thus alluded to in the Torah portion of Sam Where in this -portion can one find this connection?
The portion of Savo begins
by relating the laws of i?/i(:tf-
rim, the First Fruits that the.
Jews were obligated to bring
immediately upon**coming to,
ilte landtimtG'dyow L^rdis
giving you as a fieritage,
occupying and setiUrig it r Our Rabbis note that the
qualification "occupying and settling lY*'— mentioned at the conclusion of the verse — comes to teach us that the obligation of ili^iMTntdidnot begin until after the fourteen years during which time Eretz Yisrael was conquered and divided among the tribes.
The verse is so modified for the following reason:jThe, true ineaningj^of /fco*^^ land" IS that of coming into it entirely.
This is: in keeping with the saying of our Sages: "A partial entry is not considered an entry at all." The word "coming" itself therefore V means after '^occupying and settling it," for only then were the Jews considered as.having truly entered the land.
This, then, is the connection between Savo and ChaiElul, the birthdate of the ty(o great Chassidic founders:
Chassidus is unique in its [ ability to so rouse' the spirit and mind and heart of a J(?w so that his service of Torah and mitzyps is in a manner of "Savo" — immersing himself entirely within this service, so tht every fibre of his Jbeing is suffused intrinsically and essentially with- an internal spiritual service.
The importance of this manner of service will be understood by explaining the general difference between man's intrinsic and extrinsic states of being: intrinsic refer-^ ihg to man as he exists in rela-
tion to himself and extrinsic refering to man as he exists relative, to others.
In terms of man's spiritual sejrvice this means the follow^ ing::.When a person, does something in ain external and extrinsic manner, he does not clothe Mmself in that which he is doing with his whole essence and being;-he and the thing that, he is xloing therefore remain two distinct and separate entities. : . V vWjien, however, a person rdoes.something with his 4nti;insic being and innermc^t sejf> the totality of liis [ bcfing immerses itself in that wMch he is doing, for in rela-tipn to man's innermost: core there exists nothing else outr .sidepfhinise% : .
ThuSt^ena person acts in this nmnncr then even ja^ ,cific, seemingly ex.ternal, action^is ttedfj^^andvUiiU^ with his innermost sclf;-^^ much so that he^and thelspi:: cific act are united intp one ,:Whple.■ :
< Herein lies that which is unique about the revelation of Chassidus; Chassidus, as part of the; inner aspect of Torah known as *'the soul of Torah^" reveals the Jew's quintessential vitalizing life force in all iaspects of Xorah and iwi/zvos, and the unique quality of this life-force is that it totally uni-. : tes with that which it enlivens.
For the quality, of life^f orce is such that It does not add any new details to that which it vitalizes — a liye body possesses no more parts than a dead body. Actuial lifie-force is thusnot a separate entity from that which it energizes, rather it is the soul of the enlivened body, and because of it each and every aspect of the body is a living entity.
The reason why this is so is that "life" is the soul and innermost e^ssence of the pei> son and as explained earlier that wjiichis part son's innermost core.becpmes wholly one with the object with which it unites. Thus, a place wherein life force arrives -- thC: body — is entirely suffused and permeated by it

To all who share our great sbr-roAV, it m^ than you
can i^ver kiio^
Our jgratitude and special appreciation to Rabbi M: Feuerstein for
the entire body is wholly alive and entirely united with the:
souj.--_^y':. :i Exactly so is the effect o(' Chassidus on Tprah>arid mitzyqs: It is possible for a Jew to study Torah aiidi per-^ form mitzvos in a niahner whereby he and the Torah ancj mitzvos reniaiii two separate entities. Chassidus, however, enables every Jew to reveal the innermpst aspbct of his vitalizing Hfeforee — the holy Jewish sbul^ ^nd in rclatipri t that ieyef^ the quaH^ of 5aVo-^ each and every Jew is truly one with all of Torah and mitzvos. .1
