[The Rebbe Shlita began by reciting the priestly blessings. He continued:]
May G-d bless each and every one of you together with the totality of the Jewish people in all that you need in both material and spiritual matters. Included in these blessings are all the points mentioned in the blessing recited after the Minchah prayers.
In addition, I would like to convey a special blessing intended for yeshivah students, in general, and, in particular, for the students of Tomchei Temimim. The holy mission granted to each of you is to be a "sign to the public," "candles to shine forth," to illuminate the world with the study of Torah, both Nigleh, the revealed aspects of Torah law, and Pnimiyus HaTorah, Torah's mystical secrets. This includes spreading the Torah and the wellsprings of Chassidus until they are brought "outward."
The study of Torah, your essential mission, will bring about blessing in all matters. The Talmud (Avodah Zorah 19b) states: "Whoever studies Torah, his possessions are blessed." The Previous Rebbe notes that our sages used the word "possessions" in the plural form, alluding to both spiritual and material possessions.
This mission is intrinsically connected to Yom Kippur, the day on which the second tablets were given and is further emphasized this year when Yom Kippur falls on Shabbos, the day of the week on which the first tablets were given.
Shabbos also emphasizes the quality of pleasure as Yeshayahu 58:13 states: "And you shall call the Shabbos 'a delight.'" Similarly, the Talmud speaks about experiencing pleasure on the Shabbos. Pleasure is also related to Torah.
The above is further emphasized by the portion of the week: V'Zos HaBerachah, "and this is the blessing," implying that the blessings will be so apparent that we can point our fingers at them and say: "This is the blessing."
May this bring about manifold blessings, including the ultimate blessing, the end to the exile, when we will proceed, with dances of joy to greet Moshiach in the Holy Land and in Yerushalayim, the holy city, speedily in our days.
