tikun leil shavuos=ta'aroch lefanei shulchan
I noticed a local shule has printed on its flier with its schedule of shiurim for tikun leil shavuos a quote from the Belzer Rebbe, R’ Shalom, that the roshei teivos of ta’aroch lifanei shulchan is the same as tikun leil shavuos, meaning one can be achieve the same tikunim through eating as though one’s learning – of course, refreshments will be served all night. I am not a chassid, but I am willing to grant that perhaps the Rebbe R’ Sar Shalom could accomplish with his eating cheesecake the same tikkunim I accomplish with my learning. But that I can accomplish with my eating cheesecake the same as with my learning – that I can’t believe!
