Session 17: "Malbish Arumim" - מלביש ערומים

Clothing serves both to protect the body from the elements, and to dignify and glorify the body ("לכבוד ולתפארת"). In these two ways, clothing also serves as our tool for achieving our goals of emulating Hashem even post-Eden. Follow the trail of clothing in controlling the Yetzer Hara — the garments that God provided to Adam and Chava; passing through Nimrod, Esav and Yaakov; picked up again by Yosef / Mrs. Potifar and Yehuda / Tamar; and back via the Meraglim (spies) — and you will have a whole new depth of meaning in your heart when you thank Hashem for his chessed of clothing the naked — מלביש ערומים.
