Live It. Teach It.

A few words from a really wise man named Moses. Not only does he encourage all of us to live out our faith, but just as important, he urges us to teach it tour children.

“Listen, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD alone. And you must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength. And you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands that I am giving you today. Repeat them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up. Tie them to your hands and wear them on your forehead as reminders. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. (Deuteronomy 6:4-9 NLT)

  1. One of my favorite prayers. This past weekend marked the 34th anniversary of my Bat Mitzvah. Based on the Hebrew calendar, the Torah portion then as it was this weekend was Genesis – in the beginning.

    The prayer mentioned above is an integral part of the Sabbath service — calling to mind the importance of daily prayer, the placing of Tefillin (place them upon your hands and upon your forehead) and the mezzuzah (bind them as a sign upon your door).

    The commandments (613 in all) are to be observed on a daily basis.

    Thank you sharing these wise words.
