!Short Clips! Blessings

!Short Clip!

Shulchan Aruch, Dinei Birkas haTorah 47:1 – Laws Relating to the Blessings for Torah Study, Part 1

Rabbi Avraham Meyer Zajac – The Rabbi explains why the Alter Rebbe insisted that we be very careful how we properly say the blessings before we start learning Torah. The reason is it was one of the reasons the Jews were driven into exile after the destruction of the 2nd Temple. How does this even make sense? He further says – the source of this is in the Talmud that it is as if Hashem Himself explained it directly to those learning his Torah. Chassidus explains that Torah is G-dliness en-clothed in words. It’s not that we didn’t learn Torah it’s that we didn’t keep it on the front of our mind that we are learning Hashem’s words and connecting with His very essence when we learn Torah.

!Short Clip! – Alter Rebbe Shulchan Aruch – Dressing In the Morning (the Yarmulke)

Rabbi Avraham Zajac – This is a Short Clip video (less than four minutes) – explaining the interesting Halacha about why Jewish men wear a head covering (Yarmulke) at all times and a nice story of its great significance to one of our Sages.

Personal Thoughts – It’s great to learn the sources of why we as Jews do something – learning leads me to more learning and also to action. Shabbat Shalom!
