Shema-Mishpatim-The Protection of Awe Print E-mail
Written by Machberes Avodas Hashem   

Prayer-Shemah-Parsha--Kavanah-iPray-iLove-MishpatimI feel it incumbent as a command and a duty to warn all transgressors with a great and awesome warning, so long as the fear of God still touches their hearts. Listen and your souls will live. “And in all of these things that I have said to you, you shall take heed (Exodus 23:13),” for these are the same old words uttered by the mouth of the saintly Rabbi Menachem Mendel, who wrote to you in a similar vein and more. For one needs special urging in your land, which is corrupted with coarseness, and therefore I urge you to be less concerned with esoteric intellectual matters, because a cloud hides true mystical knowledge, and intellectualism may be a cause for extinguishing the candle, heaven forbid. (Rabbi Avraham Katz of Kalisk, Iggerot Ba'al haTanya, #59)

 

“Enlighten our eyes in Your Torah, attach our hearts to Your commandments, and unify our hearts to love and fear Your Name, so that we may not feel inner shame nor be humiliated, nor stumble for all eternity (Morning Blessings of Shema).”

We pray that God protect us in our learning so that we do not become confused by mystical matters nor misdirected by too much intellectualism.

We pray that God imbue us with awe of Him that will protect the integrity of our Torah study.
