Lessons for Tuesday, 15 Nissan, 5771


Positive Commandment 10 (Digest)

The Shema

 

“And you shall talk of them … when you lie down and when you rise up”—Deuteronomy 6:7.

We are commanded to recite the Shema twice daily: morning and night. Women are not obligated in this time-bound mitzvah.

Positive Commandment 5 (Digest)

Prayer

“And you shall serve the L-rd, your G-d”—Exodus 23:25.

We are commanded countless times throughout the Torah to serve G-d. Although this is a general commandment, it does contain a very specific application: prayer, service of the heart as expressed through the mouth.
