The Continuing Legacy of Rabbi Harold M. Schulweis (z”l)—A Collection of Reflections for High Holidays 5781

 

Excerpt from Sh’ma Written on My Heart:
The keen-eyed Rabbi of Kotzk, Menachem Mendel,  noted:
‘The verse following the Sh’ma does not say, to set the words “In thy heart,”
but rather ‘Upon thy Heart’”
To teach us that at times the heart is shut.
I must not therefore cease praying,
For the words will lie upon my closed heart, but when my heart opens again
They will descend into its depth…  –Harold M. Schulweis z”l
