Elul Reflections: Brokenhearted

Why does Torah teach: you shall put the words of Torah on your heart?  Why not, in your heart?  Because, Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz teaches: each of us, at some time, will be heartbroken.  And when our heart breaks, the words of Torah, resting there, will slip into the crack.  Into our heart.  In this month of Elul, may our broken hearts open to words of wisdom.

L’shanah tovah–Rabbis Kuhn, Maderer, Freedman, Cantor Frankel
