Are You Listening?

Parshat Vaetchanan (Deuteronomy 3:23 - 7:11)

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/torah_portion/article/are_you_listening_20060804

"Therefore" connects all our fine sentiments and deep wisdom with the reality of the world. "Therefore" binds us to bring our values out of the vague realm of our subjectivity and into the hard objective world of work, family, politics and power. "Therefore" tests all our spiritual aspirations and visions against the limits of our courage, imagination and resolve. "Therefore" makes religion real. Every day, someone confesses, "Rabbi, I'm a deeply spiritual person."
