Living the words of Torah


We have been learning about the blessings of Birchot haTorah, the blessings recited upon Torah study.

The first blessing, as Ashkenazic communities word it, thanks Gd for instructing us "La'asok b'divrei Torah," "to involve ourselves in the words of Torah." Various commentators have explained that wording to refer to more than just studying the words of Torah, but also living those words even when we are not directly involved in their study.

(Mishneh Berurah 47:9)

Have a great day,
