We just have to internalize this message!

We all know about the intense meaning of the Shema....but now we have to " live it."

Thank you Charlie for all your inspirational words!!

Where were you when I was in high school....hopefully our kids hear these important & relavent messages!

The word hidden in the Shema.

When the ayin at the end of shema is combined with the dalet at the end of echad, it forms eid, 'witness'. When we say the Shema, we are witnessing the oneness of G-d.

L'shana tova.
