Hear, O Israel, the L‑rd is our G‑d,
the L‑rd is One.

Blessed be the name of the glory
of His kingdom forever and ever.

You shall love the L‑rd your G‑d
with all your heart, with all your soul
and with all your might.
And these words
which I command you today shall be
on your heart. You shall teach them
thoroughly to your children,
and you shall speak of them
when you sit in your house
and when you walk on the road,
when you lie down and
when you rise up.
You shall bind them
as a sign upon your arm,
and they shall be for a reminder
between your eyes.
And you shall write them
upon the doorposts of your house
and upon your gates.

Tefillin The declaration of faith in the Shema is universal. However, many commandments in the Torah apply to specific people, under specific circumstances. Tefillin are obligatory for men, and it is widely accepted that women do not wear Tefillin, for several reasons. You can read about them at this link. Reply

shema I'm learning the prayers. In reading the translation of the Shema, Gd tells us we should be putting on teffilin? Is the Shema and and most or all prayers only meant for men? Or, is teffilin meant for every Jew, male or female? Reply

Conradulations to Lyle The Shema very succinctly informs and reminds the Jewish people that 'the L-rd is our G-d' and that 'G-d is One'.

By reciting the Shema Yizrael and V'ahavta twice a day, you are internalizing the very important concept noted above. Reply

I am reciting the Shema Yizrael and V'ahavta I am reciting the Shema Yizrael and V'ahavta twice a day - once in the morning and once at night before I go to bed. I have learned that the Shema is the most important Jewish prayer. Reply
