Love G-d with All Your Heart

Discussions on Prayer, Lesson 37


Love G-d with All Your Heart: Discussions on Prayer, Lesson 37

In the first paragraph of the Shema (v’Ahavta), after submitting to G-d’s sovereignty, we accept the yoke of His commandments. This begins with the instruction to love G-d, which motivates and energizes the performance of mitzvahs. This class also addresses the famous question of how G-d can expect us to love Him on command.
