Heart of stone Thank you Rabbi once more for this great insight, I particularly like the message of the week.

The video mentions the danger of narcissism and that one shouldn't have a heart of stone, i.ex. always be able to let Him into one's heart. However, this seems to contradict what we read in earlier Parashot on G-d hardening Pharao's heart. It is He who puts thoughts in our minds, so why would He harden our hearts in times we need to be closer to Him? Reply
