Internal Tribes, Part 2: Commentaries on the Torah

How Reuven, Shimon, Levi and Yehudah represent four different phases we experience as we go through the order of the morning prayers: 1) Reuven—the first paragraph of Shema, 2) Shimon—the second paragraph of Shema, 3) Levi—the blessings after Shema, and 4) Yehudah—the Amidah prayer. (Based on the discourse "Yehuda Achecha Yoducha 5738.")

My comment in part 1 was answered here; the regality of being at the core Jewish in the face of the gantze velt, our enemies will "respect us"--I just want to be comfortable in my skin as I move in this world. Thank you Rabbi so many others have already said, you are such an integral part of our learning on so many levels. ending much love and appreciation to you and your family. Reply

Seeing and Hearing Thank you for the profound description of the difference between Reuben-seeing and Shimon--hearing and the value of hearing when one learns. I happen to have an eye irritation that necessitates keeping my eyes closed and this is consoling to me and motivating to learn from audios on Torah. Reply
