Shema, The: (lit. "hear"); the daily declaration of faith, recited in the morning and evening prayers and before retiring for the night

It is through the word – speaking and listening – that we can have an intimate relationship with G‑d as our parent, our partner, our sovereign, the One who loves us and whom we love.
