Taking life one mitzvah at a time.....
This is an open journal of my step-by-step ever growing commitment to Judaism as a religion, as a culture, as a system of belief. Each day I strive to be a better person, to give, and to example myself as one who follows Torah. I thank Hashem that I have the ability to grow and learn every day. I invite you to partake in this journey both through sharing in my experiences and your own. We can learn from each other as we walk together. Sadly, posts are moderated to filter out antisemitism.
I may discuss Torah. So in case you have not said the blessing before learning Torah:

Blessings Before Learning Torah

The Torah commands us to recite a special blessing over the study of Torah before we study Torah. This is required only once a day, every day. If you have not said these blessings today, please recite them now, before reading the occasional Torah in this journal.

Blessed are You, Hashem our G-d, King of the universe, Who has made us holy through His commandments, and commanded us to actively study Torah.

Please Hashem, our G-d, sweeten the words of Your Torah in our mouths and in the mouths of all Your people Israel. May we and our offspring, and our offspring's offspring, and all the offspring of Your people, the House of Israel, may we all, together, know Your Name and study Your Torah for the sake of fulfilling Your desire. Blessed are You, Hashem, Who teaches Torah to His people Israel.

Blessed are You, Hashem our G-d, King of the universe, Who chose us from all the nations, and gave us the Torah. Blessed are You, Hashem, Giver of the Torah.
