V'hayu hadevarim ha' levavecha. And these words shall be...upon your heart. Deuteronomy 6:6 Have you ever wondered which words? There are approximately 600,000 words in the Torah, but which are the words we shall place upon our heart? Please join Sally for a conversation about the practice of Mussar: one of the many paths of our Torah that provides focus on certain words to hold close to our hearts.
