Birkas Avos Audio Shiur - Part II - Reb Yerachmiel - Deveikus Bombshell

CLICK HERE to download the wav file of the audio of Sunday night's shiur by Reb Yerachmiel, from the Baltimore Community Kollel Rav Pincus Chaburah, which represents Part II of what will, be'ezras Hashem, be a multi-part-series on the first bracha of Shemoneh Esrei- "Avos" (just in time for the corresponding parshios ha'shavuah). As has been his theme in recent months, the thrust of this week's shiur was not simply to explain and understand the words we say, but on internalizing the equally important and ever-more elusive, additional requirement of Shemoneh Esrei: awareness that we are standing before the Divine Presence of Hashem. Warning: Contains a discussion of the (soon-to-be-famous) "Biggest Chiddush That No One Knows".

This shiur was even better than the last one! Reb Yerchmiel's eitza to concentrate on the word "ATAH", "YOU, Hashem" which we repeat over and over again in Shemoneh Esrei, has, at least over the past few days, increased not only my kavanah during Shemoneh Esrei, but my awareness of standing before Hashem. It's been a whole different davening, k'ain ayin harah.
