Let My People Know

Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz: “The revelation of the Divine Presence.”

Just as the Tabernacle was the locus of the Divine Presence s revelation, where the divine word was spoken from between the two cherubs, so too, a person who engages in Torah study becomes a locus for the revelation of the Divine Presence, which speaks through him (see Torah Or 67b).

When a person designates specific times to study Torah, at least twice a day, once during the day and once at night, God lodges at his residence, so to speak, so that he becomes a host for God.

One within whose humble abode God, the King of kings, chooses to lodge, is overcome with immense joy, gladness, and gratitude.
