Welcome to the Nishma Insight Discussion Forum blog.

The NISHMA INSIGHT is our popular dvar Torah, distributed almost every week by e-mail, that touches upon an important concept in the Parsha, theme in a holiday or event in contemporary society.

Often, readers respond, via e-mail, with comments that initiate a further dialogue. Through this Discussion Forum, we now wish to open this dialogue to others. If you have a comment on the INSIGHT, we invite you place to your comments here; then we invite everyone to join the discussion.

(If you are not receiving the NISHMA INSIGHT, we invite you join our mailing/e-mail list through completing our sign-up form available at our website.)

Insight 5778-43: This World

For Ki Tavo
Not yet available on the Nishma website

The presentation in the Insight is not intended to explain how we are able to perceive the Divine cause-and-effect in response to our actions. This is still a challenge beyond our understanding. What the brachot and klallot do inform us, though, is that we are to absolutely perceive this Divine cause-and-effect within our lives and to see God in all that occurs to us, specifically in response to our behaviour. In this manner, we clearly see life differently. We may not know the specifics of why what occurs to us does occur to us but recognizing this involvement of the Divine in our lives is of great significance. We are always to see the involvement of God in our lives and learn from this to the extent that we can.
