Don’t miss an opportunity to recite “Amen” to a blessing as it represents an affirmation that the statement made in the blessing is in fact true.

In this week’s parasha, Kee Tavo, we see that the response of Amen by the Jewish people represents an acknowledgement of their commitment to follow the Torah. This importance and centrality of Torah is highlighted by the sage, Rabbi Elazar Ben Azariah in the 17th Mishna of the third chapter of Pirkei Avot, Ethics of the Fathers with the words; “Where there is no Torah, there is no right conduct.”

To learn more about how good deeds leave a lasting positive imprint upon others, print out both the third and fourth chapters of Ethics of the Fathers this afternoon and join thousands of fellow Jews around the globe who will be enjoying an uplifting experience and inspired discussions this Shabbat.
