Haftarah: Machar Chodesh: Beyond By on


Ahavat Olam


Someone asked me why we insert; “May You forever not remove Your love from us” in the blessing immediately preceding the evening Shema. The question implies the possibility that God would “remove His love from us”.
I answered that I believe this is not a request as much as a description of the penultimate sentence: “For they are our life and the length of our days and about them we will “meditate” (according to Artscroll) – Edit our lives and actions – (according to The Machberes Avodas Hashem – The Service of God Notebooks – day and night.” We both observe the Mitzvot/Concepts and view the world through the lens of Torah, with the awareness that God’s love will never be removed from us, or His Mitzvot/Concepts and His Torah.
The eternality of God’s love is part of the very essence of the Mitzvot we practice and the Torah we study.
