Morning Blessings-Kav haYashar-Waking Up

The 15th of Adar is the Yahrtzeit of Rav Zvi Hirsch (ben Aharon Shmuel) Kaidanover of Vilna and Frankfurt (1712). The son of the Birkas Shmuel, he himself was the author of Kav Hayashar, a sefer which Reb Elimelech of Lizensk learned through 102 times. In the morning be sure to have ritually washed your hands, and then, before leaving your house, put your hands on the mezuzah and meditate on how God is the owner of the house and that we are all just transient visitors. Think of the name of God Sh-add-ai, symbolized by the Shin on the mezuzah, and afterwards say three times, “God will guard my going out and my coming in, for life and for peace, from now and forever.” Then say, “Know Him in all your ways.” (Kav haYashar, Chapter 55)
