Pesukei d’Zimrah-Shabbat HaGadol-Holy Speech

The 4th of Nisan is the Yahrtzeit of Rav Avraham Yehoshua Heschel of Mezhibuzh-Tanipol (1943). In the Haftarah of Shabbat HaGadol– we read, “Then they who feared God spoke one with another (Malach 3:16).” When two Tzaddikim come together, this coming together is in itself speech, even though they utter no word.


When we join with the Creation, both the Upper and Lower Worlds in singing God’s praises in Pesukei d’Zimrah, we achieve this state of “Speech Without Words,” which prepares us to join with the Highest Angels in singing the Kedusha of the Blessings of Shema.
