Duties of the Heart!

In the last few days left of the 10 days of repentance, a very worthwhile book to begin working through is "Duties of the Heart". In particular, to assist in preparing for Yom Kippur, the chapter of Cheshbon HaNefesh (an accounting of the soul) is recommended.

If you follow the recommendations provided in Dvar BeIto, you can go through each subsection of the chapter on Cheshbon HaNefesh daily, covering the chapter each month. Thus by this time next year, you will be better prepared for Yom Kippur.

The book "Duties of the Heart" is a classic that anyone serious about working on themselves, their relationship with G-d and appropriate thought and emotions of a Jew should work through constantly and continuously. This edition provides the Hebrew on the one side and English Translation on the other.

The book is available in our Affiliate Store: Shopping for Goodness. Please do browse the store as there are other very worthwhile books and items you might enjoy, either for yourself or as gifts for others, during this important time.

Remember, if you like the book but are not ready to purchase it, please think of those who would love to engage in serious learning but can not afford the book. You can make a contribution even of $1 or $2 or $5 towards helping another Jew, right here. Please indicate whether you want it to go towards the Chatan and Kallah Package, thus contributing towards the very needed library of a new couple or towards a Torah Scholar who does not have the means to purchase the books he requires.

If you would like to begin a regular learning schedule and require some guidance or assistance, please be in touch with Rabbi Shear for guidance, to set up a learning program or to become a part of our Yeshiva.
