It was a young bochur who inspired me to daven with kavana. I was 13 year old at the beginning of my journey and he had just returned from studying in Eretz Yisroel. I stood a few rows behind and was mesmerized by his sincerity, passion and focus. Until this day he doesn’t know the impact he had on my tefillah.
Hashem loved Avraham Avinu for how he educated his children and yet in the Torah there is no speech and minimal conversation between father and child. Avraham Avinu teaches us that to educate and lead by example and through our actions is far more effective and powerful.
