Knock before you enter!


"'And Gd called to Moshe [from within the Tent of Meeting], and Gd spoke to him' - We see from here that a scholar who lacks sense is worse than a carcass.

"Learn from Moshe, the father of knowledge and father of prophets, who took the Jews out of Egypt, and by whose hand many miracles were performed in Egypt and awesome deeds were performed at the Sea, who ascended to the heavens and brought the Torah down from the heavens, and who involved himself in creating the Mishkan - Even he did not enter within until 'And Gd called to Moshe, and Gd spoke to him.'"

(Midrash, Vayyikra Rabbah 1:15)

Have a great day,
