"T O D A Y ' S D A Y"

Thursday, Kislev 5 5704

"A ladder was standing on the ground." (1).
Prayer is the ladder that connects souls and G-dhood. And although it stands "...on the ground," the start of Davening being no more than acknowledgement, yet "it's top (2) reaches the Heavens" (3) - a state of total Bitul, self-nullification. But one reaches this level through the prior attainment of comprehension and understanding (4) inherent in P'sukei D'zimra, (5) in the B'rachot of Sh'ma and in Sh'ma proper.

Footnotes: (1) Bereishit 28:12, Yaakov's dream.
(2) I.e. the "peak" of Davening, which is the silent
devotional Amida (or Shemona Essrei).
(3) This is the concluding phrase of the verse "A ladder
(4) Of G-dliness.
(5) "Verses of praise," second section of Shacharit.
Siddur pp. 30-42.
