The Shema and It’s Blessings

Simply put, as every traditional Jew knows from childhood, the mitzvah to recite the “Sh’ma Yisroel” involves reading out a number of Torah verses twice daily that assert that G-d is the only Deity (Deuteronomy 6:4), that there’s a sure reward due those who serve Him (Deuteronomy 6:5-9, 11:13- 21), and that underscore the fact of our having been freed from slavery in Egypt (Numbers 15:37-41). But as we’ll soon see, there’s far more to this mitzvah than that.
