“Meaning in Mitzvot” – by Rav Asher Meir

[ https://etzion.org.il/en/halakha/studies-halakha/philosophy-halakha/introduction-meaning-mitzvot ]

‘The Complete Series’ comprises 121 Articles!

From the Introduction:

Most of us are conscious that our halakhic obligations are more than a game of “Simon Says” – more than an arbitrary collection of actions meant to test our alertness and prove that we know how to “play the game.”  Every action required by the Torah should have meaning, and depth, for the Jew who performs it, and we on our part should have intention in our mitzva performance – we should mean what we do …
 
… I have taken upon myself to make a thorough study of the sources of our most important practices in the Talmud and the codes, together with explanations of their meaning in selected works of Jewish thought …
 
… The main OBJECT of the explanations is to help the reader CONNECT with the mitzvot – to help create a feeling of direct relevance of the mitzva to one’s experience.  The APPROACH of the work is to present explanations which conform to the detailed performance of the mitzvot.  For example, the explanation of washing the hands in the morning attempts to give meaning not only to the washing of the hands in general, but also to the fact that the washing should be done three times, from a vessel and into a vessel.  The explanation of the priestly blessing per se encompasses also an explanation why this mitzva is performed only on Yom Tov in most Diaspora congregations, but all year round in Israel …
 
… The best characterization of my explanations is that they reflect the way that I personally have put together legal sources, commentary literature and personal experience to connect with the sacred commandments and customs which define Jewish life.  I personally perceive that my explanations are based on the traditional sources, but I cannot claim that I am merely transmitting and translating them …
 
… The shiur is intended for anybody who wants to see “meaning in mitzvot” exemplified.  This mainly includes the average intellectually-curious mitzva-doer, but may also include students of Judaism who recognize that nuts-and-bolts halakha has been neglected as a vital component of a Jewish lifestyle …
