"Laasok B'divrei Torah" is the blessing that Jews recite before fulfilling the mitzvah of studying Torah. The words literally mean, "to busy oneself with words of Torah." Colloquially, the blessing for the study of Torah asks us "to make Torah our business." Because the Torah is a rich, generous, complicated, and multifaceted text, perpetual study and engagement is the only way that we can authentically live a life rooted in the teachings of Torah.
In addition to the traditional words of the blessing for the study of Torah you'll hear English lyrics that elaborate on the theme of living our Jewish values. Lastly, you'll hear an additional line of Hebrew: Ki ner mitzvah, v'Torah or (the mitzvot are a candle and the Torah is light).
I hope you find this melody sweet and illuminating. You can listen to it wherever you stream music and download it from CD Baby.
