Shimiras Aynayim

Filed under: Blog Torah — Reb Moshe @ 11:45 pm

I have been trying to visit a holy Rabbi in Tiberias for davening now each week. He is a very holy man whom some say isn’t in this world. One thing I noticed was that when he wanted to reattach himself to Hashem, he would take his tzitzis and touch both his eyes with them. I have found this to be a great tikkun and protection when one feels he has dropped from his madrega or following a negative thought.


  1. who is the Rabbi

  2. The Lubavitcher Rebbe would do this after the bracha for Braruch Shemar (he would touch the tzitzis to his eyes then kiss them). I also do this during Shema before kissing the tzitzis. I do this mainly for incresed kavanah (i.e. the intention of always placing the mitzvos before my eyes, as well in my heart.)
