Reflecting on our out-of-routine time and experiences, whether staycationing, driving, hiking or flying. A powerful framework for thinking about experiences and encounters that aren't obviously spiritual, and how "two-step" thinking about purpose can convert the neutral and the mundane into avodas Hashem. Rambam in 5th chapter of Shemona Perakim (introduction to Pirkei Avos) develops בכל דרכיך דעהו (found as well in Hilchos De'os perek 3 and Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 231) - 3-4 categories for Torah u-Madda in various fields of study (in addition to Torah as well as biology and chemistry - math and physics; literature; art and beauty) involving various avodas Hashem purposes (mental sharpness; value of role models, both positive and negative; rehabilitative value of experiencing art and beauty). These categories can guide our growth through time away and throughout our time on this planet.
Learning on the Marcos and Adina Katz YUTorah site is sponsored today by the Goldberg and Mernick families to mark the yahrzeit of Samuel M. Goldberg, R’ Shmuel Meir ben R’ Eliyahu HaCohen z”l
