Rabbi Shlomo Aviner points out that today's verse represents a tremendous sanctification of God’s Name. Though King Solomon is the wealthiest, most powerful king of the time, this is not why he is sought out by the entire world. All humanity wishes to be in his presence because of the great wisdom that God has given him. This shows that the kingdom of Israel is unlike all other kingdoms; it is a holy kingdom. When Jewish leaders represent the highest levels of ethics and wisdom, they sanctify God’s name among all the inhabitants of the world. One of the most important traits of a Jewish leader is a thorough knowledge of God's teachings in the Bible. With eTeacher, you can learn not only to read, but to understand the depth of meaning behind each and every verse throughout the Hebrew Bible.
The prayers said each and every day by Jews all over the world accumulate in God's books, steadily earning merit and guaranteeing a closeness with the Creator of the world. Coming to the Western Wall raises those prayers even higher and ensures a spiritual rejuvenation with each word spoken.
