Methods to Remember and Internalize Torah


Beit Din Eretz Hemda - Gazit

Tamuz 21 5780
Gemara: Samech and ayin teach to make simanim (pneumonics) for Torah and acquire it.

Ein Ayah: You should always engrave on your heart the great value of acquiring Torah as part of your heart and mind. Use whatever tricks you can to permanently acquire the Torah within you. Then, the Torah will leave an impression on the essence of your life.

It is good but insufficient to spend a lot of time reviewing that which you learned. You should spend energy arriving at tricks to remember the Torah learned, out of a palpable fear that normal efforts will not prevent you from forgetting. When you have these great efforts and great fear of forgetting, because you are aware of Torah’s great sanctity, you will acquire Torah and make it yours forever and part of your essence, thus making you strong and lofty.
