Kitzur Tefilat Amecha #5

[adapted by Rabbi Shmuel Jablon from Rav Aviner's three-volume commentary on the siddur "Tefilat Amecha"]

The Birkot Ha-Torah end saying Hashem is the One "Who gives the Torah." The Taz and others note that this in the present tense. It’s not only that Hashem gave us the Torah back at Har Sinai. He gives it us every day. He gives it to us when we learn it. He gives it to us when we apply it to our own lives. He gives it to us when we teach it to others. And so we bless Him for this great gift, and then say some selections from the Torah itself.
