A Changing World: Cubicle Security

Yesterday I attended emergency escape mask training. Along with others in my building, I now have a mask for use, if for some reason I need it.

I am very cognizant of the fact that when it is my time, it is my time. While a mask may certainly help save my life, I am also aware of the words of King David who said in Tehillim 127:1, "If Hashem will not guard the city, in vain is the watchman vigilant."

I am storing my new mask on a shelf in my cubicle alongside two seforim, a Tanach and Degel Machaneh Ephraim. Degel Machaneh Ephraim contains a haskama (approbation) of the Chozeh of Lublin that promises protection and assistance to anyone who delves deeply and learns the words of this sefer.

G-d willing, through learning the pages of this sefer I will be zoche never to need this mask.

"Purified air comes only through words of Torah. Words of Torah offer protection in general and for each individual in particular."

(Lubavitcher Rebbe)
