Even Without Understanding

Sanctify us on Hoshana Rabbah and Simchas Torah which correspond to the paradigms of speech without da'as and speech imbued with da'as. Grant us the privilege to study Your holy Torah constantly. Even when we fail to understand the words of Your Torah clearly and correctly, may we nevertheless exert ourselves to read them and keep studying, even without understanding. In Your mercy, accept this effort as well and rejoice in our words of Torah, even when they lack comprehension.

(Likutey Tefillos 1, 93)

This is why we need more teachers who can explain the Torah that people need to learn, and explain it well: both clearly and poetically at once.
