By: Rabbi Moshe Heinemann In these stormy times, many individuals have set up security system in their homes which give them a feeling of protection.

Our feeling of protection must come from the acknowledgment that we have a guard in heaven, instead than relying totally on some mechanical device, devised by man. The Ribbono Shel Olam monitors our homes if we do His will. The mezuzah affixed to our doorpost is our defense.
