Short Vort:  How Can I Get Them to Listen? 
Under any circumstance, it's challenging to pause and truly listen.  Just imagine the experience of a slave. 

The Torah describes how Moshe was unable to communicate his message of redemption to the Jewish nation because they suffered from  "shortness of breath" (Exodus 6:10).  They were overwhelmed from all sides and simply couldn't  process the information.

The Ralbag (1288-1344)
, in a novel interpretation, attributes the term "shortness of breath" as referring to Moshe not the people.   After suffering humiliating setbacks in his efforts, Moshe's "breath" lost its fervour.   As a result, the nation failed to listen. To inspire others, passion is a prerequisite.

Twice each day in our Shema we declare: "Let these words... be upon your hearts and teach them to your children" (Deut. 6:6). The Alshich (1508-1593
comments that the only way to perpetuate values is to first place them "on your heart."   Being passionate, and showing that you sincerely care, is the only way to get anyone to truly listen.

Rabbi Daniel Green
