להפנים
 
With some basic Hebrew you’d know how to say inside, as in I’d rather sit inside – בִּפְנִים (beef-NEEM).
 
Here’s how to say to internalize: לְהַפְנִים (le-hahf-NEEM). For example, הִפְנַמְנוּ אֶת הַמֶּסֶר (heef-NAHM-noo et hah-MEH-sehr) – we’ve internalized the message.
 
 
Today’s “three-weeks” call to action
 
This Shabbat, I’m going to work on להפנים the idea that although I am an individual, I am identical to other human beings in anatomy and in Godly attributes. Through this awareness of the glorious sameness among myself and all humanity, I hope to come to a deeper love for, appreciate of and peace with others around me.
