Amazing You: Have a Heart

Tzivia E. Adler

Thump. Can you feel your heartbeat? After running, can you hear your pulse pounding in your ears? Every heartbeat pumps blood through your body. Hearts are also a symbol of emotions. That’s why we say in Shema, “V’hayu hadevarim ha’eileh … al levavecha” - we are supposed to feel strongly about the mitzvos.

The heart is a muscle the size of your fist. As you grow, so does your heart. It takes your heart only one minute to pump blood around your whole body!

It is in the middle of your chest, between the two lungs. It is on a slant: the top is wider, and points left, the bottom is narrower, and points to the right. The mezuzah on every door is also on a slant, from left to right!
