Just Call My Name…

Ohr Hachayim Deuteronomy: Devarim

Just Call My Name…

“… and I’ll be there.” – James Taylor

Knowing the True Name of someone is believed to confer some power by the user of the name upon the entity being named. In some cultures, a person’s true or secret name is a closely guarded treasure that is only shared with ones most intimate circle. The True Name of God was likewise rarely disclosed even during Temple times, and today we have no public knowledge of it. However, in Judaism, God has many names and appellations that we still use to this day and which still may retain some power.
