A Changing World: Cubicle Security

Yesterday I attended emergency escape mask training. Along with others in my building, I now have a mask for use, if for some reason I need it.

I am very cognizant of the fact that when it is my time, it is my time. While a mask may certainly help save my life, I am also aware of the words of King David who said in Tehillim 127:1, "If Hashem will not guard the city, in vain is the watchman vigilant."

I am storing my new mask on a shelf in my cubicle alongside two seforim, a Tanach and Degel Machaneh Ephraim. Degel Machaneh Ephraim contains a haskama (approbation) of the Chozeh of Lublin that promises protection and assistance to anyone who delves deeply and learns the words of this sefer.

G-d willing, through learning the pages of this sefer I will be zoche never to need this mask.
