The lectures presented here were recorded with live audience participation and many of the questions and comments from the auditorium are included in the videos. The full Shema consists of Deuteronomy 6:4–9, 11:13–21, and Numbers 15:37–41. Its words communicate an entire set of deeply spiritual beliefs and practices.

Part 1 of this teaching focused primarily on spiritual ideas encapsulated in Deuteronomy 6:4–9. This Part II transitions into the second and third paragraphs of the Shema (Deut 11:13–21, and Num 15:37–41). The teaching is over 2 hours long, so for convenience's sake, Part II was broken up into shorter segments.
