Aliyah Quote #24: My Eyes and Heart Will Always Be There

R. Chiya and R. Shimon Bar Rebbi were sitting. One said, "One who Davens must look down - 'My eyes and heart will always be there' [in Eretz Yisrael]." The other said, "his eyes should face up - 'We will lift our hearts to our hands.'"

R. Yishmael Bar R. Yosi remarked "My father said, his eyes should be down, and his heart up, to fulfill both verses." (Yevamos 105b)
