Studying a parsha of Chumash with Rashi every day (Sunday until Sheini, Monday until Shlishi, etc.), saying Tehillim every day and the entire Tehillim on Shabbat m'varchim - be scrupulous about all of these. It is crucial for you, for your children and your children's children.

Mishnah Torah:

Daf Yomi


Mishna:

Three categories are prohibited for a nazir: impurity, shaving, and grape products. And all grape products combine with one another [to create large enough amount for obligation]. And he is only culpable for eating grapes [totaling] an olive's volume . The original teaching was when he drinks a revi'it(a specific unit of volume) of wine. Rabbi Akiva says: "Even if he soaked his bread in wine and there is enough to add up to an olive's volume, he is culpable."

Tanach

With your great wisdom in your commerce did you increase your wealth, that your heart became haughty with your wealth?

Therefore, so said the Lord God: Because you made your heart like the heart of God...

Your heart became haughty because of your beauty; you destroyed your wisdom with your brightness; I have cast you upon the ground; I have set you before kings to gaze upon you.
(...)
So says the Lord God: When I gather in the house of Israel from the peoples among whom they have been scattered, and I have been sanctified through them in the eyes of the nations, then shall they dwell on their land that I gave to My servant, to Jacob.

Rambam
The one [appointed] to supervise the guards: He is "the officer of the Temple Mount" who would walk around [checking] the Levites [who would guard the Temple] every night. Whenever anyone would sleep at his post, he would strike him with his staff and burn his garment.

The one [appointed] to supervise the singers: Each day, he would chose singers to stand on the duchan to sing melodies. At his command, [the trumpets] would be sounded for the sacrifices. There were never less than 21 trumpet blasts sounded each day in the Temple: three at the opening of the gates [of the Temple Courtyard], nine for the daily offering of the morning, and nine for the daily offering of the afternoon. On a day when a Musaf offering is brought, nine trumpet blasts are added for the Musaf offering. If Rosh Chodesh or a festival falls on the Sabbath or Rosh HaShanah falls on the Sabbath - in which instance three Musaf offerings are brought- we do not sound the trumpets for each Musaf offering individually. Instead, nine trumpet blasts are sounded for all the Musaf offerings.

One Friday, six trumpet blasts are added: three to [notify] the people [when] to cease work and three to make a distinction between the holy and the mundane. On the pilgrimage festivals, three are added [to announce] the opening of the lower gate, i.e., the gate to the Women's Courtyard, and three [to announce] the opening of the upper gate, i.e., the Gate of Nicanor.
(...)
There are three types of priestly garments: the garments of an ordinary priest, [the High Priest's] golden garments and his white garments. An ordinary priest has four garments: a tunic, leggings, a hat, and a sash. They are all made from white linen with six-fold threads.The sash alone was embroidered with wool.

Shulchan Aruch
Orach Chayim

ט' צִבּוּרִין שֶׁל מַצָּה וְאֶחָד שֶׁל חָמֵץ, וּבָא עַכְבָּר וְנָטַל וְלֹא יָדַעְנוּ אִם נָטַל חָמֵץ אוֹ אִם נָטַל מַצָּה, וְנִכְנַס לְבַיִת בָּדוּק, צָרִיךְ לַחֲזֹר וּלְבָדְקוֹ, מִיהוּ אִם הַכִּכָּר קָטָן שֶׁיָּכוֹל הָעַכְבָּר לֶאֱכֹל תָּלִינָן לְהָקֵל שֶׁאֲכָלוֹ וְאֵין צָרִיךְ לִבְדֹּק (טוּר)שֶׁכָּל הַקָּבוּעַ כְּמֶחֱצָה עַל מֶחֱצָה; וְאִם פֵּרֵשׁ הַכִּכָּר מִמְּקוֹם קְבִיעָתוֹ, וּנְטָלוֹ הָעַכְבָּר מִשָּׁם, אֵין צָרִיךְ לַחֲזֹר וְלִבְדֹּק; דְּכָל דְּפָרִישׁ, מֵרֻבָּא פָּרִישׁ.Nine piles of matza, and one of chametz, and a mouse comes and takes [from the piles] and we do not know if the mouse took chametz or matza, and the mouse entered a checked house - you must return and check it (however, if the food is small enough that the mouse could have eaten it - we can rely on a leniency that the mouse did eat it, and you do not need to check) (Tur), as every established place is like a half of a half [i.e. each established location is treated as its own majority]. If the food was separated from its established place, and the mouse took it from there - you do not need to return and check it, as anything separated [is considered to be] separated from the majority.
Even HaEzer

בַּמֶּה דְּבָרִים אֲמוּרִים שֶׁאִם קִדְּשָׁהּ אַחֵר וְלֹא נִתְקַיֵּם הַתְּנַאי שֶׁהַגֵּט בָּטֵל, בִּתְנַאי שֶׁהוּא בְּלָאו, וְעָשְׂתָה מַעֲשֶׂה בְּבִטּוּלוֹ, אוֹ בִּתְנַאי שֶׁהוּא בְּמַעֲשֶׂה תּוֹךְ זְמַן קָצוּב וְעָבַר הַזְּמַן וְלֹא נַעֲשָׂה, אוֹ בְּאֵיזֶה דֶּרֶךְ שֶׁהָיָה הַתְּנַאי מְבֻטָּל בְּפֹעַל, הַגֵּט בָּטֵל. אֲבָל בִּתְנַאי שֶׁבְּיָדָהּ לְקַיְּמוֹ וּבָהּ הַדָּבָר תָּלוּי וְאִם נִתְקַיֵּם הַתְּנַאי מְגֹרֶשֶׁת, חַיְשִׁינָן שֶׁמָּא קִיְּמָה הַתְּנַאי (הַמ''מ) וְחָלוּ קִדּוּשֵׁי שֵׁנִי:When is the divorce document invalidated when another man betroths her and the condition is not fulfilled? When the condition was not to do something, and she did the act that nullified it; or the condition was an act within a specific time period and the time passed and the action was undone; or in some fashion that the condition was violated actively, then the divorce document is nullified. But a condition that is in her power to fulfill, and the matter is dependent on her, and were she to fulfill the condition she would be divorced (Rem"a: we take into account the possibility that she fulfilled the condition [Maggid Mishnah]) and the betrothal of the second man takes effect.
