רְאֵה יְהֹוָה וְהַבִּיטָה לְמִי עוֹלַלְתָּ כֹּה אִם תֹּאכַלְנָה נָשִׁים פִּרְיָם עֹלְלֵי טִפֻּחִים אִם יֵהָרֵג בְּמִקְדַּשׁ אֲדֹנָי כֹּהֵן וְנָבִיא:

Song of Songs:

They all hold the sword, skilled in warfare; each one with his sword on his thigh because of fear at night.

כֻּלָּם אֲחֻזֵי חֶרֶב מְלֻמְּדֵי מִלְחָמָה אִישׁ חַרְבּוֹ עַל יְרֵכוֹ מִפַּחַד בַּלֵּילוֹת:

Hayom Yom

When one enwraps himself with the tallit gadol (large tallit) it is unnecessary to cover his head and face down to his mouth; this is indicated in the laws of tzitzit in the siddur (p. 11). It is our custom, however, to cover the eyes with the upper part of the tallit.
During the days of sefira it is customary to study tractate Sota, one page each day - in addition to one's regular study sessions.
