Rabbi's Shema

 

There is a braita: Shema Yisrael Adonai Elohainu Adonai echad – This is the Shema recitation of Rabbi. Rav said to Rabbi Hiyya, “It does not appear that Rabbi accepts upon himself the kingship of heaven.” He said to him, “Bar P-CH-T-Y. At the moment he passes his hands across his face, he accepts upon himself the kingship of heaven.” (B. Berachot 13)
