The Six Constant Mitzvot

The obligation to fulfill the 613 mitzvos of the Torah is not constant; rather, they are obligatory during specific times of the year or day.

Six mitzvos, however, are obligatory consta­ntly; they should not be absent from one’s consci­ousness for even one second of his life. They are:
1) To have faith in Hashem.
2) Not to believe in other gods.
3) To understand that He is One.
4) To love Him.
5) To fear Him.
6) Not to stray after the thoughts of our heart and the sight of our eyes

The Six Rememb­rances

The Torah commands Jews to always remember six specific experi­ences. These things are known as the “Six Rememb­rances” and can be found in most prayer books at the end of the morning service.
The six rememb­rances are:
1) To remember the Exodus from Egypt
2) To remember the Sin of the Golden Calf
3) To remember the giving of the Torah
4) To remember the Shabbat
5) To remember the Attack of Amalek
6) To remember the Sin of Miriam

Many indivi­duals have the commen­dable custom of reciting the Six Rememb­rances every day following Shacharit, the morning prayer. According to some author­ities doing so is a Torah requir­ement. It is taught that reciting the Six Rememb­rances is even greater than reciting the entire Book of Psalms Some author­ities encourage one to bear in mind the Six Rememb­rances prior to reciting the Shema each morning.

Six Mitzvot

Vilna Gaon adds Four Remebr­ances

1) Remember Hashem your God for it is He who gives you the ability to produce wealth.
2) Remember how Hashem your God led you in the wilderness these forty years to humble and test you in order to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his comman­dments. He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your ancestors had known. To teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that emerges from the mouth of the Hashem.
3) If I forget you Jerusalem, may my right hand forget its skill. May my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth if I do not remember you, if I do not place Jerusalem above my highest joy.
4) Remember what Balak king of Moab planned and what Bilaam the son of Beor answered him – from Shittim to Gilgal – that you may know the righteous acts of Hashem.
HaShem = The Name (God)
