What is the Heart of the Jewish Home?

What is the Heart of the Jewish Home?

House (בית) equals 412
Temple (מקדש) equals 444.
The difference between them? 32, which equals heart (לב).
What is the heart of the Jewish home? The Jewish mother.
Who has the power–through mitzvot, through prayer, through her own love for her family– to transform her humble house into a sanctuary of holiness: a modern-day Holy Temple.
