When davening by Rabbi Chaim Pinchas Scheinberg one Friday night he did not cover his eyes for Shema.

Are there any sources that suggest merely closing one's eyes for Shema rather than covering them with one's hands?

Didn't Rabbi Chaim Pinchas Scheinberg die a year ago? –  Double AA Nov 7 '13 at 1:22
@DoubleAA yes, this was several years ago –  bondonk Nov 7 '13 at 10:56
Why did you write "Shlita" after his name then? –  Double AA Nov 7 '13 at 15:07
