Torah, Love and Purity of Purpose


"Rabbi Meir said: One who studies Torah for its own sake...loves Gd and loves all of Gd's creations."

(Pirkei Avot 6:1)

Rabbeinu Yosef Yaavetz explained: "Such a person does not desire any of this world's profits, for he adheres to his Creator. Therefore, he will love all creatures; he has no reason to hate, and people naturally love each other when they are not distracted by jealousy, desire and honor."

Have a great day,
