I am your Gd


"You may, again, recognize the world as the temple of Gd’s omnipotence, without, however, feeling that every spot on which you tread in this temple is hallowed to Gd…

"So long as this is so, your knowledge is barren. The flower of actual life does not spring from it. It is for this reason that Israel’s life history opens with the words, ‘I am the Lord thy Gd.’… Here is the threshold of Jewish life, the condition and basis of all that follows."

(R' Shimshon Raphael Hirsch, Horeb, paragraphs 2-3)

Have a great day,
