Why are we here?


"Man has no advantage over animal other than in his higher, wise soul, which will return to the Honored Gd who gave it. It was brought into the body for its education, in order to learn the deeds of its Master and guard His mitzvot. All wisdom will provide its master with life, and there are many forms of wisdom, each aiding and all like rungs of a ladder ascending to the true forms of wisdom. Fortunate is one whose heart’s eyes are open, turning toward Divine light and toward His good in the end."

(R’ Avraham ibn Ezra, Yesod Mora, Hakdamah)

Have a great day,
