Tzitzit: Separating Man from Beast


On Tzitzit:

"Thus when the sensitive eye and the sensitive heart of man wander out into the visible world, and are then thrown back upon themselves, they find the human garment – the first visible characteristic distinguishing man from beast – reminding man of his superiority over brutishness and making him aware of the existence of the Invisible One and His word, and recalling vividly G-d, human dignity and the mission of Israel..."

(Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch, Horeb 278)
