This verse in Leviticus speaks of the goal of the Jewish people of sustaining a status of holiness; of being holy as God is holy. In handing these requirements to the Jewish people, God is requiring that they distinguish themselves from the other nations. They are handed an enormous responsibility to live a holy life, to follow God’s commandments and to come as close as possible to the holiness of God. In that role, they are to have a positive influence on the rest of the world. Before the Jewish People can help the rest of the world, they must make sure that they have taken care of their own. To have a positive influence on the rest of the world, the Jewish people must demonstrate how to behave towards the needy and downtrodden. Colel Chabad has made it its mission to provide spiritual and physical necessities to the needy across Israel.
In a small synagogue in Jerusalem, a quorum of dedicated Bible scholars sponsored by Colel Chabad continuously study Talmud to elevate departed Jewish souls. Through rain or shine, war or peace, this holy activity has been continuous for 117 years.
The word "beloved" describes the strong bond between Hashem and his children. This ring engraved with its inspiring Biblical verse, reminds us of the unique relationship that each of us has with Hashem. This loving relationship described in Song of Songs is often paralleled to the relationship of a bride and a groom, a husband and wife. We should always strive to make sure that our love for God is as strong as our love for our spouses and families.
Shalom Rabbi Tuly and Team, keep up the great work in spreading the message of God and Israel to the world, Bible prophecy is certainly being fulfilled not only in the Holy Land of Israel but also the World, it is all leading to the ultimate destruction of evil and let us all rejoice about this fact, anyway all my love especially to my brothers and sisters in Christ, keep up the fight. Yours truly, Paul V. Cleary of Wollongong, Australia. God Bless.
