Daily Quote
It is the manner of a father to have compassion (rachamim), as it is written, "As a father has compassion on children [so does G-d have compassion for those who fear Him]" (Psalms 103:13). It is the manner of a mother to console, as it is written, "As a man whose mother does console him [so shall I console you]" (Isaiah 66:13). Says G-d: I shall do both as father and as mother
