all mitzvahs are connected to the physical world. Belief in G-d The mitzvah of emunas Elokus is in the realm of adam kadmon. It isn't connected to the emotions, it is much higher than thought and understanding. It seems to have no connection what so ever to this physical realm of existence.

Maybe it's because the physical brain must go through the "action" in a very spiritual manner of speaking, using letters, etc. to grasp even the concept of a "mitzvah" of belief in G-d. Reply

In each episode of this series, host, Michael Kigel, a panel of young students and a "special guest expert" discuss a clip of the Rebbe's public talks. Produced by Chabad of Toronto as "Messages -- Season 4."
