Turn Up the Light: Erev Rosh Hashanah, 5741 · September 10, 1980

A Jew’s purpose is to illuminate all the world around him. To “illuminate” does not mean to change the order of creation; rather, light enables one to discern the true nature and purpose of what already is there.

What a wonderful page! Thank you so very much for doing all this. My husband's great-grandmother got our of Germany early in the 20th Century; she was Jewish. My father's mother was Jewish. Your work and message has shed much light on our lives. Thank you again. The light will prevail. Reply
