The Alter Rebbe repeated what the Mezritcher Maggid said quoting the Baal Shem Tov: "Love your fellow like yourself" is an interpretation of and commentary on "Love Hashem your G‑d." He who loves his fellow-Jew loves G‑d, because the Jew has within himself a "part of G‑d Above." Therefore, when one loves the Jew - i.e. his inner essence - one loves G‑d.
