Chassidim asked the Alter Rebbe: "Which is the superior avoda, love of G‑d or love of Israel?" He replied: "Both love of G‑d and love of Israel are equally engraved in every Jew's neshama, ruach, and nefesh.1 Scripture is explicit: 'I have loved you, says the L-rd.'2 It follows that love of Israel is superior - for you love whom your beloved loves."
