A Devar Torah for you all…. “Thou shalt love they neighbor as thyself” (Leviticus 19:18 )

A Devar Torah for you all….
“Thou shalt love they neighbor as thyself” (Leviticus 19:18 ) Learning to love other human beings as much as yourself really takes a lifetime of training. It really is the deepest, deepest concept of true Judaism. And if you truly love another person, then it can’t be that you would sin against your own body and soul, when we are all eccentrically attached and One. If there is any hate in your heart to others, even those not Jewish, you simply can’t completely separate in most cases and have a full heart to love all Jews as the Torah commands us. In the Sefiros, heavenly spheres, Chesed, love comes first and then flows to Gevurah, Strength. Therefore, even before we are to dislike our enemies, we must flow our thoughts through love, compassion and pity for those in the wrong. May Hashem help us to grow in the true aspect of, “Thou shalt love they neighbor as thyself” Leviticus 19:18

    its well known that all the big tzaddikim never feel ill towards another. that its self should teach us the importance of ahavas yisroel. that the best traits of the tzadikim should be emulated, and u will never find a tzadik with soineh.
