Let My People Know

"A human being has a huge spiritual potential"

"When a person is in a coma, we feel a deep sense of pity, not because that per­son is suffering, but because that condition is a degrada­tion of someone who once could act, and now cannot.

The spiritual degradation of working far below capacity should engender the same feeling of pity.


A human being has a huge spiritual potential.


When such a creature lives life at a much lower level, it is not sinful—it is just a pity."

–Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz
