Let My People Know

"An illusory frame of reference"


Each society creates an illusory frame of reference as to what is important and necessary and what is of little worth. 

Once a sin has been defined as insignificant, the prohibition against it is trampled underfoot and forgotten. 

–Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz
From Understanding the Tanya, Ch. 30  by Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz
