Let My People Know

Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz: “Increasing God’s presence on earth”

Each of us also has the ability to “channel” God.

When we forget ourselves in prayer, we let God enter.

When we give tzedaka – not as an expression of our power, but as an agent of God in the distribution of His bounty – we are God’s conduit into the world.

And when we learn Torah as a way of unifying our minds with His, we are increasing God’s presence on earth.

This Shavuot, and every day, each of us has the ability to receive the Torah – our Torah – and become a vehicle for holiness.

–Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz
