Let My People Know

Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz: “The proper fear of heaven.”

Someone once remarked that in order to attain the proper fear of heaven, one must study Maimonides’ Guide for the Perplexed from the end to the beginning, so as to begin with the answers and end with the questions.

The meaning of this strange statement is that sometimes people begin with the questions and do not have the strength to continue to the answers, so they remain with the questions and never emerge from them.
