Let My People Know

Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz: “Alien influences.”

“As he liberates himself from alien influences, the penitent can only gradually straighten himself out.He has to overcome the forms engraved by time and place before he can reach his own image.

He must break free of the chains, the limitations, and the restrictions imposed by environment and education.”


–Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz
