Human Responsibility

Material matters are agents for the achievement of perfection.

HaShem’s design, however, is very deep, and He arranged things so that even though man must be immersed in the physical, he is able to rise to protection through his worldly activities and the and the physical world itself.

Living in accordance to HaShem’s Plan is the key to self-perfection.

Man serves G-d by observing all His commandments, and the root purpose of this service is to make mankind always conscious of G-d, Himself, and turn mankind toward G-d’s loving kindness and mercy.

Love and fear of HaShem is necessary for spiritual growth.

Mankind should always yearn and desire to be among those who serve HaShem, to exult in His Praise and be exalted by His Greatness.
