The Divine is holy. We are created in the Divine image. Holy we shall be.
To be holy is to be unique, is to be exclusive, is to be beyond. The Creator of all is unique, exclusive, and beyond. Connect with the Creator and holy we shall be. Here are the Mitzvoth, the connections, to help achieve this holiness: do not worship (l)imitations; be righteous, charitable; uphold the law; celebrate Shabbat, the tranquility of the world; be purely and morally intimate; be honest; honor, revere parents; keep life holy and holy you shall be. Here’s the fundamental principle: Love your fellow as yourself.
