“All of the Torah — ethics, mitzvot, learning, and practice —
come to remove the obstacles that prevent an
all-encompassing love from expanding and spreading
to every corner of life, everywhere.”
—Rabbi Avraham Yitzchak HaCohen Kook
This is a book about love, about how to become a more loving human being. How to love ourselves, our families, our communities, other human beings and every cell of creation — more. It has been inspired by the writings of the contemporary mystic, Rabbi Avraham Yitzchak HaCohen Kook.
According to Rav Kook, love flows from our souls. Love brings oneness into the world. Becoming a loving person is the goal of living in the Image of God. “I love all.” Rav Kook writes. “I cannot not love all people. The Torah is love”.
