THE SHEER SPIRIT OF ISRAEL

by Rabbi Avraham Yitzchak Kook

The Torah is bonded with the spirit of Israel.

The sheer spirit of Israel is filled with everything: the light of God, the testimony of life, and the source of souls.

When the Torah grows strong, when its knowledge grows broad, when its light shines, when its feelings grow deep in the midst of every soul, then the divine light spreads in the world, grows beautiful and rises.

Then the entire world rises with the elevation of those individuals of elevated spirit.
Oros Hatorah 12:1
