The Torah View of Man

Every day, I receive emails from One of those daily emails is entitled "Daily Lift" by Rabbi Zelig Pliskin. I really liked this "lift" from August 4th, and so I thought I'd share it. Perhaps it will offend you for some reason? I hope so.

Daily Lift #369

The Torah View Of Man

From the Torah viewpoint humans are the goals and the purpose of the entire creation. Without the Torah perspective, there is no essential difference between a human and a donkey.

Someone looking at the world from a completely secular viewpoint has no basis for the value of man. On the philosophical level, man would have no more inherent worth than any other piece of matter.

(Gesher Hachayim, vol.3, p.52, Gateway to Happiness, pp.118-9)

If you liked this email, I'd encourage you visit and subscribe to this daily email yourself. You can always cancel if you decide you don't like it. But these emails are REALLY short, as you can very well see, and its always nice to get a little bit of Torah in your inbox.
