There can be no greater love than an Infinite Being who is ready to listen to the voice of an infinitesimal creature.
Yet as tiny as we are, our souls return G-d's love by saying to Him: "...place me like a seal on Your heart...[for my love] is as strong as death.
Your soul is compared to a dove which cleaves to its mate and when it is led to slaughter, it doesn't struggle but stretches forth its neck. So is the Jewish soul ready to bear His yoke.
Thank you, dear friends, for the many emails that I've received on my last two full-length lessons: Safe Haven and Your Beloved Dove. Since you liked them so much, here is a much shorter version of Your Beloved Dove.
Happy Chanuka, dear friends!
