.Unity in Diversity

“How good and how pleasant it is for brothers to sit together.” [Psalms 133:1]

Unity in Diversity

 

Difference need not lead to division. On the contrary, true unity comes from a synthesis of different – and even opposite – thrusts. Thus, we see that the patriarchs Abraham, Isaac and Jacob represented three different approaches to Divine service – Abraham represented the love of G-d; Isaac, the awe of G-d; and Jacob, the harmony between these opposites. Yet together, they established the one and unique spiritual heritage of the Jewish people.

This unity has a broader scope, encompassing all of mankind – Gentiles and Jews. Indeed, it extends beyond the human realm to include the totality of existence, since we are all G-d’s creations.[2]
