A Call to Holiness: “You shall be holy for I, HaShem, your G-d, am holy.” (Lev. 19:1) A tall order, for sure, but G-d seems to think that we’re up for it. He calls upon and expects that each and every individual, as well as the entire assembly of Israel is capable of being holy and of leading holy lives. Being holy involves dedicating our entire souls and bodies to doing what’s good in G-d’s eyes, today and in this world.
