Love is my Religion

LIMR-lotus-cover9-200by Rabbi David Aaron

People often perceive religion to be more about restrictions than love. They claim that it is more about fearing God and feeling guilty rather than loving God and feeling joy. They conclude that it leads us to a life of weakness and submission and robs us of our power and freedom to be our true selves.

LOVE is my Religion demonstrates how the Torah is quite the opposite of these misconceptions. It is founded upon love and its purpose is love. Its teachings encourage us to be strong and its laws empower us to achieve true freedom, choose love and experience the ecstatic joy of being in love. Torah does not promote or encourage conversion, rather it provides a space within its framework for participation and love of and between all people.
