In memory of Rabbi Levi Yitzchok ben R' Zalman Yuda Deitsch OBM
A Jew's service begins with gathering together the different aspects of his own being. Afterwards, he gathers together with the entire Jewish people, and then, gathers together every element of the world and shows how their entire existence is intended to carry out G-d's will. In this manner, every moment of a Jew's life should be one in which he "wakes up from sleep," and begins with thanking G-d for returning his soul. And this will lead to the ultimate process of ingathering, the ingathering of the dispersed Jewish people. G-d will "bring us together from the four corners of the earth into our land."
(The Lubavitcher Rebbe, 25 Adar I, 1992
