Love Your Fellow

Asked by a would-be proselyte to teach him the whole Torah while standing on one foot, Hillel Hazaken (the elder) replied with the adage: "What is hateful to you, do not do unto your fellow; this is the whole Torah, all the rest is commentary. Now go and learn!" (Shabbos 31a).


Rabbi Akiva says that, "To love your fellow as yourself," is a great basic principle of the Torah. (Leviticus 19:18, Midrash)


“Like a son who strives for the sake of his father and mother, whom he loves even more than his own body, soul and spirit" (Likutei Amarim Tanya of Rabbi Shneur of Liadi, Chapter 44)


Perhaps one of the greatest loves that can be witnessed is the love between a father and son.
