Rabbi Shoshana Kaminsky:
“Rabbi Hillel’s teaching can be seen as a commentary on the classic text from Leviticus 19: Love your neighbour as yourself. Judaism is full of reminders to look beyond ourselves to reflect on how we care for others. Rabbi Hillel’s assertion that this is the essence of the law is a powerful statement on religion’s central role in our lives”
