An Apophatic Theologian

No predicate is
adequate to
express the
nature of God.
Acquired Immortality

This knowledge of
God not only
confers on the soul
that perfection in
which human
happiness consists,
but also endows the
soul with immortality.
Human Essence

What distinguishes
anyone from anyone
else is not some
inherent quality, but
the quality and
quantity of what they
know.
Jews and Gentiles

Since all human
beings will devote
themselves to the
pursuit of the
knowledge of God in
the messianic era,
that which
distinguishes
Gentiles from Jews
will disappear.
13 Principles

Orthodox
Judaism holds
belief in these
principles to be
obligatory.
Summary

The last goal is
service. The
truly holy lead
lives of service.
