Root of all Middos is Temimus [#182]

February 9, 2018


Is temimus my essence, or is it one of our middos?


It is a middah, but it is not just one of the middos; it is the root of all the middos. The Torah is called “Toras Hashem Temimah” – it is perfect because it contains everything. So too, temimus is the root power of all the powers in our soul, because it can lead us to everything else.
