SALZMAN'S TEACHING

"If a man has fulfilled the whole of the teachings and all the commandments, but has not had the rapture and the burning, when he dies and passes beyond, paradise is opened to him, but because he has not felt rapture in the world - he does not feel it in paradise."

- Pnina Salzman quoting Martin Buber
(The Legend of the Baal-Shem)
