A Poet's View

Holiness is where the soul is. It says what god wants you to do. And about the torah
It is what G-d provides.
Holiness is what you get from Torah.
And it is you who decides.

G-d said you should be holy
because I, your G-d, am so.
I belong to you in particular.
I am the Creator, and that, you should know.

I am going to teach you mitzvahs.
My Torah teaches law.
Turn away from evil and do good.
Follow Moses and listen
he will tell you what he knows and saw.

Holiness is where the soul is.
G-d rewards you on your behalf.
He invests in your future.
Work 'til you finish your tasks.

All Jews are brothers.
Their souls belong to one G-d.
Love G-d, love Israel, love Torah,
love another like yourself;
love goodness, spare the rod.

Holiness is where the soul is.
Strengthen and spread yiddishkeit.
Influence your surroundings.
G-d is watching day and night.

Yes, holiness is where the soul is
and there are things of holiness to G-d.
