What exactly is holiness?

G-d defines the role of the Jewish nation as (Exodus 19:6), “A kingdom of priests and a holy nation.” Clearly, holiness is not some elusive concept intended only for the greatest leaders of the generation. Holiness is a way of life that is attainable for each and every Jew.

So what exactly is it? Join me as we look through different examples that the Torah defines as holy, and we uncover the secret to living a fulfilled and holy life!

Happy Listening!

Rabbi Moshe
