Loving God: Deuteronomy 6:5


Can you help me understand Deuteronomy 6: 5, where it says that you should “LOVE” the Lord? The Hebrew word for “LOVE” means what exactly?



  1. The Rabbis teach that the word for love in this verse means that we live our lives according to the commandments and that we should learn God’s Torah. That is how we show our love for God.
