Love and Positivity

''....they shall make for themselves fringes on the corners of their garments, throughout their generations, and they shall affix a thread of sky blue [wool] on the fringe of each corner.'' [Shelach 15:38]

The turquoise strands of the tzitzit allude to ''abandoning evil'' [negative] and serving G-d out of fear; the white strands allude to ''doing good'' [positive] and serving G-d out of love.

In the current era, the turquoise dye [techelet] is not available to us, leaving all eight strands white. This teaches us that nowadays our emphasis in serving G-d should be on love and positivity.

G-d in order to reach the higher levels of love of G-d , . The late chief Rabbi of Israel Isaac Herzog in his Thesis identified the Chiazon the hard worg has been done now it's up to us , Tcheles is here once again the skeptics are being מבטל this beautiful mitzva which is a positive mitzva by all accounts even according to the lebavitcher this is a Mitzvas Assey from the Torah !
