      This book analyzes the Love of God in both of its literal directions-- love of God by Israel and love of Israel by God. Jon Levenson examines the commandment ," You will love your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your might," from the point of view of what it means to command love. Ancient sources describe relationships between suzerainty and vassals. Biblical, Rabbinic, and modern writings (Buber and Rosenzweig) are discussed. The idea of closely following ritual observ [...]
