- Questions on Hashem
how much does Hashem love us? how much does He love one jew and all of Israel together?
Shalom, Thank you for your question. When it comes to describing the attributes of Hashem, we should be careful. The first and most important thing to understand is that any descriptions we make about Hashem are limited by the fact that we are human creations, and not Hashem the creator. That being so, anything we say about Hashem is bound to be limited by our human mind and ability to understand things. None the less, in human terms, Hashem’s love for all His creation is unbounded. All the more so His love for one Jew. And all the more so for His love for all of Israel together. You may want to examine the words of the second blessing of the evening service, that begin “With an eternal love have You love the house of Israel”. Blessings.
