In preparation for Elul and the beginning of the Forty Days of Awe, I'd like very much to return to the topic of Torah Basic Concepts. However, before moving on, here is a re-cap of what we've already covered:

Introduction: "The Jewish Idea"

Basic Concepts: "The Yoke of Heaven"

Basic Concepts: "Fear of Heaven"

Basic Concepts: "Humility, Submission and Lowliness"

Basic Concepts: "Ahavat Hashem (The Love of G-d)"

Basic Concepts: "Accepting the Yoke of Heaven"

Basic Concepts: "Good and Evil"

Basic Concepts: "Chessed (Kindness)"

Basic Concepts: "Mercy and Compassion"

Basic Concepts: "...Contentment With One's Portion"

Basic Concepts: "Love and Respect for One's Fellow Jew"

Basic Concepts: "Life and Death"
