|Hallel Rosh Chodesh Av Paragraph Five: Planting Seeds - Collecting Sparks|
Rabbi Yosef of Coucy reminds us that we were sent into exile for two purposes: 1) To plant seeds of God’s Light everywhere in the world, to become, “A light unto the nations.” 2) To collect the lost souls of those who have Divine sparks deep inside of them, and bring them back to their source. This paragraph of the Rosh Chodesh Av Hallel is a reminder of our positive mission in exile:
“All you nations; Praise God!
Sing compliments, all you peoples!
For His kindness overpowers us, and God’s Truth is forever.
