“Rabbi Akiva taught: ‘You shall love your fellow like yourself’ is the fundamental rule of the Torah."
Above the Angels provides a clear, in-depth understanding of the fundamental concepts of bein adam lechaveiro: good middos, chesed, and derech eretz. Based on the teachings of Chazal, and filled with many stories and practical advice, it guides one to become caring, giving, and sensitive to others. It elevates the reader to emulate Hashem’s character traits and explains why and how learning Torah enables one to do so.
