Joseph H. Hertz
To Israel's faithful hosts in the past, as to its loyal sons and daughters of the present, the Siddur has been the gate to communion with their Father in Heaven; and, at the same time, it has been a mighty spiritual bond that unites them to their scattered brethren the world over.
Hertz quotes
Life is a frail and transitory thing, but it has been given a higher purpose and dignity through the revelation of God's Teaching to Israel, and the resulting dedication of an entire people to God's service.
Hertz
Prayer is a universal phenomenon in the soul-life of man. It is the soul's reaction to the terrors and joys, the uncertainties and dreams of life.




Hertz Joseph H. quotes
"Accept the true from whatever source it come," is sound rabbinic doctrine even if it be from the pages of a devout Christian expositor or of an iconoclastic Biblical scholar, Jewish or non-Jewish.
Hertz Joseph H.
The immemorial ingratitude of rulers and commonwealths is proverbial. Especially common is ingratitude to Israel the People that has achieved so much of eternal worth, but has rarely succeeded in winning gratitude.
Joseph H. Hertz quotes
Man must be a co-worker with God in making this earth a garden.
Joseph H. Hertz
Not indolence but congenial work is man's Divinely allotted portion.
Hertz Joseph H. quotes
A wife is not a man's shadow or subordinate, but his other self, his "helper," in a sense which no other creature on earth can be.
Hertz
Men of all lands and climes are brothers.
Hertz Joseph H.
Everything in the Universe was as the Creator willed it nothing superfluous, nothing lacking a harmony.
Joseph H. Hertz
Divine punishment is at once followed by Divine pity.




Joseph H. Hertz quotes
In spite of the pangs of travail, the longing for motherhood remains the most powerful instinct in woman.
Joseph H. Hertz
Man's most sacred privilege is freedom of will, the ability to obey or disobey his Maker.
Hertz quotes
Though man comes from the dust, sin is not a part of his nature. Man can overcome sin, and through repentance attain to at-one-ment with his Maker.
Hertz Joseph H.
Because man is endowed with Reason, he can subdue his impulses in the service of moral and religious ideals, and is born to bear rule over Nature.
