Judaism teaches us…
Pruzansky: that all human beings are created in the image of God, but that doesn’t mean we are all obligated in the identical divine service or that all roads lead to the same destination. It does mean that our human identity, capacity to think and make free-willed choices is divine – and the greatest challenge of our lives is to ascertain God’s will and surrender to it.

Shafran: is that it be entirely united by the grand unifier that created Klal Yisrael in the first place, at the foot of Har Sinai, 3,326 years ago.
