Yet To Be Ignited

Even if one is presented with a child who is intellectually unmotivated and emotionally and spiritually insensitive, one should realize that these are temporary obstacles, the result of his soul-fire having yet to be ignited. In every Jewish child there flickers a spark of Divinity - the deepest expression of the Jewish soul waiting to be kindled and fanned into a blazing flame of sanctity.
