About Rabbi Hillel

Rabbi Hillel is one of the central figures of Jewish tradition, shaping rabbinical philosophy. Born in Babylonia in the first century B.C., he moved to Jerusalem to study the Torah. According to legend, he couldn’t afford the admission fee to the school, and because of him the fee was abolished. It is believed that he coined the Golden Rule. When a Gentile came to him, wanting to understand the Torah, Hillel said, “What is hateful to thee, do not do unto thy fellow man. This is the whole Law, the rest is mere commentary.”

    I always think those first little sprouts look like little tiny totems standing there. You’ve captured that well!
