Two Gems

Here are two gems from Rabbi Adin Shteinsaltz's speech tonight at the Philadelphia Hilton:

There are religions that teach Laws which they claim came from heaven. Judaism believes that the Torah's Laws are heaven itself. By studying them one enters into the space of heaven.

I often meet people who with genuine pride share that their grandfather or great grandfather was a Rabbi or at least a very pious Jew. Why doesn't it occur to them that their grandfather or great grandfather also wanted them to become a Rabbi or at least a pious Jew?
