In my birthday/Chanukah post, I talked about choseness. It’s a tough subject. Very few understand it. Most interpret it as a triumphalist, elitist statement. This is true for both those embracing the concept as well as those who are offended by it.

So, to make it simple, in the words of Reb Shlomo: “What does it mean to be chosen? To let everyone know that they are also chosen.”

More on this later.
