AHAVAT OLAM: “With an eternal and infinite love, you have loved us, Adonoi, Elohaynu (God of Justice, God of Mercy)”.
Without this eternal love, nothing could exist, for it is the metaphysical glue that holds the universe together and gives it continuity. It is a love that is timeless, a love beyond mudane definition, a love that transcends duality, a love on the level that is the urge for the heart to beat, for the newborn to breathe, for the earth to turn, for the stars to shine. There is another version for this for the evening prayer service. Please see 1164.
