Kaplan Quote of the Week

Weekly Quote from Rabbi Mordecai Kaplan, z"l (1881-1983)
Religion, like government and language, cannot even begin to be real with less than two minds.... Religion does not begin when an individual human being enters into relationship with a god; there must first be at least two human beings.

From Communings of the Spirit, Vol. I, page 58, Monday, February 24, 1913; used with permission.
