One of the most often misquoted lines to me when presenting the idea that G-d Needs Your MItzvos is: There is no way, it’s impossible to affect Atzmus!!! At first glance that seems to be a reasonable objection, after all G-d is infinite and we are finite.
But just listen how Rabbi Friedman so clearly articulates how that is not true in this video highlight. And make sure to catch the line towards the end at 24:05- “On the contrary, if you deny him the ability to be finite then he is not really infinite.”
This session with Rabbi Manis Friedman & Rabbi Yossi Paltiel was given to 770 Bochurim at the Levi Yitzchok Library. Included below are sources and notes prepared by Rabbi Paltiel on the subject of “Avoda Tzorech Gavoah“. Please note that this is the session in it’s entirety.
