Kitzur Tefilat Amecha #15

[adapted by Rabbi Shmuel Jablon from Rav Aviner's three-volume commentary on the siddur "Tefilat Amecha"]

At the end of "Le-Olam Yehei Adam," we say: "Blessed is Hashem…for sanctifying His name in public." Being able to make a Kiddush Hashem is a huge mitzvah. Sometimes Jews do it in how they die. But here we’re talking about being able to do it in the way that we live. In every situation we are in, we can sanctify Hashem’s Name. Often we don’t get to choose our situation. Sometimes we have hard times. But whatever our situation, we want to live and act in a way that makes Hashem proud and that shows the world the Holy way in which we live.
