purpose as Jews is to elevate creation and return it to a complete state of holiness.
We do this by using the material world in an appropriate holy way. Walking to
do a good deed reveals and elevates the holy spark in our bodies; when we make
a blessing on food and use the energy from it to do something positive, we elevate
the holiness in the food.
