URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/high_holy_days/article/5_theories_you_meet_in_heaven

Jewish pietistic literature is well aware that anyone can go through the motions of outward observance. By sovereignty of the divine, I mean finding a way to find a standard for the duties and habits of the inner life.
