The Purpose of A Jew

The purpose of Jews throughout the generations is similar to that of Adam and Chava.  They were placed on this earth to renew the spiritual light-thereby perfecting all of creation.  Each generation has a task of drawing spiritual lights into the world by fulfilling the 613 directives.  This creates the Tikkun (rectification) of the physical body by elevating it to the spiritual plane the level of Neshama.  Engagement with the physical world will lead to the unity of all knowledge culminating in that perfect eternal state reflected in Jerusalem.
