Directly to the Creator

In his Commentary on the Writings, Rabbi Moshe Chaim Luzzato (The Ramchal) writes that the name Ysrael (Israel) derives from the words Yashar El (directly to the Creator). He explains that those who are Israel—who want to reach the Creator—pave the way for all the nations of the world “to enter under the wings of divinity,” that the nations are dependent upon Israel’s implementation of their role.
