HILLEL and the whole TORAH

A famous story in the Talmud concerns a person asking different rabbis to tell him the whole Torah while he stood "on one foot," meaning in a brief summary. Eventually he came to a great sage named Hillel, a descendant of King David and the leading rabbi of his generation. How would Hillel reply to this question? Can the vast Torah really be reduced to a single statement? "What you do not like, do not do to others," came Hillel’s answer. "That is the whole Torah. The rest is commentary. Go and study."1
