Every Person Born into This World

Four people in profile walking with the sunset behind them

Version 1

Every person born into this world represents something new, something that never existed before, something original and unique. It is the duty of every person in Israel to know and consider that he is unique in the world in his particular character, and that there has never been someone like him before. For if there had been someone like him before, there would be no need for him to be in the world. Every single person is a new thing in the world and is called upon to fulfill his particularity in the world.

Version 2

Every person born into this world brings something new and different, something that never existed before. It is the duty of every person to know and consider that she is unique in her particular character, and that there has never been someone like her in the world. Every single person is a new presence and is called upon to fulfill her particularity. (From the Simchat Bat for Hallel Avital Abrams Gerber)
