Two mega-principles central to the daily life of every Jew, yet not necessarily well-known, are Kiddush Hashem – the precept of sanctifying the Name of God, and Chillul Hashem – the corresponding prohibition of profaning or desecrating His Name. As this class will illustrate, Kiddush Hashem is defined as the promotion of God in the world, demonstrating His omnipresence, His omniscience, His almighty power, and His sovereignty over humanity. In contrast, Chillul Hashem undermines the positive awareness of God in the world.
