Daily Teachings of The Baal Shem Tov:
“The Maggid [of Mezeritch] taught: The Baal Shem Tov often used to say that love of the Jewish people is the same thing as love of G-d. The verse states, You are children unto the Lord, your G-d. When one loves the father, one loves the children.”
(HaYom Yom, p. 81)
