Positive Mitzvah 212: To Be Fruitful and Multiply
Genesis 1:28 "Be fruitful and multiply"
HaShem created the world for people to live in.
He wants the Jewish nation to grow and expand, ensuring the future of many generations of people to follow the Torah.
This Positive Mitzvah commands us to have children.
Ultimately, the waters cannot drown the soul, but only lift it above them -- for, in truth, this is the purpose for which they were created.
