That we may become holy

"Before the person called to the Torah recites his own blessing, the entire congregation is reminded that the Law of God, the Holy One, was given us in order that we, too, may become holy, that it affords us instruction, wisdom, serenity, and enlightenment for all the concerns and desires of our souls, that it seeks to inure us against all temptation and that it is designed to cause us to dwell together in peace by teaching all of us to live in harmony with our God." Hirsch Siddur, p. 186.
