This Name of God - horribly misused and distorted - is very well known. But our task in life is, as Moshe's was, to learn the other Name of God, to learn the Name that unites us, the Name that brings peace and redemption. We must use God's Name for positive purposes, to grow, to build up ourselves and our nation. ¶ My dear chassan and kallah, how fortunate you are that you and your families understand and appreciate the example of the positive Shem Hameforash. God has granted you great qualities and abilities - an appreciation for Torah and its study, a sensitivity to the need for charity and kindness, great intelligence which has allowed you to reach significant heights in your chosen fields of interest, and a sense of communal responsibility - all of which you both have learned from your respective parental homes. You know what it means to act positively and constructively for the benefit of the Jewish people, and to do so reflecting the Name of God. (from Conclusion)
