Torah study

The side of holiness is nothing but the indwelling and extension of Hashem’s holiness. Now, Hashem dwells only on that which is surrendered to Him, whether actual surrender as is the case with the supernal angels, or whether potential surrender, as in the case of every Yid here below in this physical world, who has the capacity for surrendering himself completely before Hashem, through martyrdom for the sanctification of Hashem’s Name. That is why our Sages have said that “if even one individual sits and engages in Torah study, the Divine Presence rests upon him.”

(Tanya Chapter 6)
