"You Shall Spread Out"
He encapsulated his outreach activity in the slogan of "Uforatzto" (Heb. ופרצת) "you shall spread out."

Famous quotes containing the word spread:
“Isolate city spread alongside water,
Posted with white towers, she keeps her face
Half-turned to Europe, lonely northern daughter,
Holding through centuries her separate place.”
