    How about "Hear, O Israel: The L-rd is our G-d; the L-rd is one." (Deut. 6:4)

    "This G-d is one. He is not two or more, but one, unified in a manner which [surpasses] any unity that is found in the world; i.e., He is not one in the manner of a general category which includes many individual entities, nor one in the way that the body is divided into different portions and dimensions. Rather, He is unified, and there exists no unity similar to His in this world. ... The knowledge of this concept fulfills a positive commandment, as implied by Deuteronomy 6:4." Maimonides Book of Knowledge

    "It is a foundation of our faith to believe that G-d is One and that He is a most perfect and absolute Unity." It's the second of Judaism's 13 Principles, and a tough bullet to bite.

    The modal collapse objection has teeth ...
