Kiddush hashem (Hebrew: ×§×™×“×•×© ×”×©×; "sanctification of the name of God") is a precept of Judaism as expressed in the Torah for any Jew to: "To sanctify His Name" , and conversely not to bring dishonor or shame to God's name which is known as Chillul Hashem: "Not to profane His Name" . Thus any action by a Jew that brings honor, respect, and glory to God is considered to be a Kiddush Hashem, whereas any behavior or action that disgraces, harms or shames God and his Torah is regarded as a Chillul Hashem which means a "desecration of God".
