Let My People Know

Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz: “God places questions before us.”

When a father asks his son difficult questions and the son answers them, the father rejoices.

So, too, God places questions before us, the most significant and primary of which is “Where am I?”

To answer that question, a person must struggle with a succession of obstacles, misdirections, entanglements, and hindrances before he can ultimately reply, “You are here.”
