Let My People Know

Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz: “God rejoices.”

God, as it were, rejoices that man believes in Him.

When a human being-imprisoned within the body, unable to see divinity, and living in a society that denies the divine- realizes that God stands at his side, God rejoices, and man takes part in that joy.

Man therefore possesses a double joy: his own in that he is near God, and God’s as well.

–Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz
