Let My People Know

Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz: “The ultimate truth.”

It may be said that the existence of the world is meaningful only by virtue of the fact that someone is aware of it.

But since God is the ultimate truth, the world’s existence is confirmed by His awareness and not mine.

At the same time, this does not in itself prove the existence of God.

We cannot grasp the reality of His Existence.

It is a quality beyond us.

And, of course, we cannot prove His existence by pointing to the world, which exists because of Him, or by the fact of our own existence in the world.

The Divine is something on an entirely different dimension of reality.

–Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz
