Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz: “A genetic mutation”

Each one of the holidays forms an engraving in reality.

This engraving is not just a memory, the impression made by a past event, but is an actual change in our reality, which as a result is no longer as it once was.

To borrow an analogy from another sphere, each holiday creates a genetic mutation within the Jewish People.

–Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz
