Let My People Know

Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz: “The right words simply do not exist.”

There are some fundamental gulfs that are impossible to bridge.

Nothing can be said to get one’s ideas across; any attempts to do so would be meaningless.

The problem of how to talk about the incomprehensible, how to describe what cannot be described, is a problem that has no solution.

At the point of transmitting the essence, there is a curtain that blocks the audience’s view.

It is not a matter of finding the right words, because the right words simply do not exist.

–Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz
