Let My People Know

Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz: “The divine victory.”

The existence of the world is, as it were, God’s endeavor to receive a signal, a message from another.

The entire framework of creation is built to this end, to transmit that message.

Ultimately, the fact that someone below answers Him, that God receives a signal from man saying, “You, God, exist,” means that the message has been successfully transmitted from one end of existence to the other.

This expresses the divine victory, which floods all of existence with light.
