Let My People Know

Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz: “We would be immolated.”

It is precisely in this world, in a state of unawareness, that we are so close to God.

Other states may be more spiritual, and we may be more aware in them, but we are not as close.

Right now, we are carrying out the greatest acts and are in the strongest light, and consequently now is the time when we do not see.

This is because if we sensed even a small part of what we were doing, we would be immolated.
