Let My People Know

Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz: “Beyond knowing.”

Chokhmah ( Wisdom) is the mysterious point within our being, one that we can neither perceive nor understand.

It is beyond the realm of what can be perceived, although it is the source of human perception, emotion, and living awareness.

For this reason, chokhmah is our internal vessel that clothes the light of Ein Sof, that transcends the thoughts of any created being.

It is axiomatic that whatever thought can perceive is not the light of Ein Sof.

If it is at all possible, then, for this Godly energy to become revealed, it is at the very point in the soul that itself is beyond knowing.

—Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz
