“The mundane, esoteric, sacred, picaresque, staggering details contain a map of the Divine mind. Torah is always more unruly, less orderly and neat, than I’d like it to be. It dwells on the particulars of human life, something I would rather avoid in favor of the rarified heights of philosophy. But there’s that too, in the Holy One’s inimitable manner of speaking.”
