How do we look at the revelation of God’s light? Of His wisdom in the world? How do we relate to it personally? What does it feel like? How can we express it or learn about it from others?
Rabbi Ashlag’s great essay on the essence of Torah and Kabbalah teaches us that the great Sages used language as vessels for the repository of Divine language: the language of the Tanach, the Bible; the language of Halachah, Jewish Law; the language of Aggadah, the folktales; and the language of Kabbalah.
Kabbalah is a language— one of connections between this world and the higher worlds, connecting every branch with its root. As we learn Kabbalah, we too can learn our soul’s connection with its Maker.
