touch (tamuz 29 5765)

the maor eynayim sums up all of creation as follows: a fruit tastes sweet only to teach us that the godliness within the fruit is sweet. similarly, in order for a rav to teach a student, he must clothe his ideas in metaphors that the student's mind can comprehend and digest. this is exactly how hashem relates to us.
