Quote of the Day

“The Law is our treasure, in which we rejoice. It is a hidden treasure because the deepest spiritual meaning is as yet not made perfectly clear to us. Yet one thing we know: it is the revelation of G-d, and this makes it very precious to us. But the day will come when the divine mysteries of the Law will be unfolded by the Messiah, and we shall see G-d face to face. Then our souls will be filled with delight.”

Paul Philip Levertoff, “Love and the Messianic Age,” pg. 58.

About Rabbi Joshua

I'm a Rabbi, writer, thinker, mountain biker, father and husband ... not necessarily in that order. According to my wife, however, I'm just a big nerd. I have degrees in dead languages and ancient stuff. I have studied in various Jewish institutions, including an Orthodox yeshiva in Europe. I get in trouble for making friends with perfect strangers, and for standing on chairs to sing during Shabbos dinner. In addition to being the Senior Rabbi of Simchat Yisrael Messianic Synagogue in West Haven, CT, I write regularly for several publications and speak widely in congregations and conferences. My wife is a Southern-fried Jewish Beltway bandit and a smokin' hot human rights attorney... and please don’t take offense if I dump Tabasco sauce on your cooking.

    Toda raba! for posting this… I've been a goy interested in Chasidic Jewish life since living in NYC, then, as a Holocaust educator, mesmerized by life in the pre-Shoah Jewish shtetl. I just finished the book by Levertoff and will likely order the commentary. This was a present sudden presence in my day!
