Therein lies the beauty of Judaism.
In this week’s parsha, G-d says to Moshe that He has revealed himself to the Patriarchs, has understood their travails, and will rescue them. How great is our hope, and how deep is our trust?
We prey to a Deity whose name we can’t pronounce and can’t read. Our G-d is accessible and simultaneously inaccessible. G-d wishes for our embrace, but who will all too easily slip from our grasp.
It takes faith and concentration to get our hands around something which resists holding. Even more so to embrace it with our minds.
Vaera…and I (G-d) appeared. Every generation gives us a unique connection to G-d. Let us make that connection anew, and strengthen it with each passing of the years.
