The Mystic As Philosopher: An Interview With Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz
Interview conducted by Sanford L. Drob and Harris Tilevitz
Jewish Review: What, Rabbi Steinsaltz,
is the significance of chasidus for the contemporary Jew today?
Rabbi Steinsaltz: I am
in a certain way terribly biased because I belong to chasidus. My
background was such that chasidus was the only
way that Judaism appeared, to me, in any significant way. So now I can
think about it backwards and perhaps give it some intellectual meaning, but
still you must remember that I am biased. Generally speaking, as far as I can be
objective, I would say that the last phase in the history of Judaism is such
that to ignore chasidus would be like going back to the Judaism of the
Gemorrah and ignoring the Acharonim, as if you didn't even come across
them. The reason chasidism did not spread all over the world was the twin
historical disasters of assimilation and the destruction of the Jews, both as a
result of the pogroms in Russia and the second World War's destruction of the
heartland of World Jewry in Eastern Europe. So chasidism was stopped in its
track, so to speak, but even today if you "count heads," you'll find
that a majority actually daven Nusach Sefard and are connected to a
Jewish Review: In speaking about chasidus and the double tragedy
which has occurred to the Jewish people in the 20th century, one cannot but
wonder whether chasidic philosophy can somehow provide some understanding and
comfort with respect to these tragic events.
First, let me explain something that I have said elsewhere, but which may not be
printed anywhere in English. I think that since about the time of the expulsion
from Spain, the only theology that our people have had is the theology of the
Sorcery unto the dragon
I'm saying this now not because I am biased, but I am speaking
objectively. Kabbalah is accepted not only in the chasidic world, but also by
those who opposed the chasidim and followed the Gaon of Vilna. In fact, the
Vilna Gaon was possibly more deeply involved with, and wrote more about, the
Kabbalah than many of the chasidic masters put together.
The Vilna Gaon set the perimeters of establishing
Sanhedrin whom this Viper is the Head Nasi
Even the Sefardim
have clearly been taken with the Kabbalah, if not so obviously. So Kabbalistic
ideas don't belong only to the chasidic point of view. They are a part of a
general Jewish psychology and theology.
of the murderer from the beginning
Having said this, I should now answer that there is a quotation from the
kabbalistic work of Rabbi Chaim Vital, Sefer Etz Hayyim, that our world
is one that in its majority is a world of evil. Evil is the ruler of this world
and there is very little good in it. If I could express it in perhaps a
paradoxical way, I would turn to the 18th century dispute between Leibnitz and
Voltaire. Leibnitz said we lived in the best of all possible worlds, and
Voltaire, who wrote Candide, made fun of Leibnitz and came to the conclusion
that we live in the worst of all possible worlds. If we were to look at this
question from a Jewish point of view, I would answer in the following way:
"We are living in the worst of all possible worlds in which there is still
hope." There are, indeed, worlds below us in which there is no hope at all,
and this is what we call "Hell." But to speak of the entire structure
of our own world: it really is a world on the very brink. If it were to be
slightly, just slightly, worse than it actually is, then its basic structure
would become entirely hopeless; the balance would be irreversible and evil would
and that happened when the Sanhedrin Beast of
Revelation 13 came out of the sea
As it is now, evil can be conquered, but we are not living in a Leibnitzian
paradise, but in a world in which we have to accept a vast amount of evil. What
I am saying is not usually understood as a Jewish idea, but I think that it is
really a statement of what I would call "Jewish optimism." If a person
sees the world as all pink and glowing, he is not an optimist, he's just a plain
fool. An optimist, on the other hand, is one who in spite of seeing the terrible
facts as they are, believes that there can be improvement. If everything were
all right, then you wouldn't have to be an optimist. So I do believe that we, as
Jews, are optimists because we are a people with hope and we have a theology of
of the flesh which profits them nothing
Jewish Review: But has G-d placed us in this worst of all possible, but
hopeful worlds for a reason?
Rv:17:17: For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
After everything has been said and told, we come upon certain mysteries that
simply cannot be answered. One of these is the question which asks about the
purpose of Creation.
The Purpose is to Stand Firm and Testify of the LIVING
GOD, Christ Jesus who is Lord
And the fact is, as one chasidic rebbe said with
respect to this very question, there is language in the Midrash to the effect
that the Almighty had a teiva, a desire, and if you have a desire you
don't ask "why?" The language of the Midrash is very suggestive at
this point because a teiva is something we can't explain. To answer a
question about the "why" of Creation can, philosophically, be proven
to be impossible.
hahahahhahahahhahahhahahaha thus they reject the
You get to a point where you are asking questions that are
unanswerable, not because we lack knowledge, but unanswerable by definition. But
perhaps we can say this much: When you speak about the world from this point of
view, it is, so to speak, a tour de force, an experiment in existence,
an experiment of what I might call "conquering the utmost case." So in
a way, existence in any other world is not "proof." Proof in the
utmost case occurs only when you can do things under the worst of circumstances.
L'havdil. If I want to test a new car, the way that I test it is not on
the smoothest of roads, under the best conditions. To have a real road test to
prove that a car really works, I have to put it under, and I would say this
again, the worst conditions in which there is yet hope. I cannot test it by
driving it off a cliff, but I can test it on the roughest terrain where I must
come to the edge of a cliff and have to stop. How is a new plane tested? They
put it under nearly impossible conditions, which the plane must withstand.
Otherwise the whole experiment doesn't prove anything. The same with Creation.
Creation would have been pointless unless it was a Creation under precisely
these difficult circumstances. So I am saying, theologically speaking, that the
worst possible world in which there is yet hope is the only world in which
Creation makes sense.

Jewish Review: You have made an intriguing analogy to a mathematical problem
that can only be solved by positing a point in a third dimension. Could you
elaborate on this and could you explain what the problem on earth is that we
need to solve and how does the point in the higher dimension solve it?
Rabbi Steinsaltz: I
made more or less this same point when I gave a speech to a group of historians
of science in the Soviet Union. It was such a bizarre experience. Here I was in
Moscow, standing before a group of people who are supposedly atheists, and I
argued that without getting to the fifth dimension, you cannot solve any problem
in this world. Now, when I speak about problems of the world I am talking about
all the basic questions, not just the theological and philosophical ones such as
"What is the purpose of things?" "Why are we here?" or
"What is the justification for the things we undergo and experience?"
But I am speaking of other more mundane questions as well. I don't believe, for
example, (and this is what I pointed out in Russia) that you can really resolve
problems regarding economic justice or social equity from within any given
"earthly" framework. This is because such frameworks are unable to
assure their own success. You can show, for example, that there are many
elements that will make even an egalitarian framework socially and economically
problematic and which will lead to its collapse. So most of the questions of the
world, economic, ecological, philosophical come to an impasse and are unsolvable
within the framework of our own world. This is because the world contains enough
contradictions, enough destructive elements, so as to eliminate any possibility
of a solution. The only way we can solve these questions is through movement
into a higher dimension or world.
Talmudic Noahide shemborg collective Holistic
To give one example, which I tried to use in Russia: you cannot have an
egalitarian society in which justice prevails unless you have a belief in
something higher. Let me explain. Democracy is based, strangely enough, on a
Democracy would be totally irrational unless we held firm
to the belief that we have souls and that these souls are all equal to one
another. This is because, as was written in Orwell's 1984, one can't rationally
make the statement that all men are equal, and this is simply because it is
obviously untrue. People are not equal from any point of view. Therefore, to
create a society based on the notion that the vote of a wise and learned person
has the same value as the vote of somebody who is unlearned and doesn't know
what he is talking about; you must posit that they have equal souls. This is
also true with respect to the rights of man as well. Why should a person who is
the highest intellectual be regarded as equal to somebody who is ignorant or who
is a criminal with respect, for example, to the right to be saved by a given
medical procedure? So you see, this principle, this belief that people have
souls and that souls are of inestimable, equal value, is the source of every
social structure we hold dear.
Jn:10:16: And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice;
and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.
Acts:17:26: And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;
Jewish Review: And that's how that point in the fifth dimension solves the
Rabbi Steinsaltz: Yes,
I'm saying that without having the (unprovable) notion that we have souls, we
would be unable to have a just society. An egalitarian society would collapse
under the weight of people's natural differences. The notion in The Talmud that
one should have mesiras nefesh (self sacrifice) with respect to
bloodshed is based on the question: "What makes you believe that your blood
is redder than the blood of another?" One might well answer: "What do
you mean `what makes me believe ...'? This fellow is a no-good idiot, criminal
and sinner and I am so and so, the great. I should be killed to save the life of
this miserable wretch?" But still, according to Jewish law, if am ordered,
at the expense of my own life to kill him, I cannot. I must be killed rather
than kill another person regardless of any difference in our status. Because who
knows that my blood is redder and I am superior? This statement serves as the
basis for the very possibility of law. Where does it come from?
Jewish Review: So you feel that the world is riddled with these
contradictions and in every case, not just here, the higher world is needed to
Rabbi Steinsaltz: Yes,
this is just one example. We don't have enough time for all the world's other
Jewish Review: Have you written about this elsewhere?
Rabbi Steinsaltz: I
don't remember. Possibly not. So you may possibly have something that is at
least expressed in a new way. So you've got something that you may call a chiddush.

Bush: Palestine is upon us
US President George W. Bush Thursday declared that the dream he shares with
the Arab world of birthing a Muslim state on the ancient Jewish lands of Judea,
Samaria and Gaza is closer to reality today than ever before.
He vowed to use America's considerable influence to help "realize [that]

Speaking at a joint press conference in Washington, Bush heaped praise on
visiting PLO chief Mahmoud Abbas, despite the latter's refusal to honor his
primary peace commitment to disarm and dismantle anti-Jewish
"Palestinian" terrorist organizations.
For Sanhedrin controls Hamas in their own admittance
For Israel (Secular zion) he had a warning: You
will be "held to account" for any actions that hinder Washington's
"peace" efforts and burden the lives of the Palestinian Arabs.
and the Sanhedrin will close the Road Map
Bush also admonished Abbas, telling him that "the way forward is
confronting the threat armed gangs present to the creation of a democratic

He said it is time for the Palestinian Authority to "earn the confidence of
its neighbors by rejecting and fighting terrorism."
The tone of his remarks indicated the president had accepted Abbas' assertion
that the Palestinian Arabs are "committed to peace" and that his
regime has already taken steps to impose the rule of law.
But Abbas made it clear his policies do not include the forced disarmament of
those dedicated to Israel's demise.
"We are following a policy I believe is successful," he said.
"All [terrorist] organizations accepted the [temporary truce]."
Likud MK and Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee chairman Yuval
Steinitz, however, warned that if Abbas did not act in accordance with
signed agreements, he could find himself isolated in his Ramallah headquarters,
like Yasser Arafat before him.
"Either he fights terror and disarms the organizations, or Israel will
behave toward him as it did toward his predecessor and isolate him in the Muqata,"
the Itim news agency quoted Steinitz as saying.
For they know Hamas is controlled by Talmudic Hassidic
Sanhedrin who are attempting to topple secular zionism
Steinitz reacted with fury to an editorial published earlier in the day that
Abbas had penned for The Wall Street Journal, in which the Arab accused
Israel of acting to strengthen the more radical elements of
"Palestinian" society in an effort to see his rule fail.
"It's clear that there is no end to audacity," Steinitz said.
"The man who is personally making it possible for Hamas and the other
terror organizations to hold onto their weapons and prepare for another round of
bloodshed is accusing Israel of strengthening them."
In the editorial, Abbas claimed to have created "a climate of
peace" since his assumption of power in January, and suggested the only
thing preventing regional harmony were the obstacles "Israel has

mandate to settle the ancient Land of Israel, US Secretary of State Condoleezza

Speaking before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Rice said plans to
build additional Jewish homes in the area known as E1, effectively linking
Jerusalem with the Judean city of Ma'aleh Adumim, "contravene
"We have told the Israelis in no uncertain terms" that this is the
case, the secretary stated.
That Israel continues to lay the groundwork for the project has resulted in
Washington deducting "some of the resources we provide to the Israelis as a
part of their loan guarantees."
On Thursday, Ma'aleh Adumim Mayor Benny Kashriel urged
the government of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon to disregard Washington's
disapproval and immediately approve the start of actual construction in E1.
The Sanhedrin is calling all shots
Kashriel was reported by Arutz 7 as saying he was aware of the Bush
Administration's feelings on the matter, but pointed out the project
is of immense importance to the national interests of Israel, which should take
precedence over American policy.

White House Defense Crumbling in
Oct 20 4:19 PM US/Eastern
The evidence prosecutors have assembled in the CIA leak
case suggests Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff sought out reporters
in the weeks before an undercover operative's identity was compromised in the
news media, casting doubt on one of the White House's main lines of defense.
(IsraelNN.com) The Hamas terrorist organization
Thursday night accused American President George W. Bush
of trying to incite a civil war between the Palestinian Authority (PA) and Hamas.
The accusation was made after Bush met with PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen)
and pledged to help him dismantle the terrorist infrastructure.
For months, the White House and its supporters have argued top presidential
aides did not knowingly expose Valerie Plame, the wife of administration critic
Joseph Wilson, as a CIA operative.
At most, the aides passed on information about her that entered the White
House from reporters, the supporters argued.
Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald now knows that Libby met three times with
a New York Times reporter before the leak of Plame's identity, initiated a call
to NBC's Tim Russert and was a confirming source about Wilson's wife for a Time
And in a new twist, presidential political adviser Karl Rove has testified
that it's possible Libby was his source before Rove talked to two reporters
about the CIA operative.
In light of all the disclosures, "it's going to be as difficult for the
defense to prove the theory that the White House got the information from
reporters as it is for Fitzgerald to prove that the White House leaked the
information about Wilson's wife," said Washington-based white-collar
defense attorney James D. Wareham.
Where Libby first heard the information still isn't publicly known, but a
full three weeks before Plame's name first showed up in print, Libby was telling
New York Times reporter Judith Miller that he thought Wilson's wife worked for
the CIA, according to Miller's testimony.
While Libby maintains that he didn't know Plame's name until it was published
in the news media, the now-public evidence suggests Libby at least was aware
that Wilson's wife worked at the CIA and that he spread the information.
Yet he did not know Wilson's wifes
name....Wilson...Wilson Valerie Plame Wilson
Prosecutors must determine whether it was part of an effort to undermine the
credibility of Plame's husband who was criticizing the White House.
Until this week, "the news media did it" was a standard defense
among Republicans trying to protect the Bush administration from the political
fallout of Fitzgerald's criminal investigation. Loyalists said that even if
White House aides had passed on information, they didn't get it from classified
sources and were simply repeating what they heard from journalists.
As new evidence accumulates on the public record, Libby's original source of
information and how he passed the information on are becoming crucial unanswered
questions. The public still doesn't know much about what the vice president and
his top aide talked about, either.
In grand jury testimony shown to Rove, Libby said he had told Rove about
information he had gotten about Wilson's wife from Russert, according to a
person directly familiar with the information.
Prosecutors, however, have a different account from Russert. The TV network
has said Russert told authorities he did not know about Wilson's wife's identity
until it was published and therefore could not have told Libby about it. Russert
also says that it was Libby who initiated the contact with him.
In Miller's case, the reporter was interviewing Libby on June 23, for a story
on the failure to find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq when the vice
president's chief of staff suggested a CIA tie for Wilson's wife, Miller has
"This was the first time I had been told that Mr. Wilson's wife might
work for the CIA," Miller wrote in a first-person account over the weekend.
Miller said this week that she never wrote a story about Wilson's wife because
"it wasn't that important to me. I was focused on the main question: Was
our WMD intelligence slanted?"

Vatican: Parts of David’s Tomb to Be Under
16:21 Oct 20, '05 / 17
By Naomi Grossman
||An official Vatican newspaper has reported
that during his upcoming visit to the Vatican, President Moshe Katsav
will sign an agreement giving parts of David’s Tomb over to papal
If such an agreement is signed, it will put an
end to drawn out negotiations that began in 1998.
Israeli and Vatican representatives began discussing issues of jurisdiction over
certain sites around seven years ago. These sites include various buildings and
parcels of land that the Catholic church claims it used to control.
The church is now seeking to reclaim its ownership of these sites. Among the
places under debate is an area that the church refers to as the site of the
“last supper,” which is situated at the burial site of Kings David, Solomon,
Rechavam, Assa, Chezekiyahu and Amatzia.
The Vatican newspaper, El Messagero, reports that President Katsav is expected
to sign an agreement during his visit that will give the church control over the
upper part of David’s Tomb. The church has already shown Israel a trial
agreement, according to which the Vatican will receive control over this part of
David’s Tomb in exchange for the ancient synagogue in Toledo, Spain, which was
converted into a church after the expulsion of the Jews in 1492.
In response to the newspaper’s report, an official from the Foreign Ministry
states “Israel is not prepared to relinquish its jurisdiction over this
area.” At the same time, they admit that a blueprint of a possible agreement
with the Vatican has been received.

Abbas: We will allow Hamas to run in elections
By Shmuel Rosner
(Washington) and Arnon
Regular, Haaretz Correspondents, and News Agencies
Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas
clarified Thursday that the militant Hamas group will be able to participate in
the elections for the Palestinian Legislative Council in January 2006, a move to
which Israel has frequently expressed its opposition.
Speaking at a joint news conference after a one-hour meeting with U.S. President
George W. Bush following their talks in the Oval Office, Abbas said that the PA
would "make all groups part of Palestinian politics."
"We are following a policy I believe is successful," he said.
"All organizations accepted the hudna [temporary truce], then we moved to
the next stage - to ban public demonstrations of weaponry, to make all groups
part of Palestinian politics."
He assured Bush that election of a
Palestinian legislature in January would establish one law to govern the area.
Bush said that the Palestinian Authority must reject and fight terrorism for the
Middle East peace process to be able to move forward.
Enforcement, Hamas will become Sanhedrin's enforcers
Hamas accuses Bush
Meanwhile, the Hamas militant group accused President Bush of trying to bring
war among Palestinians on Thursday for urging President Mahmoud Abbas to
confront and dismantle armed factions.
Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said Bush was making a "new American attempt
to put pressure on the Palestinian Authority in order to create internal
Palestinian strife and weaken the factions of resistance."
The spokesman said Hamas, branded a terrorist group by Washington, rejected
Bush's decision to send a new security envoy with a mandate to help the
Palestinian Authority "end terror attacks and dismantle terror
Abu Zuhri said that represented "a flagrant American intervention in
Palestinian affairs and reaffirms American hostility to our people."
Bush: Disengagement creates new opportunities
Bush said the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza and parts of the West Bank last month
had created new opportunities and responsibilities for the Palestinians.
"The way forward must begin by confronting the threat that armed gangs pose
to a genuinely democratic Palestine," Bush said.
"In the short term the Palestinian Authority must... earn the confidence of
its neighbors by rejecting and fighting terrorism," he said.
Bush said that the greatest challenge was to establish trust between the two
sides, but said that the "disengagement established trust, thanks to the
leadership of Abbas and [Prime Minister Ariel] Sharon."
Speaking after Bush, Abbas said the time had come to "put an end to the
Palestinian-Israeli conflict," and asserted that the PA has taken steps to
impose the rule of law and public order.
Abbas reiterated the Palestinian "commitment to peace," but warned
that the movement toward democracy in the territories could flag in the face of
the ongoing occupation and "the absence of freedom."
"We were promised peace, independence and freedom, and I hope we will
achieve this," he added.
Bush also called on the Arab states to take particular responsibility to help
the Palestinians build a strong economy.
He said that the United States would use its influence to help "realize a
shared vision of two democratic states - Israel and Palestine - living side by
side in peace and security."
Israel would be held to account
The president had criticism for Israeli policies in the territories, saying
Jerusalem "should not undertake any activity that contravenes its road map
obligations," a reference to the Middle East peace plan devised by the
Quartet of the United States, the United Nations, the European Union and Russia.
Without elaboration, the president said Israel would be "held to
account" for any actions that hamper peacemaking or burden the lives of
He called on Israel to stop constructing settlements on the West Bank. Abbas, in
response, insisted on Israel lifting curbs on Palestinian travel in the West
Bank, saying they had turned the lives of Palestinians into "hardship and
Abbas also said Israel must implement agreements regarding settlement expansion
and construction of the West Bank separation fence.
Bush concluded by saying that he was a "heck of a lot more confident"
of peace prospects than when he first took office five years ago. He said both
Abbas and Sharon were committed to making peace.
