Yom Kippur special: unlikely resonances

October 8, 2011

“Language is the house of Being. In its home man dwells. Those who think and those who create with words are the guardians of this home.”

Heidegger, “Letter on Humanism”

“Creation is the language of God, Time is His song, and things of space the consonants of His song. To sanctify time is to sing the vowels in unison with him.”

Heschel, The Sabbath
