I will be appearing as a guest on Rabbi Daniel Lapin’s radio show this coming Sunday evening, at 8PM Pacific Time. You can tune in and listen right on your computer.
I had breakfast with Rabbi Lapin earlier this week and thoroughly enjoyed every minute with this brilliant, articulate Rav and social thinker. Here is a man who is blessed with a restless, insatiable intellect. I urge all Seraphic Secret readers to look into Rabbi Lapin’s organization Towards Tradition, and support its important and fine work.
Whenever I am in the company of someone wise and thoughtful, inevitably I will talk about Ariel. I probe, trying to extract some hidden knowledge that might make it easier for Karen and I to cope with Ariel’s death. And so, when I asked Rabbi Lapin a series of questions about death, about life after death, he gave me a sad and honest look and told me that he had no answers. Oddly enough, this answer satisfies me, for in spite of my yearning for explanations, I know, deep down, that all answers signify nothing but a vast ignorance. There are worlds within worlds and they will forever be hidden from us. Rabbi Lapin recognizes this. He is too wise and too kind to say otherwise.
