My middle brother is Bob Freedman, a Rabbi and Cantor. In a study session together he told me about the creation story in the Kabbalah (a famous mystical Jewish text) . It is said that at first the world emanated as light from the Source, but there was a cosmic accident and the vessel holding the light of God was shattered and scattered into an infinite number of holy sparks. Life’s purpose is to uncover these sparks and restore the world to its wholeness through compassion.
