I. Introduction

Introduced and Translated by Adaya Henis, February 1970


For my family


“Where is the dwelling of God?” This was the question with which the Rabbi of Kotzk surprised a number of learned men who happened to be visiting him.

They laughed at him “What a thing to ask! Is not the whole world full of his glory?”

Then he answered his own question: “God dwells wherever man lets him in.”
