G-d Is a Great Builder, But It’s Man’s Handiwork That Takes the Cake

 

“The Torah has a unique perspective on life. For an infinite G-d to create a home for finite man is not a big deal; however, for a finite man to create a home for an infinite G-d—that is a revolutionary notion. It constitutes the essential revolution of Judaism that from the fragmented pieces of our lives we can construct a home for G-d.

 

‘No man dies with half of his ambitions fulfilled,’ states the Midrash. This is the essence of the Tabernacle story – that a human being, through his or her minute and limited deeds, words and thoughts, is capable of creating a space in his or her heart for Hashem.”
