“… the Messianic end of days … will give back to [humanity] what a thing in space, the Tower of Babel, had taken away. It was the vision of the Messianic day in which the hope of restoring the unity of all [humanity] was won.”
Abraham Joshua Heschel, The Sabbath (New York: Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 1979) 79.
