Shabbat shalom

Shabbat shalom

Of course God is the “wholly Other”; but God is also the wholly Same, the wholly Present. Of course God is the Mysterium Tremendum that appears and overthrows; but God is also the mystery of the self-evident, nearer to me than my I.

Martin Buber, I and Thou, Translated by Ronald Gregor Smith, Scribner Classics, 2000 (1956), 80.
