Lofty every day life

That we could “achieve the simplicity that Martin Buber encountered in three rabbis from a Yiddishland that has now vanished:

“‘They spoke about lofty things, very lofty things, but also about the day’s events.  About the lofty things they spoke as though they were events that might take place in their neighborhood, and about this-worldly events they spoke as though they were woven of some celestial material.  In between, they fell silent, but these silences were made up of their common presence.'”

from: The Resurrection by Fabrice Hadjadj
