The Torah's textual anomalies


"Based on our elders, as they guided us in paths of righteousness and taught us, we contemplate and measure the holy statements and analyze in our holy Torah every instance of absent and excessive imprecision. These are the windows of the heavens, for through them we may look and gaze at the good, hidden, hinted-at light which is not meant to be recorded explicitly."

(R' Menachem Mendel of Rimanov, Menachem Tziyyon to Parshat Vayyetze)

Have a great day,
