There is a Kabbalistic take on the first scenario that we have in Genesis which we begin this Shabbat. The world was created as a paradise, but the caveat was that the Almighty was the King and the human was the servant. The temptation for the human, however, was to think of himself as the center of this paradise and God as the servant. After all, wasn’t all this created for him? But it was too much of a stretch for the human to honestly imagine himself as the center of the universe in his original lowly state so he was persuaded to eat from the Tre of Knowledge. This elevated him to the point where he could begin convincing himself that indeed he was on the top of the company ladder.


He of course was chastised and then became contrite, but the damage was done. The seeds were sown for all future failures, the eventual source of idol worship, the ultimate goal of which is the denial of the supreme deity and the placing of oneself at the head of the pantheon.


Congratulations to Professor Sylvan Cappell for his upcoming induction into the American Academy of Arts and Sciences this weekend.
