The naturalistic and fantastical approaches to conceptualizing the nature of the manna points to the recurrent Jewish impulse to interpret, both in terms of the Torah’s plain meaning, and in terms that will inspire spiritual seeking.

We can work together to bring about a real tikkun olam , healing of our broken world so that future generations will bless the work of our hands.

What does it mean to make oneself like a wilderness? Unlike private property, in the ownerless wilderness there are no walls and no gatekeepers. It is a place of uncertainty and expansiveness, of majesty and possibility. When we make ourselves like a wilderness, we open our hearts and minds to being changed by what we encounter.

The “iffy” nature of our being, and our ability to heal and hurt, commit and flee, follow and rebel is a challenge to the divine cosmic constant. To stay in relationship and maintain connection with hopefulness and forgiveness, we need to also make space for health, anger and acknowledging fear.
