What people are looking for

What people are looking for is how to create a sense of occasion, of something special.

Sometimes their faith gives them an open page of gemara in the beis hamidrash, and the schinah all around, or chanting the names of G-d in community...the richness or poverty of a culture is the channels it offers, and how stunted or evolved those channels are...
