Comment of the day

">whenever Ramban uses language such as "sodos HaTorah", it is more often than not a hint at a Kabbalistic explanation<<

"Here's a better rule: Whenever someone says something is "al pi kaballah", it's becasue that something makes no sense, and the writer thinks that by asserting, with no proof, that something is "al pi kaballah', it is allowed to be nonsense. In other words, to any objective modern observer kaballah appears to be all but nonsense, but as orthodox Jews, we are forbidden to say so explicitly.
