  1. Danny,
    I have not been blessed to meet you yet but I have heard so many wonderful things. It also struck me that the high Priest wore a large rimon on his head that said Kadosh L'Adonai-- holy to God. When he put it on, its heaviness reminded him of the heaviness of the position. As well, the people saw the words on his head ever imprinted. It is as if the priest were wearing the heavy silver Kadosh L'Adonai, even when he was not. Think of wearing a pair of socks all day- when you take them off, there is a ring around your calf until the skin retains its original shape and then we put a sock on again. The message on the crown reminded not only the high priest that he was holy but, the people who orally told our tradition and knew that we were created B'zelem Adonai. We like the priest, have the words etched in our head. Often we remember them for ourselves, but more importantly, we need to see them on every soul- the people who work in our supermarkets- our kids teachers. We are all Kadosh L'Adonai- Holy for God and Holy to God.
