"To me, religions are like languages:
no language is true or false; all languages are of human origin; each language reflects and shapes the civilization that speaks it; there are things you can say in one language that you cannot say or say as well in another; and the more languages you learn, the more nuanced your understanding of life becomes.
Judaism is my mother tongue, yet in matters of the spirit I strive to be multi-lingual.
In the end, however, the deepest language of the soul is silence.“
Rabbi Rami Shapiro
