Hebrew Dictionary - Metaphysics

First Covenant Foundation is happy to host this portal to some of the really remarkable Biblical essays of Ethan Dor-Shav. The author of Biblical Man's Soul of Fire (On our website, see Eternal Life, Soul of Fire, a somewhat condensed version), Ecclesiastes, Fleeting and Timeless, and, most recently, The Book of Job; a New Interpretation, among other works, he is an associate fellow of Jerusalem's Shalem Center. He lives in Jerusalem.

We can't say enough good about the work of Ethan Dor-Shav. We are not the only ones to call it "life-changing." But don't take our word for it; check it out for yourself.

Mankind cannot rise to the essential principles on which society must rest unless it meets with Israel. And Israel cannot fathom the deeps of its own national and religious tradition unless it meets with mankind. Eliyahu Benamozegh, Israel and Humanity (1901)

And God said to Adam: Behold My works! See how beautiful and commendable they are. All that I created, for your sake I created it. Pay heed that you do not corrupt and desolate My world,
for there is no one to repair it after you.

Midrash, Ecclesiastes Rabbah 7:28
