Adapting The Writings For The People

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: How can we revise the articles of Rabash and Baal HaSulam in a different language so that they will be understandable to the general public?

Answer: Re-tell them in your own words! Take a small article, read it, create a plan, and begin rewriting it, word by word.

This is how I rewrote The Book of Zohar, The Study of the Ten Sefirot, and the articles of Rabash. For example, I would take a certain article and replace words with different ones using vocabulary that is close to me, and then I would check every paragraph to see if it sounded correct as compared to the original, and it came out as a completely different text that seemed to be understandable and not as archaic as the original in a normal, modern, human language.

When writing through all this, you will see that there is nothing complicated there. There are special codes, but we already understand them. We need to adapt all the texts to ourselves and to the people so that, while reading them, they will feel that, let’s say, here is a little psychology and this is philosophy, and here it writes about biology, evolution, and so on. That is, they will see a healthy, normal approach to everything.

  1. This is a lovely and helpful idea for all of us. If, as we read and stud,y we try to think of ways to express these ideas in ways everyone can relate to, we help ourselves as well as others.
