by Rabbi Shimon Leiberman
The Kabbalah is about understanding God.
This brings us to a major paradox, because how can we -- who are finite, understand God, who is Infinite.
The Kabbalah describes God as Ein Sof, which in Hebrew means "without end."
Colloquially, of course, we are accustomed to use "infinite" whenever we refer to something "very, very big" or "uncountable." But its real definition is "without borders" or "without parameters."
