(Rabbi Menachem Mendel from Kotsk)
Two Talmudic “Midrashim” (religious allegories) tell the story of two loving couples. Between these two couples stands a pomegranate.
The married couple, Rabbi Chiya and his wife, do not have sexual relations.
The second couple takes the risk of a marriage offer which is rejected. The two couples experience a moment of internal and passionate awakening which will change their lives.
These are two stories about the fear of intimacy – with myself and with the other. Stories about gracious moments of agreement to be free, to meet myself without masks.
