n Passover the afiko-
men is hidden. On
Shavuot, seven weeks
later, the attention is focused
upon revelation. The two fes-
tivals are related as are
hiding and revealing. What
do we hide from ourselves and
what may we hope to
discover?
• Seeing their nakedness,
Adam and Eve fled from be-
fore the presence of the Lord.
"And the Lord God called
unto the man, and said unto
him, "where art thou?"
• When Jonah heard the
voice telling him to go forth
and to prophesy to the people
of Nineveh he hid himself in
the gray womb of the whale.
• The Rizhiner Rebbe
noted his child crying, and
asked him why the tears. His
son answered, "Because I
have been playing hide-and-
seek." "But that's no reason
to cry," said the rebbe. "It is,
Papa. I was hiding, but no-
body was seeking." The game
is a metaphor either for a hid-
den God whom no one seeks,
or an abandoned hidden
human forgotten.
• A legend: when the an-
gels heard that God was go-

Rabbi Schulweis is the spiritual
leader of Valley Beth Shalom
congregation in Encino,
California.

ing to create the image of His
own being and breathe the
breath of His life into it, the
angels conspired with each
other to hide the image of
Divinity. One angel proposed
to put the divine image on top
of the mountain. A second
proposed to hide it at the bot-
tom of the sea. But the wiliest
angel of all said, "Let us hide
it by placing it within man
and woman for that is the last
place they will think of look-
ing for it."
The tradition knows that
human beings are hiders, for-
ever looking for getaways,
whether through work or
leisure, in health or in sick-
ness. For the concealers there
are endless excuses; appoint-
ments, clients, customers, in-
vestments, jogging, dieting,
bleaching and dyeing. For the
hiders there are mountains
and seashores and cathedrals
and museums to which one
may escape in style. And
there are committees and
commissions and organiza-
tions in which to drown that
crucial first question posed in
the Bible: Ayecha? Where art
thou? Who art thou?
So cleverly do men and
women hide that when the
question does emerge, they
pretend it is the bank teller
who is asking. They search
their wallets and produce
social security numbers,
driver's licenses, credit cards.
They confound identification
with identity.
