The previous lectures established a spiritual thesis about human consumption; eating is the most profound medium to elevate the otherwise mundane elements of creation. Utilizing energies garnered from meal-times to perform acts of spirituality or loving kindness transforms whatever was eaten; thus releasing sparks of holiness, and “fixing our broken world.” But how is that reflected in Passover’s Matzah or the traditional Shabbat dishes, which presumably nourish our souls regardless of what’s done afterwards. How can food itself be sacred?
