"Lashon Hakodesh / Holy Language"

The Torah was given in 70 languages. What makes any of them holy? How do the forms of Hebrew script embody the Torah as blueprint of the Universe? How does Hebrew relate to Yiddish, Ladino, and other Jewish languages? What is "debate for the sake of heaven" and how do we handle disagreement? What are the consequences of Torah having multiple interpretations? How do we communicate in sacred ways in community, using the power of speech with care? Who gets the authority and opportunity to speak, hear, and teach the language of Torah? All this and more as we move through the deepening night, heading toward dawn.
