Someone once asked Rabban Gamliel where God could be found. “You’ve asked me something much too abstract,” said Rabban Gamliel; “let me ask you about something that’s very close to you each and every day” he said, “and ask you where it is”. “And what would that be?” the other asked. “The soul, which is with you all the time” Rabban Gamliel offered “– just where is it?” (Shocher Tov 103).
Indeed, just where is the soul?
