  1. Interesting, so the presence of G-d can manifest to a youth, then. There were instances in Torah that chronicles these encounters, yes? Like Samuel. Samson. Moses. I was 12 when I felt a tangible nudging, so to speak. Such life-threatening challenges to young people would seem so unfair (reminiscent of the binding of Isaac, how old was he when that happened), but that presence is much more evident when children are the central vessel of transmission. I’ve said that a lot to myself since i was a teenager: “It’s not fair. Your fashioning hurts. Why?” But, I suppose, it is (honest because it can feel like prodding), in the context of a “covenant relationship”
