All My Grace: The True-But-Seemingly-Impossible Account of Supernatural Messages from the Virgin Mary to a Jewish, Ultra-Orthodox Rabbi!

2013 Quote About the Rabbi from the Retired Archbishop of Canterbury

Lord Rowan Williams is the retired Archbishop of Canterbury (before His Grace’s retirement, it was he who married second-in-line-to-the-British-throne Prince William to Catherine Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge and Princess of the United Kingdom). In 2013, Lord Williams wrote the following to Rabbi Gruber:

Dear Chaim:

Thank you for the posters [about peace]—full of sustenance for the mind and soul. I very much warmed especially to the idea of peace as “toward and from”[*], and . . . I shall be using this (with acknowledgement!).

My prayers and warm good wishes as ever.

In peace,

Rowan

* The following is a close quote from the mentioned, educational art-poster, created by Rabbi Gruber, which explained a linguistic basis of Hebrew’s word for peace: “Hebrew is read from the right and every Hebrew letter has a meaning. Ancient teachings reveal that these letters reflect Creation; that is, the letters are the building blocks by which a Hebrew word achieves an intuitive meaning . . . ‘Peace,’ in Hebrew, spelled by four letters (שלום), is pronounced shalom. Shalom’s first letter (ש) means ‘which is’; its second (ל), ‘toward’; its third (ו), ‘and’; and its last (ם), ‘from.’ Analyzed by these letters, ‘peace’ equals, ‘which is – toward – and – from.’ This describes one of peace’s fundamentals, which is a free allowance of backs and forths. In contrast, when at war, one only ventures out with a risk. After all, if so daring, one might not return!”
