This is my God and I will anvehu (Exodus 15)
While the simple meaning of anvehu is probably a vague sense of worship or exaltation, it's been used as the base for two important rabbinic teachings: having beautiful things, and acting like God.
This shiur, in a sense, was an attempt to explore both of those teachings, look at the radical idea of 'Me' as a divine name, and eventually to integrate the two of them into a single theo-aesthetic concept. Well, that's what I tried to do, at least!
