God introduced the Ten Commandments with the words "Anochi - Havaya - Elokecha - Asher Hotzeiticha Mei'Eretz Mitzrayim Mibeit Avadim." "I am the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, the house of slavery." Understood this way, the sentence is a basic introduction to the fundamental guiding principles of this same God. Consider reading the words like this: "I am 'Anochi'; I am also 'Havaya'; moreover, I am 'Elokecha'; and by descending through this process, I am "the one who brought you out of the Land of Egypt." This opens up the possibility of finding a different understanding of God's identity and the process whereby His Essence was revealed to this world. In The Anochi Project: Seeking God's Identity, Paul M. Hamburger analyzes all 141 references to Anochi in the Torah and finds a deeper understanding of how we can relate to God's Essence and how God wants to relate to us. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Paul M.
