In his reprise of The Wisdom of Solomon, Rabbi Rami Shapiro once again tackles his favorite book in the Tanakh, Ecclesiastes. Unlike The Wisdom, this book is a more literal translation of the original text. In The Wisdom, Shapiro wrote (his own interpretation) of the essence of the text, the total impermanence of everything; the passing away of things in the world. For Shapiro, Koheleth is an investigation into the very nature of reality itself, which is completely unstable. This instability, when viewed correctly, should not be a source of anxiety, but a release. By freeing people of the false need for stability, they can live closer to reality. They can understand that all things come and pass away.
