FACES: AN AFTERWORD, an excerpt, by Rabbi Harold Schulweis

Moses sought to see the face of God but he could not. Instead, he was placed on a rock near God and told, "And it shall come to pass while My glory passeth by that I will put thee in a cleft of the rock and I will cover thee with My hand until I have passed by. And I shall take away My hand and thou shalt see My back but My face shall not be seen"(Exodus 33). God promised to make "all My goodness pass before you."

In Hebrew there is no singular term for face. A face-panim-is always plural. There is more in these faces than meets the eye. Look at their faces and you see the traces of godliness, the lineaments of the likeness of divinity.
