    The fire was not major and Schichita is to resume shortly.

    Wouldn’t it be easier to just follow the line of reasoning proposed by Nachmanidies and the Vilna Goan themselves: that the process of creation is a mystery and that the Torah true answer is “we don’t know how it was done.” Even Rashi says the six days of creation were a different frame of reference from what came after. It would jive much better with the “operational science line.” After all, one could simply say: “I believe God created the universe, but I don’t know how. Science tells me how it works.” When asked: “how old do you believe the universe is?” The honest answer remains: I don’t know, but it appears to be very very old – which is not immediately relevant to my faith or my life.
