The greatest spirits of Judaism have known darkness. We read about depression in such spiritual titans as Maimonides and Rebbe Nahman. But in the end, each rose to a height that dwarfed the depth. The sin is not sadness, but despair; not pain, but the conviction that pain has the final word. In the evening there will be weeping, writes the Psalmist, but joy will come in the morning. And morning is upon us.
