Dear Mark, for me the outward Torah observances aren’t as important as the inner light of each mitzvot which can be expressed in differing outward observances in different cultures. For someone who is a Jew God himself has given us acts or mitzvot in order to express that inner light of God’s Will in the concrete physical world. For me then it is the spiritual/mystical dimension of tikkun (repair or reparation) that is the most important and the focus of my life as a Jew and as a Catholic. Don’t know if I have shared this essay with you but if very central for understanding my thought.
