“He found her in the field. The maiden cried out, but there was no one to hear.”—Deuteronomy 22:27

Rabbi Menachem Mendel of Lubavitch explained:

Captured by Esau, a brute of the field, raped and abused by this crazy world and its maddening temptations, the soul cries and screams for rescue.

And no one hears.

No one. Nothingness. The Nothingness from which everything begins. Not just the Source of All Being, but the core essence of G‑d, beyond all being. There, her cry is heard.

The screams of a fair maiden stir her hero to overcome mighty armies and slay awesome giants; so too, the cries of the soul from her captivity reach to the core of the Infinite Above.

Out of Nothingness, anything could happen.
