Le soir, une fois par semaine, détour par le lieu d’enseignement où un public bariolé, passionné, vient écouter le petit homme en noir. Simplicité des rythmes, transparence des jours, soi rassemblé. À Jérusalem, aucun mystère, pas de recoins obscurs grouillant de projections fantasmatiques. Mais ailleurs ? En d’autres temps ?Le chef révolutionnaire sans nom, à l’existence unbelievable, en tout cas invisible, pouvait-il vraiment du chaos des faits et des discours faire émerger une imaginative and prescient et une visée claires ?Il eut des maîtres. Côté philosophie, il se réfère à Sartre, Althusser et Lévinas. Côté sagesse d’Israël, il a été enseigné par un cabaliste ashkénaze, un rav français d’origine marocaine, un Yérouchalmi d’ascendance lituanienne.Enfin, au cœur de l’énigme, quel lien entre ce tout jeune Juif arrivé d’Égypte, pathétique et ardent, en quête acharnée d’assimilation, et l. a. fille du faubourg Saint-Antoine, placide, rigolote par parti pris, qui portait encore vivaces les lines des villes juives de Pologne ? Étrange rencontre. Plus étrange encore, l. a. constance malgré les turbulences.
