Amos Oz, a renowned Israeli author, once remarked, "Fundamentalists live life with an exclamation point. I prefer to live my life with a question mark." The rabbis turned the text and turned it again. They delighted in reading the Bible with question marks to discover not just what the Bible meant but what it continues to mean. They entered into dialogue with the text and added another voice in the room. And it was from these voices and question marks that they wrote midrashim.
