À la vie by Léo Levy

By Léo Levy

Ce livre est l. a. relation d’un parcours – celui de Benny Lévy – à travers l. a. voix de sa femme Léo, un itinéraire où les exigences de l. a. pensée et les gestes quotidiens s’ajustent au plus près, alliant à l’extrême rigueur un généreux amour de l. a. vie.«Dans los angeles lumière sans complaisance des matins de Jérusalem, trois stations : l. a. maison, l. a. maison de prière, l. a. maison d’étude. 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 inconceivable, 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 los angeles fille du faubourg Saint-Antoine, placide, rigolote par parti pris, qui portait encore vivaces les strains des villes juives de Pologne ? Étrange rencontre. Plus étrange encore, los angeles constance malgré les turbulences.
