Like modern scientists, Jewish mystics of the thirteenth century said that in the beginning there was nothing—nothing, that is, except the “divine nothingness,” the hidden, transcendent God. The God of Genesis who “created the heaven and the earth” was not even manifest. The term the mystics used to describe God before creation was ''[[Ein Sof]]''. ''Ein Sof'' means “without end,” or “the Infinite.” ''Ein Sof'' is the First Cause. It is ultimate reality—unmanifest, incomprehensible and indescribable.

From the edge of the vacuum, ''Ein Sof'' issued a ray of light that launched all of creation. The sequence of events is complicated but, in essence, Ein Sof's light manifested ten divine emanations. Each emanation was to be preserved in a special vessel. Some of these vessels, however, were unable to hold that light and consequently shattered. As a result sparks of divine light, along with shards of the vessels, scattered, giving birth to the material world.
