comment Why does belief in Judaism require irrationality?
judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/47487/… "jewish-centric perspective"? are you asking according to the view that Judaism is true or that Judaism is false? if the former, then I believe your question has been answered.

comment Why does belief in Judaism require irrationality?
@user6641 to summarize I think your assumption is incorrect. the precepts of judaism all have a rational explanation to a great extent. though we cannot fully understand anything just like we cannot fully understand any of His divine wisdom such as a leaf or even a cell despite that we can delve quite deeply. the reason we cannot fully understand it is not because it is irrational but rather because the depth of wisdom is infinite
