“In the folk tales that the world tells, there are many hidden things and very lofty matters.” (Rebbe Nachman of Breslov)
The Grail represents the sefira Malchut: the cup, the container allowing the Divine Presence to reveal itself in the world.
“Quest for the Grail” is called “Chipus A’har HaGavia HaKadosh” in Hebrew.

YHVH is One
