"Davka" is one of those Hebrew/Yiddish words which have no real translation
into any other language. It means something like"on purpose", or "just so"
or, "just to spite". So what Shoshanna meant was "law it contains is
PRECISELY for the purpose of connecting ourselves with that holiness (and
not, as claimed, the opposite)".
