The people of Israel have undergone a great deal of turmoil and so many states from the time they became a people. Throughout history, our people went through persecution and wars, descents, ascents, and exiles.
But undoubtedly one of the most tragic, most significant events in our nation’s history actually occurred during the Second World War with the rise of the Nazi Party. The whole scenario of the Holocaust, the destruction and annihilation, including the “final solution,” was basically a desire to truly destroy our people. This event left a very deep imprint, and you could even say that it was a turning point. It created a very significant transformation in the people of Israel.
To understand what happened, we must first ask: Who Are You People of Israel?
The people of Israel are the same group that Abraham founded 3500 years ago in Babylon. This was a group of people who didn’t know each other at all. They were from all kinds of tribes, clans, families, but they all agreed to follow Abraham’s method. Love your neighbor as yourself, the need to rise above human nature, above the ego, and connect. They did connect, after the Egyptian exile. After all the problems and blows they suffered, they connected.
Abraham’s method allows us to extract the positive forces from nature, which can be used to counterbalance the negative forces in the world, and create harmony. So if we want to become better humans, then we can learn to use the same positive forces that come and fix the relations between us.
In the days of Moses we connected even more and reached the level where we were all connected. This was called reaching the First Temple. But since the purpose of creation is for all humanity to connect in such a way, that is, all of Babylon that has been scattered all over the earth in the meantime. We all came out of Babylon. So the people of Israel, that same group Abraham founded, must demonstrate this method to the world, to everyone. This is called being a light unto the nations.
Then we got distracted and fell to the ego again, and this was called the destruction of the Second Temple, which means we fell from brotherly love and reached baseless hatred. And that is how we’ve existed ever since.
Now again we find ourselves at a critical point in time. Are we going to choose connection and good? Or are we going for separation and trouble? This is the only place where we can truly exercise our free will.
In conclusion, the people of Israel have nothing to rely on since then, except for themselves. It’s a shame to have another Holocaust Day followed by a return to routine.
“I know that there is one thing that is common to all of us: the escape from the bitter exile. However, this is only a superficial union, like the sack that holds the nuts together, as was said above. This is why I said that we must establish for ourselves special education through widespread circulation, to instill in each of us a sense of national love, both from one person to another, and from the individuals to the whole, to rediscover the national love that was instilled within us since the time we were on our land as a nation among the nations.
This work precedes all others because besides being the basis, it gives the stature and successes to all the other actions that we wish to take in this field.”
