Push and stand

Normally, when someone pushes someone to fall, the pushed person falls down.

Not so the Jewish people. Because G-d helps us.

A king once asked his adviser, what proof is there that G-d exists? “Why the Jews, your majesty, the Jews,” he replied.

Empires disappeared, while the Jewish people, dispersed among the nations, survived and thrived.

When Yitzchak Rabin met the Lubavitcher Rebbe, they talked about the aloneness of the Jewish people. “Am levodod yishkoin” — a nation that dwells alone. (Numbers 23; 9)

The Jewish nation is different than every other nation. We are G-d’s chosen people, with a mission to teach the world about G-d, about the seven Noahide laws that G-d told Moses at Mount Sinai, and about a nation that is unlike anyone else.

“They push me down, they try to make me fall, but G-d helps.” (Psalms 118; 13)

We don’t play by the same rules as everyone else. We follow G-d’s Torah and His commandments, and He saves us. We unite with our fellow Jew, an intrinsic bond that transcends all differences, and G-d blesses His people with peace. We march against an enemy, confident not in our tanks and technology, but trusting in G-d to make our efforts successful.

Forget it antisemites. It’s a lost cause. You are just plain no match for G-d.

Forget it world. We play by different rules. We are not subject to the laws of nature, because we rise above it. G-d, Who is above nature and within it at the same time, runs the world according to His will.

Moshiach and Redemption is very close. A time when the nations will see clearly, that G-d runs the world, that He protects His people, and that the third and final temple will be rebuilt in Jerusalem.

A time of world peace. A time when “the entire world will be filled with knowledge of G-d, just as the waters cover the sea.” (Isaiah 11; 9)

May it happen very soon.
