New Life #603 – Social Self Searching
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe
How should we relate with the growing incidence of expressions of hatred in Israel? What makes us a nation and why will only educating people to love others as themselves help us live in peace with one another?
It isn’t clear what all the commotion is about, after all hatred has been part of every aspect of our daily life in every sector of society. We are the worst because we have to set an example of love of others and we don’t do so.
If we don’t keep the basic rule of our nation of “love thy friend as thyself,” we are not considered Jews or the nation of Israel. We are in complete darkness today and we need to reset ourselves and redefine what it means to be Jewish.
We are in great trouble: there is no nation or State of Israel since there is no connection between us. We are advancing toward a point in which we will literally devour one another, as the prophets say. The whole Torah is only about “love thy friend as thyself,” period. This is also what the wisdom of Kabbalah tells us.
We need to start a general social educational process teaching love of others and set it as an example to the world: in schools, universities, workplaces, the media, for pensioners, for the unemployed, for families, for everyone. We should reach appoint in which the state doesn’t give anyone anything unless he studies what “love thy friend as thyself” means.
It is not the time for speaking nicely now, it is time to act! We should engage in what happens today so that it will not happen again tomorrow.
