Kabbalists About Kabbalah Today, Part 7

Dr. Michael LaitmanDear Friends, please ask questions about these passages from the great Kabbalists. The commentaries in brackets are mine.

An Opportunity for Redemption

Judaism [a science about connection with the Creator, from the word Yichud – “union”] must present something new [new relationships, revelation of the new purpose in life and the Upper World] to the nations. That is what they expect [subconsciously] from the return of Israel to the land! [Hence, after seeing that it is not happening, they hate us even more than before and claim that our state is unnecessary.]

It is not in other teachings, for in that we never innovated; we were always their disciples [we were first, but developed that which they had to develop]. Rather, it is the wisdom of religion, justice and peace [that they are expecting of us]. In this, most nations are our disciples, and this wisdom is attributed to us alone [since the program of correction of man’s nature has been passed to us].
– Baal HaSulam, “The Solution”

  1. What nations are you talking about Rav Laitman? If today’s Western nations are included in what the Wisdom of Kabbalah calls the “Nations of the World”, then, I am sorry, but it has never been a question of denying to the State of Israel its right to exist. Most of Muslim nations probably do in a way to support their Palestinian brothers, but as far as I know, most countries in the West are just claiming that Palestinians, too, should have a right to their own state (beside the Israeli one, not on its ashes.) And if, as you say — and I do agree with this — nations subconsciously gave a State to Jews so that they show them the way after WWII, aren’t we mostly speaking of countries of the Western World, which for the reason I just mentioned cannot be labeled as finding the State of Israel unnecessary?
