From the brochure: “Who Are You, People of Israel?”
It is well known that the people of Israel came from ancient Babylon, between today’s Iraq and Iran. Some 4,000 years ago a thriving civilization sprawled over that vast, fertile land, and its people felt connected, sharing the same fate. In the words of the Torah, “The whole earth was of one language and of one speech” (Genesis, 11:1).
But as their ties grew stronger, so did their egos. They began to exploit one another and became hateful of each other. So while the Babylonians felt connected to each other, they also grew alienated from one another due to the egoistic nature intensifying within them.
In consequence, the Babylonians felt caught between a rock and a hard place, not knowing what to do. They began to search for a solution to their plight.
