We need to become a “kingdom of priests” and a “holy nation.” Baal HaSulam speaks about this in the articles “Matan Torah (The Giving of the Torah),” “The Arvut (Mutual Guarantee),” and others. This is our destiny, but we do not execute it.
To date, the process of the formation of modern Israel has been exhausted. We haven’t created a nation that through its design would be consistent with the concept of “the people of Israel.” As a result, our country cannot be called the “nation of Israel.” In regard to culture and education, we do not correlate with what should have been.
Therefore, in recent years, the external pressure has been growing. It makes no difference who is behind it, whether it is the American president, the prime minister of France or England, a student organization, or our Arab neighbors.
Moreover, we recently have been feeling the pressure from all sides. Today, it has come to the fact that no country, no people, and no party will raise its voice for Israel. This is a clear sign of the depleted amount of time that has been allocated to us to truly organize ourselves to become what we were to become: “a light to the nations.”
In addition, we can only be a light to the nations on condition that we unite among ourselves. After all, our nation, unlike others, was not founded on a genetic basis. Our nation is a group of people united by ideology rather than biology.
It is necessary to take into account what is said in the Torah and what Kabbalists say: We have a special role, and we need to implement it properly, first of all, with regard to the people in the country of Israel.
