Answer: It is not for nothing that the people of Israel are called a “stiff necked people” (Exodus 33:3) in the Torah. But there is no choice, we need to continue because if we don’t unite voluntarily, then we will be pushed through suffering. And we don’t want to invite more suffering to obligate us to open our ears and hearts.
Let’s try to persuade people to listen before then. The science of Kabbalah says that unity is the foundation of the formation of our people, the secret of nature and its primary law. Every time that we hear about another terrorist attack, we need to think that it is specifically we who aroused it and caused it through the separation between us.
Kabbalah teaches, “Love your neighbor as yourself” (Leviticus 19:18) and “What is hateful to you, do not [do] to your neighbor” (Shabbat 31a), and “All of Israel are friends” (Talmud Yerushalmi Hagigah 3:6), and these are not just nice words.
It is difficult for us to carry them out because separation, distance, and mutual revulsion reign between us. But specifically because of this we must work on it, correct it in ourselves and the entire world.
