Question: In Germany the trial began of a 94-year-old Nazi criminal who was a guard at the Auschwitz concentration camp. He is accused of the murder of 170,000 Jews. The trial stimulated a lot of interest and was moved from the courthouse to the Chamber of Commerce of the city of Delmold. What is your opinion about the event?
Answer: In the war years I was a small child and I grew up in the shadow of what happened. Even though I didn’t personally experience the events of the war, I heard, saw, and felt everything because the horrors of war left a big mark on the whole surviving family.
On the one hand, this was terrible! On the other hand, when I began to study the wisdom of Kabbalah, I understood that all of this happened because the Jews hadn’t carried out their role in the world. In other words, it is possible to say that latent in nature is a need for the Jews to unite and show an example to the whole world so that our world will be transformed into the upper world. Humanity will rise to the highest level and will reveal goodness and love to the world. This cannot be done by anyone except for the Jewish people in whom is embedded the method of unity and love called the “wisdom of Kabbalah.”
When I began to study it, I saw that the nations of the world have no freedom of choice, which includes their hatred of Jews. Even though it seems externally that they hate us, from an inner look at their nature, I understand that they are enslaved and forced. The hatred that is felt from them appears naturally because the people of Israel are not fulfilling nature with the good connections and love which they can attain.
Unfortunately the Jews don’t understand their mission, do not understand that they can work and transform themselves and the whole world to achieve happiness. They remain indifferent and I would say that they are even directed against the method that will free them and humanity from egoistic evil.
As the leader of the only organization in the world that is involved with the study, the dissemination, and the promotion of the wisdom of Kabbalah, done for the purpose of correcting the Jews, I can say that at every moment we encounter their lack of desire, especially among the religious Jews in Israel and in all nations, to understand and accept the wisdom of Kabbalah in the framework of Judaism. To me this is unfortunate since we could fall into the next Holocaust because of this.
