New Life #775 – Assimilation
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Yael Leshed-Harel
In our day the differences between the Jewish people and other peoples have become blurred; everything has become free and open. This is a process that endangers the existence of the people of Israel. With the departure from the fold of religion, the Jews should have adopted the wisdom of Kabbalah. Because they didn’t do this, they began to disappear.
In fact, since the 16th century, we needed to know about our inner wisdom. If we don’t add spiritual development to popular Judaism, people will disappear from Judaism because a Jew can only exist as a religious Jew or a spiritual Jew who applies the wisdom of Kabbalah. When a Jewish person becomes assimilated, the Jewish point in him enters into a coma.
Being a spiritual Jew means returning to our root, correcting human nature, living according to the general rule, “And you shall love your friend as yourself” (Leviticus 19:18). A spiritual Jew gives an example of how we connect to each other with love, above the egoism of each and every one. If the current trend continues, it is specifically the Jews abroad who will harm the nation of Israel. In the United States, the Jews will completely disappear, except for a few ultra-orthodox groups.
At the peak of our development, humanity will reach a state in which everyone will be equal and connected, and the people of Israel must provide an example of it. If we don’t provide an example like this to the world, everyone will forcefully pressure us and obligate us to do it. Without adding the values of the wisdom of Kabbalah, spirituality, to our lives, we are liable to disappear.
