Question from Facebook: You are always talking about the mission of the Jewish people. Are you certain they will be able to fulfill it?
Answer: Yes. This is laid in the basis of nature. The question lies only in how quickly they accept the job and in what manner they will actualize it in order to give all of humanity an example of connection.
This is essentially the mission of the Jewish people. They must become united within and demonstrate to all humanity how to build society and the state correctly.
It is exactly for this reason that the Jewish people find themselves on their own land again after 2,000 years, in order to once again build a state and create a unified nation, a correct society, family, and so on. This phenomenon does not exist in nature! We have to build it here, now, on this land. And then we will suddenly find ourselves in the center of the entire human community.
Everyone will suddenly look at us, but this time not with hatred, as they do now, but on the contrary, with comprehension that this is exactly what they were expecting from us, and therefore, they hated and thought negatively of us because we were not fulfilling our mission.
This is called becoming a “light to the nations”—demonstrating an example of connection to them so they too will unite.
Question: That means that the Jewish people will build a society of the future, but not for themselves?
Answer: The Jewish people do not exist for themselves. That is the problem. They need to understand that they must exist for all the other peoples. The law of altruism, bestowal, “love your friend as yourself,” is calling us to this.
