Shaul Magid, the Distinguished Fellow in Jewish Studies at Dartmouth College, meets Kabbalist Dr. Michael Laitman to discuss anti-Semitism, and why America is one of the most sensitive countries where it can have an immersive growth.
The most developed nations of the world can feel the severest effects of anti-Semitism. This is so because they better feel that Jews “are hiding the key to Heaven” from them.
According to the wisdom of Kabbalah, Jews really do. They bear the method of correction, which lets them bring the force of love and bestowal into the world and prevent the upcoming overall crisis. This method the Jewish people received in ancient Babylon 3,800 years ago from Abraham who revealed that building positive human connections helps to consciously rise above the destructive egoistic human nature. Today, there is an urgent need for this method to be shared with everyone.
Unfortunately, after three exiles, it was lost, and Jews fell into some kind of coma. There is a false sensation of being secure. Even though recently, we were able to observe the anti-Semitic acts all over the world (especially in the US), instead of turning to their nature and become a “light unto the nations,” Jews powerlessly fight against anti-Semitism advocating laws for protecting Jews and state security. With such a state of things, the next Holocaust can happen in a country like America.
In order to prevent this, we must understand that the solution lies in the connection between us. The Jewish people need to do so first, and by the law of nature, the world will follow them.
