Shaul Magid, the Distinguished Fellow in Jewish Studies at Dartmouth College, meets Kabbalist Dr. Michael Laitman to discuss anti-Semitism and why the connection between Jews is the only true solution to it.
Anti-Semitism is on the rise. There are summits and discussions on how to stop it. Various solutions are suggested. However, anti-Semitism continues escalating despite the many efforts to counter it. Thus, the question arises: What is missing in all the efforts to combat anti-Semitism?
The wisdom of Kabbalah states that there is a law of nature, according to which Jews have to consciously connect, and through their connection, let the positive upper force of love and bestowal enter the world. Since the Jewish people originated in ancient Babylon as a group gathered by Abraham around the principle of “Love covers all transgressions”—a method of overcoming the egoistic human nature by building positive connections between people—today is the time for them to reappear as one united entity and expand this unity for all humanity.
Human nature is included in the laws of nature. Therefore, Jews have to act according to nature’s plan. If they don’t, they call on themselves hatred and violence from the nations of the world, dressing up as anti-Semitism of different forms, and the external threat connects them at some point.
Is there a peaceful way for Jews to connect?
Yes. This is a conscious connection according to Abraham’s method. If Jews from all over the globe come together and start implementing “love your neighbor as yourself,” and sharing the method of connection with the nations of the world, they will invert the way in which the law of nature works and let the good enter the world.
