Shaul Magid, the Distinguished Fellow in Jewish Studies at Dartmouth College, meets Kabbalist Dr. Michael Laitman to discuss anti-Semitism, and how establishing unity between Jews can prevent it.
We live in a shattered reality. Each smallest smart part of society, called human, lives only for a personal benefit, and has no opportunity to really understand or change anything.
The subconscious claim from the nations of the world on the Jews is that their misfortunes and suffering in life is caused by Jews. Kabbalah explains this sensation as a natural phenomenon.
From the time of the Jewish people’s birth under Abraham’s guidance 3,800 years ago, the Jews bear the method of building positive connections above the human ego. This method made them one entity and gave them a name – “Jews” (from “Yihud” – “united”).
Today, we face a global crisis, and since the world becomes more and more interconnected, this crisis will touch each area of human existence. The only way to avoid it is to correct human relations. From this point on, there is a need in Abraham’s method of connection, and the nations of the world already subconsciously demanding from Jews to implement it and share with everyone.
Therefore, the Jewish people must reunite. This is a need. If they do, the entire world will follow their example, if not – the new wave of anti-Semitism will overtake them.
