Remark: After the exile from Spain and flourishing in Germany, Jewish communities in the 16th century moved to Poland, Little Russia, and the Baltic states. Until the middle of the nineteenth century, Jews lived in closed communities, united by one language, one trade, and one religion.
My Comment: The fact is that the development of the Jews does not happen in the same way as other nations. Throughout history, they constantly needed to care about how to come to unity and show this method to all the nations of the world. This is the essence of the Jews, their purpose, the reason for their existence.
After all, this is not a nation, but a collective group of all the nations of the world, which was assembled in Ancient Babylon by Abraham who brought them out of there and made a single nation out of them.
However, since they do not have a common biological root, they very often fall apart and move away from each other. If the idea that unites them from the inside is not manifested in them or they are not pressed by enemies from the outside, they do not feel close to each other.
According to the wisdom of Kabbalah, this nation has its own development plan.
For more on this topic, read my books Like a Bundle of Reeds: why unity and mutual guarantee are today’s call of the hour, and The Jewish Choice: Unity or Anti-Semitism, Historical facts on anti-Semitism as a reflection of Jewish social discord.
