Jews Of America, Part 7

448.3Assimilation of American Jews

Question: Kabbalah has existed for almost 6,000 years. Are there any examples that this technique works and connects people?

Answer: There are no such examples, except for a brief period that includes exiting Egypt, 40 years of wandering in the desert, and the construction of the First Temple. That’s it. Since then, there has been only breakage, separation, and as a result—the exile of Jews.

Remark: Jewish America from the late 20th century to the early 21st century faces the question of its survival. On the one hand, no one is destroying the Jews physically. On the other hand, it is very difficult to talk about a single commonality of American Jews.

My Comment: In America very strong division continues. The Orthodox build “walls” around themselves that separate them from the secular. Non-religious Jews are trying to blend in with the rest of the population and assimilate among them. And they can be understood because they do not see in Judaism the answer to their questions. Therefore, it makes no sense for them to hold on to the principles of their grandparents. They are already brought up differently.

Naturally, in the near future, there will be nothing left of a religious America. Everything is so mixed up there that if it weren’t for the anti-Semites, there would be nothing left of the Jews long ago. And we don’t know what’s next. Most likely, the Orthodox will live separately in places that are fenced off from everyone.

Remark: Interestingly, this is how they preserve themselves for thousands of years. Still, there is some unity among them.

My Comment: This is not unity, but upbringing, through which they preserve themselves. And unity appears only due to the global pressure from outside and the need to survive.
