Question: Among Zionists there were many disagreements of a different nature. So in the 1920s, Nordau’s plan to transfer Jews from Eastern Europe to Israel failed. In the 1930s, Jabotinsky’s plan to resettle Jews was not adopted at the Zionist Congress. It got to the point that one of the leaders of the Zionist movement Khaim Arlozorov was killed as a result of ideological disagreements between the left Zionists and the revisionists.
Which of these movements does Kabbalah fit better?
Answer: Neither of them. Kabbalah relates only to spiritual laws that descend into our world and determine its entire structure and development. Therefore, what Zionists, revisionists, socialists, communists, evangelicals, or anyone else say has nothing to do with Kabbalah.
Kabbalists believe that it is necessary to begin to reclaim the land of Israel, to be worthy of this land with one’s properties, the properties of bestowal, love, mutual connection, and unity. This is what they aspired to. And it is not for us to judge to what extent they could do it.
To this day, we have only been concerned with explaining what the science of Kabbalah is, what it should lead a person to, what it talks about. It is difficult for people to realize that Kabbalah, the upper nature, the Creator, all this is practically acquired by people’s corrected desires when they strive toward each other and reveal the upper world in their unity.
It is not easy. It takes a lot of time and desire for people to understand, feel, and begin to see what the science of Kabbalah is really talking about.
It talks only about a person’s internal changes, about a change in one’s perception of reality. And all external manifestations are a consequence of this.
