We all wonder about evil   In fact I would go so far to say good people are obsessed with the anomaly of evil   Certainly Jews – who suffered from evil – try to overcome it through weird and wonderful notions like one guy in Germany (pre-holocaust) wrote an Encyclopedia explaining all about Jews, as in this way Germans understanding Jews would not hate them.   Trouble is, didn’t work.   So here is my explanation which gives us a paradigm, a moshul, an example, which good people can relate to and hence understand and hence perhaps truly do what is needed to convert the darkness into light or at least recognize darkness and not succumb into its nefarious anti-Semitic and death trap, quite literally – as unfortunate Jews in Israel misunderstanding the motives of Arabs have, literally given their Nazi Arabs (for Arafat and all of the current Muslim brotherhood etc.. were trained (at least the forbearers of the Muslim brotherhood) by Nazis – and Hitler had an Arab killing unit and in fact it was the Arabs who advised Hitler as Mufti was a close friend on the final solution.)   Imagine the pain of a hungry man.   Now what wouldn’t that person do for hunger.   Perhaps he would kill or anything just to abate his pain.   There is a soul that is hungry.   A soul that smashed into degradation will do anything to absolve itself from its shame.   Hence we find precisely after Germany suffered the humiliation of losing world war one (though they started it, but nonetheless there was humiliation in losing as well) that is when the rise of antisemites – in fact the condition for Hitler to take over – for remember it was a Read more…

    What is Moshiach?   Who is Moshiach?   Today in a class I was giving, someone asked me, “isn’t Moshiach within?”   Is Moshiach within?   Why did our leader – the greatest Jewish saint, scholar and leader of our time, Rabbi Schneersohn promote Moshiach so strongly?   Well who better to ask then one of his Chozirim – Rabbis with photographic memories who would write down his words verbatim after Shabbos, then have them edited by the Rebbe, and culled into Sefer Hasichos, rabbi Simon Jacobson.   Rabbi Jacobson told me that the Rebbe was promoting a consciousness change.   In other words, you see, many in Lubavitch were used to the Rebbe promoting campaigns, and indeed Moshiach is a campaign, but it is not a Put On Teffilin, Light Shabbos, action campaign; it is a shift your bad thoughts to a good thoughts, campaign.   It is an internal, as well as global campaign.   It is a campaign to trust that things have changed for the better.     In fact many people try to promote Moshiach through the “look how bad it is, can’t get worse, so Moshiach must be coming!”   The Rebbe promoted Moshiach through “look how much better it is,” (compare today to the past few thousand years as a reference) “look how many many positive things have happened to us!” (and though the Rebbe only alluded to this, for some of these things happened after gimmel tammuz nonetheless many many more incredible messianic miracles have taken place, from a shift in world consciousness towards God, spirituality, meaning, love, to hundreds of millions of Christians instead of frying our .. trying to get our … to Israel, AMAZING.)   This shift of coconsciousness takes one simple shift of belief – so Read more…

In Other Words Its Not A Manual That Works, Its A Headset To Infinity!   In Other Words, I Was Giving A Class Yesterday And The Exceptionally Bright Young Student Had Lots of Questions.   Another Rabbi Listening In Told Me:   “I First Agree With Everyones Questions, Instead Of Answering Them; Because I Want People To Realize Judaism Is Not An Answer, It Is A Process.”   In Other Words, We Learn That We Know Nothing, That God Knows Everything And Every Step Of Wisdom We Find, IS Not Intellectual, Rather A Kindness, A Revelation.
