The "State" of Israel - A "False Light" to the Nations

15 Marcheshvan 5779

Or HaRa'ayon, Chapter 25, Havdalah continued...
...Israel's being separated from the nations is so important, because if Israel, chosen to be G-d's holy, special people, are not set apart from them but influenced by their culture, why then, were Israel created? What special purpose is there for the existence of Israel and the world? If they are like Nebuchadnezzar in behavior and thought, in their impurity, arrogance and profanations, why should G-d defend them and ensure their survival? Whoever wishes to be like Nebuchadnezzar will be thrown into Nebuchadnezzar's arms.
G-d established that there be no unity between Israel and the nations. They must not mix or mingle together. The walls separating them must never come down. Rather, there must be separation, borders, a division. This separation, indeed, serves the purpose of unity, but genuine unity of a world under Divine sovereignty, for a united world of falsehood is not G-d's will. Regarding the verse, "This is my beloved. This is my friend" (Song of Songs 5:16), our sages said (Bamidbar Rabbah, 10:1): 
     For they increase the number of My friends [Israel, who are called G-d's dod, or beloved, the greatest expression of love, increase the number of G-d's friends when they cause the nations to accept G-d's sovereignty]. How does this work? It says, "I have separated you out from among the nations" (Lev. 2:26). A person sorting out good from bad sorts and sorts again, but a person sorting bad from good does not sort and sort again. So, too, G-d hopes for the nations to repent so that He can bring them under His wing.
This is Israel's role. Yet, it is not to be carried out through assimilation and intimacy with the nations in order to be a false light unto them, as the ignoramuses and distorters say. Rather, it will occur through isolation and separation from them, through creation of a holy nation that will provide a real and different example. Then, they will come forth, and they, too, will wish to be a holy people.
To be continued, iy"H...

  1. And what about the American Jews with their "Federations" that want to impose their will on the Jews in Israel of stead of Hashem's will? Is someone waiting for the other shoe to drop? I wonder how bad it will get in America?

    1. Did you catch President Rivlin's 'brilliant' idea to have a "reverse birthright" program where Israeli youth would be sent to the Diaspora to learn how Diapora communities live?

    2. Its already dropping. There have been a steady increase in attacks on Jews in Chicago and NY. The democrat party has full on anti Jews like farrakhan supporter keith ellison X at the helm.

      Once the wave of illegal invaders from latin america switch TX and FL blue in the electoral college, the Republican party will never win another national election again.

      Obama is a piker compared to the marxists coming up the ranks in the democrat party. That process coupled with collapse of the petro dollar will end the US empire.

      Expect anti Jewish attacks daily when that happens. Maybe even pogroms. I hope Israel has a plan but bibi and co have no clue. They think the US will stand forever.

  2. Learning from these last two comments is even scarier than I thought. It seems to get even worse daily when reading the latest news. First, would like to say that the 'Federations' should definitely be avoided (who needs enemies) and never to donate even a penny to them. 2nd, Rivlin's latest brilliant suggestion proves how this is all part of the 'plan' to 'integrate the Jewish people, c'v, with the nations. More than disturbing and frightening.
