We Need Hope for Turbulent Times – What Can We Do Now?
Again, we are experiencing a plague of antisemitism. Again, our people are being attacked physically and verbally. Again, our lives are disrupted.
Someone asked me: It’s important to speak out, but is there anything else an ordinary person like me can do to fight this hatred? Yes, most certainly. Our sages tell us that spiritual actions are essential. Here’s what you can do right now:
Pray: Say Tehillim (Psalms) and make hitbodedut (personal prayer to Hashem in your own words.) Your prayers count. Consider organizing a social-media group, where everyone says a portion of Psalms daily, enough that between all of you, you are able to complete the entire book.
Give Charity: Give Tzedakah as a blessing for the safety and protection of Jews everywhere. Give to Jewish groups that offer physical (medical or otherwise) life-saving efforts, authentic Jewish education for children and adults, feed the hungry or other important Jewish causes.
Learn More Torah & Judaism: Learn any authentic Jewish wisdom such as the Biblical texts and the teachings of the true tzaddikim like Rebbe Nachman of Breslov.
Learn About Mashiach: Did you know that belief in the coming of the authentic Jewish Messiah and the anticipation of his coming is one of the 13 Foundations of Judaism? Learn about the Mashiach (the Messiah) and increase your knowledge and anticipation of the Geulah, the world-wide Redemption.
Violence on the Streets are the Part of the Birth Pangs of the Messiah: We see once again terrorist violence and anti-Jewish hatred happening in Israel, and on the streets of European and American cities. We hear the shocking anti-Jewish rhetoric coming from elected politicians. We know that our sages say that these terrible events are part of the “birth pangs” of the era of Mashiach. So many are experiencing unrest, uncertainty, anxiety, and fear.
That’s why it’s important to not only pray, give charity, and learn Torah but also to learn about and yearn for the coming of the Mashiach. Antisemitism is irrational. No amount of logic or education ever snuffs out the hatred of the Jews or Israel. We are being shown that, in truth, there is nowhere else to turn except Hashem. Fortunately, Hashem loves us and wants us to turn to Him. Hashem wants us to yearn for the Mashiach and the Geulah, which, as Rebbe Nachman of Breslov says, is the entire purpose and end-goal of creation.
