"There is a Chinese proverb that says: "If we do not change our direction, we will end up where we are headed". As Jews we are presented with complex challenges in maintaining a strong identity. Our Jewish state of mind must be willing to be illuminated with time while keeping our beautiful traditions and rich culture alive. Can we move beyond the state of victimization? Can we direct our pain toward Tikkun Olam instead of detachment from Community, Torah and worse G-d? Unless we do, we may become extinct throughout the diaspora. G-d forbid! We must never forget the injustices of the Holocaust, the Spanish inquisition and other historical antisemitic abuses nonetheless memory must be used to pave a better way for the future. We are the people chosen to distribute Torah light. While it does not make us better than anyone else, it makes us duty bound to stay attached to our purpose as Jews. " Elisheva Irma Diaz de Hernandez
GOOD NEWS Something is happening globally. The Jewish Soul is being stirred like never before. 1. The detached Jew has two roads presented to them; a walking away from identity as a whole or a subtle pressure to re- attach themselves to their identity. 2. The practicing Jew is feeling a sense of urgency for their community. 3. The spiritually crippled Jew in pain is dealing with the reality of being mended or is running from the idea of a Healing in their Soul. 4. The Crypto Jew/Anusim is making a debut as they search for what has been hidden from them and decide what they will do with what is discovered.
Something is happening we cannot deny. G-d is with us and the Shekhina is hovering over us as Rachel's tears water the earth.
