Haven't we been here before?
2300 Years later...we’re still battling Greek Culture on the streets of Jerusalem
500 Years later...we’re still resisting Christian attempts to convert us
2000 Years later...we’re still not cutting our hair and listening to music
60 Years later...we’re still running into bomb shelters
3300 Years later...our children are still covering their eyes and saying Sh’ma Yisroel...God is One.
Is there really a past, present and future to our History?
I'm not going to pretend I know the answers.
I'm not going to say what anyone should or should not do.
If there's anything that History has taught me...it's that man's ability to will things his way usually falls short.
But I take solace in the fact that I feel like I'm part of something BIG.
When I read Parshas Devarim I feel like it was written yesterday.
When I delve into Jewish History I'm awestruck at this sense of belonging to a present that is one with the past and future.
And I pray that God finally reveal to us the endgame of all this...
