Quote of the day

l'essence de notre liberation depend de notre savoir

"The essence of redemption depends on Knowledge." (Rabbi Nachman of Breslov, Likutey Moharan I, 56)

Comment: Each individual lives in a double exile. The first is the exile of the Jewish people: we live in that exile for nearly 2000 years! The second is our everyday exile: the one which makes us feel so distant from G-d and Holiness and so attracted to the material world.

If the Jewish people is still in exile, is that the vast majority of its members pursues frivolous objectives whose values are contrary to those of the Torah. Our lifestyle, culture, dress style ... what do we really do as "Jewish" in our daily lives?

Each of us probably doesn't have the power to end the exile of all Jewish souls. However, for every gesture and action that we do for Hashem (mitzvah, Torah study, prayer ...), it's like trying to put an end to our exile. The more we multiply these actions in our daily lives, the more we bring closer the Jewish people to the end of its exile. This, we can do it!
