I am not Jewish (unfortunately), I'm just a Texan. From my point of view, it is sites like Aish, and those Rabbis willing to teach the truth to regular folks like me, who are truly repairing the world. We are hungry for what you know. May you be richly blessed for sharing it!

It's great to think of "repairing the world", but who in the world is going to help repair USW, e.g., Israel? I believe this tikkun olam has held us back, always attempting to help others...when will others help us?????

The Mission Statement of the Jewish People
Yes, but I don't see that happening. Not even in Israel where there is more of an unawareness of God, a non-religiousness than in other Jewish communities. My message to Jews, all Jews, in Israel is "Obey HaTorah and keep Ha Shabbat holy". What could be so hard about that? But Islam is spreading faster than any other faith and what is it's mission statement? "Destroy Israel!" Rebbe Feiner's statement is most appropros to our time. Thank you Rebbe!

Thank you! How I wish that Aish.com would make this message a permanent fixture on their website.
We are the light of the nations and not the light for only ourselves. Light of the nations. That is our calling. That is who we are. I suspect that when we truly begin to live up to that calling things will be different.

Teaching vs Converting
From what Rabbi Feiner says, one might get the idea that Jews should missionize in the same way as do other religions, whereas in reality this is forbidden in Judaism. It should be emphasized that in "caring for all the world" we should teach by example and giving help, not by preaching. We can bring awareness of the Creator by ascribing our values to him when praised for our kindness, etc.
