he will never leave us

as like many jewish people some feel that they don't need G-d, for me I need him every day, here I wasw taken from my parents, had alot of emotional things in my life, Hashem has always been there, and like I tell people now, I do not want to go back to egypt. Our G-d wants us to go forward, I say study Torah, look only to G-d, he will direct your path,

What about the Jews in the diaspora?

I have travelled extensively throughout western Canada, and the inland North-West(US), and have found many many Jewish people without a connection to Judaism, I was one, having come as a 'Survivor' at the age of 8 in 1947 from Holland. There was absolutely NOTHING for spiritual aid or even any connections to a Rabbi or Schul.
Even as I write there are hundreds who do not know the shema, or any Judaic prayers, they have forgotten Yiddish, know no Hebrew, and are totally cut -off. We know that Hashem will watch over them, but in the meantime?
