Rabbi, I normally love your videos. This time I was left very confused. What "strengths" were you referring to that Hitler noticed? Was it a "strength" to be "good" forced laborers? Furthermore, nobody can claim to know what was going on in another person's mind, unless the person specifically states what he is thinking. It is therefore historically inaccurate and doesn't make sense to attribute thoughts to Hitler - ie that he noticed each Jews' individual strengths (and the Nazis weren't differentiating between individuals when it came to slave labour. You either were fit to work or you weren't.)

Parallels to today (a few thoughts to ponder)

Hi Rabbi, I watched your video and I couldn’t help but notice the massive elephant in the room. Govts and elitists today (you can see Trudeau’s speech yesterday and French president Macron the day before vilifying the unvaxxed. Could it be that same methods hitler used with finding our strengths the govts are doing the same? Look at how Jewish shuls were so quick to implement a vaccine only allowance, when we see that there is no safety and efficacy in reducing transmission. So what have govts accomplished they have created a divide amongst Jews, a branding of the unvaccinated being unclean, when there is no difference in viral load in either. When we can all daven together in a shul under one roof, and partake in events together, in unity, that will be the day we show govts our strengths. All the best
