An article in The Jerusalem Post:

My comment:

I agree that education is the most important. We have to completely revive Jewish education not only in Israel but also all over the world.

We have to show with all our tools we have how historically the Jewish people survived and thrived when they are united and practical “mutual guarantee” — each Jew feeling and acting with total and unconditional responsibility towards each and every other Jew — works between them, and that we face immediate and serious existential threat when we abandon our unity.

The very real and visceral sense of unity and mutual responsibility we awakened as a result of the events of October 7th and since should give us a good foundation to develop and maintain this education about the crucial necessity of Jewish unity and mutual guarantee above and despite any internal or external influence or instinctive reaction that tries to separate and reject us from each other.

Moreover, we also need to educate Jews all over the world about our very high and obligatory role in humanity, that we are supposed to maintain and publicize this “supernatural” — above the instinctively egoistic, selfish, and exploitative human nature — unity and mutual responsibility to everybody.

In a globally integrated and interdependent world, there is no other method for safe and sustainable survival!

Jew and Israel have to become the positive and shining example for mankind!
