Shmuz #34

Israel: Exalted Nation / Oppressed People (Why Did G-d Allow the Holocaust to Happen?)

Throughout history all things change, but there is one constant that seems to cross all cultural and time barriers. Everyone hates the Jew.

Is there a Torah perspective that can explain why the Jewish nation is so tortured and oppressed? If we accept that G-d controls what happens on this earth, is there a reason why His nation, the Chosen People, are so downtrodden? Are there forces involved that control the very destiny of Israel?

This Shmuz explores some of the underlying causes of the Jewish nation’s status throughout history, including the “Why” behind the Holocaust.
