One Response to “Dear Not a Jew -> Jew”

  1. Bet Tefillah says:

    Tzvi

    Over the last few weeks I have been reading your posts with regard to Aliya. I have noticed other my and people's reactions to them. At first the idea was very surprising to me that we Jews must move to Eretz Israel to truly perform the Mitzvot and merit redemption. I felt anger and shame and a bit of outrage. After all I was born outside of Israel and I am not at fault that my family lives here.

    But as I continue to read each week's Parsha I have begun to realize and see that you are right. One cannot be said to be doing right outside of Israel. At the moment (to some degree) we are in a self imposed exile of sorts. I also have begun to see that the reason for my initial reaction was ego and had nothing to do with truth. The only thing standing in the way of Aliya for me is money. So with the help of G-d and some hard work I intend to start my Aliya. The first step it seems is to make Aliya with one's heart. To do that we must understand that we are not just obligated to mitzvah but many of the mitzvaot cannot be performed outside of Israel. We must also realize that we are commanded to live inside of Israel. It was our lack of willingness to do mitzvot and our rebellion against G-d and His ways that caused the coming of the exile. The end of the exile is at hand. The decision of where we will be when it happens is (to some degree) ours.

    So I want to thank you Tzvi for opening my eyes and my heart to this idea.

    Isaac
