Now especially, when we see how we can never be comfortable in galus as Jews, when we see the difficulties Jews are undergoing as a result of both overt and covert anti-Semitism, it is time to come together as our forefathers did upon leaving Egypt and forge an unbreakable bond among the disparate groups of Klal Yisrael.
The terrible hatred of one group of Jews for another is absolutely horrifying. We have to see the present acrimony as a wake-up call. We are being torn apart by animosity and must do something that will unite us in a meaningful way.
If we really care about achdus, if unity is more than just a mantra, it is time to get off the sidelines and do something. Joining together with the widest array of Jews imaginable by undertaking to join the Daf HaYomi B’Halacha daily learning program is an important and critically vital first step.
Perhaps this unity among all segments of Torah-observant Jewry learning Daf HaYomi B’Halacha will bring us back from the brink and help lead to that exalted time we all await when once again we will be able to bring the Korban Pesach as a chaburah – “as one man, with one heart.”Rav Dovid Hofstedter
