We must go out and do whatever is in our power to help – whether teaching classes or inviting non-religious co-workers to our homes, whether joining Partners in Torah or contributing to kiruv programs. The work is endless, but the potential is stellar.
At the same time, we can’t lose sight of the reality that these attempts succeed only because of the spiritual state of our nation. We no longer have a Beis HaMikdash. Now, our yeshivas and kollels are the nuclear furnaces that provide the spiritual fuel for the world. If our own Torah study is on a high level, and we are pumping out the vital spiritual fuel needed, then with Hashem’s help all these efforts will succeed. However, if we allow the spiritual reactors of our people to decline, all the best efforts in the world will not meet with success. The underlying energy source of it all will be lacking.
