What can we do today in Rabbi Kahane’s absence? Whatever we can, each of us to the extent of our abilities. Within the reach of our arms. We must continue to spread his message. Rabbi Kahane may be gone, but Chazal have taught us that even in death the righteous live on. Yet, they only live if we give their teachings life. Life beyond the computer keyboard or social media outlets. Rabbi Kahane was no armchair activist. The street was what made him a Jewish gibor. Ideology articulated with action. Without implementing Rabbi Kahane’s ideas on the ground, his ideas will remain relegated to books, discussions, and various other outlets for armchair activism.
Read Rabbi Kahane’s timeless books, “They Must Go!” and his final say on the matter, “Revolution or Referendum.” Read his Torah works. Internalize the message. Rabbi Kahane wasn’t just right when Jewish blood spills freely in the streets. That’s a visceral reaction that unfortunately dissipates in time with most people. Use your head. If he’s correct today, then he’s correct tomorrow. Don’t be a bandwagon “Kahanist” or what Rabbi Kahane referred to as a “closet Kahanist.” Let his words resonate across the country, nay, let them thunder across the world. And let the deaf and dumb politicians in our midst hear the message loudly and without any confusion: Rabbi Kahane is still alive! Arabs out!
