    So get on a plane. The Holy Land is here, Jews are here, maybe it is just your one-more-personal-spark that will bring what we all wait for.

    This feels like you are justifying remaining in the galut (or golus, depending where you are from) by glorifying it. Worse, not only are you personally choosing to stay in exile, you are setting an example for and presenting arguments to convince others to do the same.

    Your homeland is available.

      Sorry to tell you, but we are also in galus here in Israel. Jews can’t build where we want ,or even walk safely in certain cities right here because of the danger of being killed by an arab. Even the Old City of Jerusalem is dangerous for a Jew. In many cases the rights of arabs come before the rights of Jews and we can be arrested for self defense.

      The author of the above article is not trying to justify or glorify galus. He is simply saying that being that we are in galus we should know the purpose of it and realize what we are supposed to be accomplishing.

    Re: Oorah Spirit
    This newsletter is a long awaited and refreshing site !

    I particularly enjoyed the ‘Torah Thought for your Shabbos Table’.
    Beautiful insight on Golus. I would have appreciated knowing the name of the author or the derivative of this thought.

    Again, Kol Hakovod, well done !
