Who is the Suffering Servant of HaShem? Isaiah 53:3

By Rabbi Moshe Perets


Yeshayahu (Isaiah) - Chapter 53 נִבְזֶה֙ וַֽחֲדַ֣ל אִישִׁ֔ים אִ֥ישׁ מַכְאֹב֖וֹת וִיד֣וּעַ חֹ֑לִי וּכְמַסְתֵּ֚ר פָּנִים֙ מִמֶּ֔נּוּ נִבְזֶ֖ה וְלֹ֥א חֲשַׁבְנֻֽהוּ:


"Despised and rejected by men, a man of pains and accustomed to illness, and as one who hides his face from us, despised and we held him of no account."

The Rabbi discussed the divine purpose of the world and the Jewish people's role in revealing Hashem's hidden intentions. He emphasized the importance of the 7 Universal Commandments for all humanity and the Jewish people's role in teaching them.
