Rabbi's Discussion on 10 Commandments and Jewish Role


Rabbi discussed the 10 Commandments and their implications. He emphasized that these commandments are not universal, although some of them are paralleled in the 7 Commandments, which he mentioned in a previous video. The Rabbi highlighted the Jewish people's role as being chosen by Hashem to teach and explain the 7 Commandments. He also addressed the importance of the Jewish people settling the land of Israel as a condition for humanity to progress to the next level of the human experience. Before ending the meeting, he promised to delve deeper into the purpose of the Jewish nation in the next meeting, using the words of Isaiah.



True Free Choice: Concept and Influence


Rabbi discussed the concept of true free choice, differentiating it from circumstantial decisions that are commonly made on a daily basis. He argued that our daily decisions are influenced by external parameters and are not truly free. He stated that a true free choice can only be made between two objects that are exactly the same, allowing for a choice that is truly free from any circumstantial or external influences. The Rabbi also touched upon the concept of jealousy and the need to understand and contemplate true free choice.

Jewish Soul and Identity


He emphasized that it wasn't because the Jewish people have a different soul but because every human being has a soul and the capacity to express it. He further explained that the Jewish people have an extra level in their soul that connects them to the study of Torah and the aspect of Moshe, the Redeemer. He concluded that the choice of Hashem in the Jewish people was not because of the soul but because of the physical, biological body, and that a Jew born from a Jewish mother is automatically chosen.


Importance of Jewish Settlement in Israel


The Rabbi emphasized on the importance of the Jewish people settling in the entirety of the land of Israel, as promised to Abraham in Genesis. He highlighted that all nations should help the Jewish nation to settle in the land of Israel, which he described as the soul settling into the body of humanity. The Rabbi also stressed on the Jewish nation's role as a light to all humanity, referring to Isaiah's prophecy, and the need for the nations to call upon Jewish sages for advice and guidance. He further emphasized on the importance of studying Torah for individual redemption and the future of humanity. He concluded by expressing hope that everyone will make the right choice to sit with a Jew and study Torah, and that the world for our children will be a beautiful one.

If we listen to your explanation in this videoclip, is this considered as sitting with a Jew and learn?
