The Sixties Radical-Azriel

G-d took us out of Egypt. We were delivered from slavery. G-d has always takes care of us Jews. So, what’s the problem? G-d told us if you follow my plan I will take care of you and the reward is great. Many times we didn’t listen. And we suffered the consequences of our actions.

“G‑d concluded His description of the installation rites by naming the Tabernacle the “Tent of Meeting.” This term implies that the Tabernacle would be the place where G‑d would “meet” with Moses in order to communicate with him, and the place where G‑d would “meet” the Jewish people whenever they would gather there to pray or listen to what G‑d told Moses.

[G‑d told Moses, “The Jewish people] will know that I am G‑d, their G‑d, who brought them out of Egypt in order to abide among them.” Exodus 29:46

There are those who complain, “The way of Torah puts us at a disadvantage. We have to observe the Sabbath and the holidays, but we have to compete in business with people who don’t. Before going to work in the morning, we have to pray and study the Torah. Right in the middle of our workday, we have to stop and pray again. When we finally get home in the evening, there’s still one more prayer to be recited. At work, we have to be careful to stay away from dishonesty or illegal business practices. We are not even allowed to compete with someone else’s business under many circumstances. How can we survive under these circumstances?”

G‑d replies, “I took you out of Egypt. Until then, not a single slave had ever managed to escape from Egypt. Yet, I took several million of you out, and showered you with great wealth. So you see, I am not bound by the restrictions of nature. If you fulfill My directives, I will reward you supernaturally and ensure that you have an abundance of everything that you need.”1 Likutei Sichot, vol. 2, p. 325.
