The Unyielding Truth: A Call to Return to Authentic Torah

4 min read

In the embrace of HaShem’s unfathomable mercy, we find ourselves in an era where the coming of Mashiach remains veiled in mystery. The identity of Mashiach Ben Yosef is concealed from us, for were redemption to dawn upon us now, it would bring forth a profound upheaval, necessitated by HaShem Himself.

It is a disquieting truth that every individual today, including those among us who walk the path of religion, is ensnared in some form of idolatry. This is a difficult reality to confront, especially for those who deem themselves pious and devout. Yet, it is a truth that must be faced with courage and humility.

The light of Torah, a radiant and vibrant truth, stands ready to unveil the falsehoods that have long been hidden in the shadows. This is not a light that offers comfort to the complacent; rather, it is a light that challenges, that exposes, that demands transformation. The role of Mashiach Ben Yosef, therefore, is not merely to restore but to revolutionize — to break apart the existing system and reveal the concealed truth of Torah, bringing humanity out of its spiritual exile.

The Torah we possess today is but a fraction of what was meant to be received at Mount Sinai. Our ancestors, lacking the necessary merit, were given narratives filled with metaphors and parables. It was a merciful act by HaShem, yet it also signified a missed opportunity to grasp the Torah in its purest form.

In contemporary times, we observe a troubling trend among rabbis and educators — the literal interpretation of Midrashim, which often leads to misunderstandings and, regrettably, the desecration of HaShem’s name. This literalism obscures the profound depths of Torah, reducing divine wisdom to mere stories, devoid of their true essence.

Further complicating our spiritual landscape is the loss of authentic Kabbalistic traditions, overshadowed by philosophical interpretations, such as those found in the Zohar. This shift has led to a diminished focus on the true study of Torah and Halacha in our Yeshivas. Instead, the emphasis has been placed on the study of Gemara, often neglecting the broader and deeper aspects of Torah wisdom. The result is a pervasive ignorance, a departure from the true essence of Torah study. The genuine sages, those rooted in the authentic oral traditions, are a rarity in our times.

This past Shabbat, a profound darkness, decreed by Ribono Shel Olam, was revealed — a divine warning highlighting the critical point we have reached. It serves as a stark reminder of the path we, as Am Yisrael, must undertake. We are at a point of no return, where the unfolding events are divinely orchestrated to culminate in the glorification of HaShem and the cessation of His desecration by those who claim to be His followers.

This darkness is not merely a period of difficulty; it is a call for a deep, sincere return to the roots of our faith. The light of Torah, in its full revelation, will not tolerate falsehood or misrepresentation. It demands from us a commitment to the truths of Torah, lived out in alignment with HaShem’s will.

As we navigate through these challenging times, it is imperative that we cling to the teachings of our sages and the eternal wisdom of the Torah. Our actions and words must reflect the sanctity and honor of HaShem. We must strive to be true ambassadors of His divine will, upholding the principles of Torah with integrity and sincerity.

May our efforts in returning to authentic Torah study and practice lead us to the day when HaShem’s name is exalted throughout the world, and His truth reigns supreme. Let us embrace this journey with the humility of a ram and the courage of a lion, unwavering in our devotion to HaShem and His Torah.
