  • The Art of T'Shuva

    Rabbi David Samson and Tzvi Fishman

    T'shuva is the healthiest feeling possible. A healthy soul in a healthy body must necessarily bring about the great joy of t'shuva, and the soul consequently feels the greatest natural pleasure.

    Even if a person cannot immediately redress all of his wrongdoings, he should know that there is great value in simply wanting to be good.

    What matters the most is the striving for perfection, for the striving for perfection is perfection itself.

    Every Jew has his own specific pathway to t'shuva. General T'shuvas will not suffice. Everyone has to find the path appropriate for his own unique soul and unique role in life.

    The force of t'shuva, like gravity in the physical world, is built into the inner fabric of life. It stands as the impetus behind all world development and endeavor toward social improvement.

    The rebirth of the Jewish nation in the Land of Israel is the foundation for the ultimate t'shuva, both for the nation of Israel and for the world.

    The future will reveal the miracle of t'shuva, and this revelation will capture the whole world with an incredible fervor, far greater than all of the wonders which the world is accustomed to see.

  • War and Peace

    Rabbi David Samson and Tzvi Fishman

    Rabbi Kook reveals that great wars quicken the footsteps of Mashiach and advance the Redemption of Israel. The uprooting of tyrants, and the triumph of good over evil, prepare the world for the great light of Israel.

    Often startling in its condemnation of Western civilization's moral decay, Rabbi Kook's writings on war reveal a little-known side of his giant Torah personality. Written during the height of World War One, his essays read like prophecies heralding the rebirth of The Jewish nation in Israel, a miracle which began to unfold in the aftermath of the war.

    To balance Rabbi Kook's essays on war, the book's commentators have compiled a selection of Rabbi Kook's writings on peace. True Shalom, he explains, can only be achieved when the nation of Israel is united and guided by Talmidei Chachamim and by the light of Torah. 

    When one understands the the Redemption of Israel is the goal of world history, one can discover a new spiritual dimension in all of the world's revolutions and wars.

    Our heroes of the past, Abraham, Moshe, Joshua, King David, and the Macabbees, were complete in their spiritual binding - mighty in Torah, mighty in holiness and mighty in war. our identification with them, and our desire to emulate them, awakens our inner potential.

    There are times when Israel is forced to adopt the politics of war, not from a lust for killing and conquest, but to put an end to all war.

    Modern western culture, with all of its immorality and falsehoods, will disappear from the world, the holy culture of Israel will be established in its place.

    While the general outlook on peace maintains that man's inner peace will come only after world peace is achieved, the opposite is true. Peace begins at home. this is especially important for the nation of Israel, which is destined to lead the world to Shalom.
