What Is Israel's Purpose In The World?

What Balaam's Blessings Teach Us About Judaism's Purpose

In this video, we ask an incredibly broad question: what is the purpose of the nation of Israel in this world? Understanding that, how does the purpose of Judaism affect how we should act?

To answer these questions, Rabbi Fohrman points out a fascinating connection between the three blessings that Balaam (accidentally) gives the nation of Israel and the three blessings that God gives to Abraham in Genesis. These links, Rabbi Fohrman argues, provide incredible insight into our purpose and our destiny, as a nation, and how we can bring God's blessings into the world.
