The Jews and the Moon


   by Reb Gutman Locks

 

     Jews are often likened to the moon. There are a number of reasons given, but mainly because the moon renews itself. This means that both the Jew and the moon know that when it is dark soon there will be light again.

    There is another strong likeness to the moon. Even in its darkest days the moon is still the moon. No matter what it does the moon is the moon. Likewise, a Jew who is totally assimilated, who does not know any Torah whatsoever, who is totally dark to awareness of Hashem, is still a Jew.

     A Jew can never stop being a Jew, so it makes sense for each of us to fulfill our roles as Jews, not only because this will bring us the best life we could possibly have, but simply because it is what we are.
