In Search of Victimhood



The tendency of man is to focus on that which is most obvious. The loudest, most colorful, most attractive and most forceful draws our attention and skews our perspective of reality. Our enthrallment with the obvious blinds our eyes to the still silent voice of truth.

This human tendency favors the present over the past and future. Instead of looking at the arena of human activity as an intricate chain of cause and effect we pass judgment by what our eyes see here and now.

The Jewish people carry a legacy that teaches them not to be swayed by color, noise, flash and smoke. After all, we serve a God that cannot be seen. The Eternal Jew sees the activities of men as a saga which stretches from the past into the future, with the present simply being one link in the chain.
