Rabbi Lawrence Hajioff’s third book, The Future: A Guide to the Jewish Messiah, Israel, and the End of Days, answers some of Judaism biggest questions about the coming of the Jewish Messiah, the future of the state and land of Israel, and what the term “the End of Days” means from a Jewish context.
The book delves into the traditional Jewish sources to describe these ideas and shed some light on how many of the world’s current hot-button issues are par for the course.
In this week’s episode, Rabbi Hajioff speaks about what inspired this book and perhaps why so many Jews are removed from the ideas of the book. He also discusses one of the main lessons of the Torah that can and must be gleaned from this book in order to maintain optimism in the face of so much pessimism around the world. Finally, he eloquently pinpoints his main source of daily inspiration, and what key component many Jews today need in order to reach their full potential.
