    The nations shall know – Ki Tavo

    The nations of the world will see that God is with us and they will give us respect. This assurance comes in the Torah portion (Deut. 28:10).

    When we hear these lovely words we say, “If only!”

    It is well known that if and when a Jew appears before a court, the judicial bench takes it for granted that Jews are a law-abiding people who very rarely commit an offence. The few Jews who get in trouble are exceptions to the rule and they bring dishonour to the name of God.

    That is no guarantee that outsiders will always praise our virtues and never contemplate antisemitism. The “once again” form of antisemitism is happening too much, and all we can do is to conduct ourselves with honesty and uprightness.
