    Your question is a good one.

    Looking at historical examples of how wise people dealt with various difficult situations is instructive. (Too many people today believe that they are smarter than those who came before them. An arrogant delusion.)

    But I suggest going back to circa 1300 bce to learn how a great man dealt with dis-ease…

    Moses and the Hebrews after forty years of right action and healthy living rose to such great spiritual, intellectual and physical heights that they literally changed human history forever. Their immune systems were bolstered by right living. (They climbed the Tumah Ladder.) And of course before this time, the Hebrews in the Delta of Egypt who heeded Moses were able to mount defences and take effective measures against the ravages of the Ten Plagues. Several of which, I’m sure, were actually viruses.

    I have presented the following Multiple Choice Question to various people over the last 15 years. (How people answer this explains a lot about their “Judaism” and Religious perspective.)

    Do you think “Moshiach” :

    A- Is a type of Polish stew best served in winter.

    B- Is a silly old concept with no relevance to today. (Many Reform, Progressive, Liberal, Conservative/Masorti Jews believe this.)

    C- Is satisfied by the State of Israel itself. i.e. It does not imply an actual person. (The Uber Zionist position)

    D- Has already lived and will return in a Second Coming. (The Evangelical Christian and Mishichist Lubavitch “M.M.Schneerson is Moshiach” view.)

    E- Has not been born yet. He is yet to come.

    F- Is a metaphor for an age of peace. i.e. It does not imply an actual person. (Ditto B above et al.)

    G- Is alive and breathing right now doing his work.

    I wonder how shocked many people would be if (G) is shown to them as the correct answer now. As I have realised since 1995 there are different levels of awareness. There most certainly is a hierarchy of awareness/wisdom in the world now in late July 2018.

    Stay Tuned…

    The Redemption of Humankind and the World is a process that unfolds over time. It is not a one-off/click-of-the fingers event.

    It has actually been underway for quite awhile now, as the person described by Maimonides’ Twelfth Article of Faith has been doing his correcting/educating/counter-balancing work down here on terra firma since late 1995.

    Readers of this article and these comments may like to answer the following Multiple Choice Question. (I have presented it to quite a few people since 2002.) How you answer it says a lot about your frame of reference/religious beliefs/Judaism.

    in reply to: Where is Har Sinai?? #1516433

    Har Sinai, the place where Moses brought down the Ten Commandments circa 1280 bce, is situated in the southern corner of the Sinai Peninsula, Egypt.

    Coordinates: 28°32′23″N 33°58′24″E

    We lived in Di Zahav, Sinai for 9 months from May 2013 to early Feb. 2014. I have done a great deal of research on the Exodus story, תכלת etc.

    P.S. I believe Shavuot is the most important of the Jewish Holy Days. Why? No Moses and the Ten Commandments = No Western Civilisation.
