God in Galut
We understand that God’s presence rested in the Temple and after its destruction God went into exile with the Jewish People. Join Rabbi Yehoshua Geller as he explores the idea of God in exile (galut) and the Jewish People’s struggles to redefine their relationship with the Almighty.
God in Galut: Hashem is there with us in our distress
We reviewed perek 91 of Tehilim focusing on the last 2 psukim,
We reviewed the commentaries that discuss the protection of Hashem is dependent on our connection to Hashem, as well as the Malbim who says that the pasuk is teaching us that Hashem is there with us in our distress, and that our salvation is his salvation.
