Pretty torn up about fascism and antisemitism today, y'all.

I know too many people who have narrowly survived various right wing attacks.

The last words we sing in the Synagogue on Yom Kippur are "Next Year in Jerusalem". It's a prayer for the coming of the Moshiach. It's said that the messiah will come because of our righteous actions, through us repairing the world with justice and kindness.

In a way, when we do Gd's work in the form of justice and kindness, we are embodying the Messiah and building the World to Come.
Franz Kafka put it like this, "The messiah will come only when he is no longer necessary; he will come only on the day after his arrival."

If you're ever wondering how to console me when antisemitism has me down, talk to your coworkers about forming a union, talk to your neighbors about how you'd have there back during the revolution, sticker your neighborhood with anticapitalist and antifascist propaganda. Build the World to Come with me.
