The Obligation to Protest and The Obligation to Settle the Entire Land of Israel
by Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson
Edited by Shimon Neubort
Translated by: Mordechai E. Sones and Yankel Koncepolski
One can find countless references to the inviolate right of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel scattered among the scores of volumes of writings and talks by the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson. The fact that this information was uncollated material, made it difficult for those who wish to know the Rebbes directives in this matter. For this reason, and especially in light of the critical security situation in Israel today, we, the editors, present this book, When Silence is a Sin, which provides an organized approach to the Rebbes stance regarding the security of the Land of Israel.
The book contains three sections:
- The obligation to protest. This section quotes the Rebbes public addresses regarding the obligation encumbent upon every Jew — and especially the Rabbis — to vehemently oppose the ceding of any part of the Land of Israel to non-Jews. In these addresses the Rebbe explains in detail the need for such an outcry, ways of publicizing it, chances for its success, and more.
- The main thing is action. This section discusses the practical directives which the Rebbe issues to each and every individual Jew for assuring Jewish sovereignty over the Land of Israel, and for enhancing the security of those who live there.
- The obligation to settle the entire land. This section contains the Rebbes talks on this important topic. This is naturally one of the most essential methods of ensuring the security of Israel and her inhabitants. Some of the topics treated are: the reason why it is obligatory for Jews, to settle the entire area of the Land of Israel; which areas are especially in need of settlement; what the positive consequences of such settlement are, how to accomplish this, and more.
