Three specific areas in need of tikkun are the land of Israel, the physical sciences and global spirituality. Each has some degree of separation from its proper unified state in Torah. As these will be rectified in the Messianic Kingdom, we should see aspects of this occurring as we move closer to that time. This section will present global developments and commentary.
“The Holy One bestowed three gifts (hashpa’ot) to the world and the Torah community of Israel. By not grabbing each of these gifts at the time they were given, the Torah community lost all three to the External Forces (the “Other Side”). Chokmah- wisdom was lost and fell into the hands of the scientists. Eretz Yisrael – the land of Israel, was lost and fell into the hands of the secular Zionists. Teshuva was lost and fell into the hands of assimilated Jews – the Ba’al Teshuva Movement.”
The Gerer Rabbi, as cited in ‘The Secret Doctrine of the Gaon of Vilna’
