The Jewish View on Suffering

Jews speak about suffering from experience.

For the first time since King Solomon, the Jews are experiencing a degree of peace. Despite the state of Israel constantly facing attack, nevertheless it is a sovereign nation with its own army. Rabbi Simon Jacobson speaks about suffering today being on a more psychological level. When running for your life there is no room to think about abuse and depression. The ability to forge ahead with resilience distinguishes the Jews more than their suffering.
