The Israel-Edom Seesaw

A Torah Thought for Parashat Devarim 

By Moshe Feiglin

Our Sages teach that Jerusalem and Rome, which represents Edom’s capital, have a symbiotically inverse relationship: When one ascends, the other descends.
It will be reality, a.k.a. G-d, Who will avenge the rivers of Jewish blood spilled by Edom. It is mind-boggling to witness the crumbling of the 2,000 year old civilization that emerged from Rome. Those who want their children to be able to manage in America or Europe one generation from now, had best teach them Arabic or Spanish.
Rome is descending. Jerusalem is on its way up.
Shabbat Shalom.
