There are certain principles that are so central to the foundation of the United States that they were engraved on its coins and printed on its currency – two fundamental principles: “In G-d We Trust” and “E Pluribus Unum – Out of many, one.”

The English language offers a variety of words to express the idea of faith. ‘Trust’ is not just intellectual belief, nor is it emotional belief. “In G-d We Trust” means to believe in G-d and to rely on Him, to entrust all one’s concerns to Him.

When it comes to ‘belief’ the Talmud says: “A burglar at the mouth of the tunnel calls upon G-d!” He prays to G-d for help. But the fact that he has resorted to thievery proves that he does not trust G-d in his life.

Action is the main thing: What matters most in governing a country, and especially for its highest leader, is to elevate the mindset and behavior of all its citizens; first and foremost, to convey, until it is clear to the entire population: “In G-d We Trust” — that we trust Him in all matters of life, the spiritual as well as the material.

I am a goy American, so grateful to have stumbled upon this, as The Rebbe speaks to me here too. Such an honor!

Eternal Blessings and allegiance,

In God We Trust
I would like to have met Rebbe. If more people would listen to him, and follow our commandments that God has written in Torah, this country USA would not be in the bad shape its in. Thank You for these videos.
