Knowledge Dear Rabbi,
Chassidic teaching (I may be wrong!) says we are born with the knowledge of Torah. Therefore, when we turn to studying Torah with all our heart out of genuine love for HaShem then the knowledge will be re-awakened and the meaning of Torah revealed. The consequence of this is 'action' wanting to undertake mitzvahs and change our lives.
Is it possible then, that with the coming Messiah everyone will be instantly re-awakened to the knowledge of Torah and therefore with awe for HaShem the desire to do what is right will result in only positive human action?

Thank you, for this interesting discussion. Reply
