It would be hard to put into words the suffering the Jewish people have
experienced during this terrible exile without repeating clichés like “rivers of
tears” or “seas of blood”
Building Tomorrow recalls the words of the Jerusalem Talmud that if you live
in a generation that did not see the Temple rebuilt, it is because you and your
generation are behaving toward one another in precisely the same way as the
generation that caused its destruction.
This book offers practical advice on how to combat the scourge of Sinas
Chinam. It also offers practical advice on interpersonal relationships and how to
make them work.
In addition, Building Tomorrow contains new translations of two essential
works that address this topic, the Chafetz Chaim’s Ahavas Yisrael and the first
chapter of Rav Moshe Cordovero’s Tomer Devorah.
Building Tomorrow is an important tool for any Jew who is committed to
playing his or her part to building a tomorrow where the curse of sinas
chinam is gone for good and the Third Temple returns forever to stand shining
in Yerushalayim, Hashem’s golden city.
