You have asked me to speak to you about the soul of Judaism. I have complied with this request, although I am against the cause for which you hold your conference,1 and I am against it not “just as a Jew,” but also truly as a Jew, that is, as one who waits for the Kingdom of God, the Kingdom of Unification, and who regards all such “missions” as yours as springing from a misunderstanding of the nature of that kingdom and as a hindrance to its coming. If, in spite of this, I have accepted your invitation, it is because I believe that when one is invited to share one’s knowledge, one should not ask, “Why have you invited me?” but should share what one knows as well as one can, and that is my intention.
