Rabbi Daniel Mechanic
The difficulties of the modern generation regarding their stances on belief in the truth of the Torah and its applications to our everyday lives. Despite all the mentoring and inspirations, so many were unable to provide an adequate answer to the basic “why” of what we believe and do.
The reason for this unfortunate fact is the increasing power of society’s allure to disregarding the teachings of the Torah. As Rabbi Mechanic put it, “Today’s Yetzer Hara (evil inclination) is armed with nuclear weapons 24-7!” He elaborated that these weapons are the prevalent usages of the internet, television, and videos in the modern age. Which intrudes upon the lives of so many and creates so much strife in the spiritual lives of the younger generation. This problem is the leading factor behind the too common assimilation occurring in the last several years.
