When I think about the miracle of the continued existence of our nation, it is as astounding to me as the exodus from Mitzrayim. ~ R’ Yaakov Emden zt”l
Why is it so amazing? In his Hagaddah, Rabbi Frand answers, because we say in the Haggadah “but in every generation they rise against us to annihilate us. ”
How can a tiny nation survive endless attempts at annihilation by nations with overwhelming advantages in both size and power?
There is only one answer:
“… and the Holy One, Blessed is He, rescues us from their hand.”
