Fulfillment of Human Potential


Creating stability and peace of mind should be a purpose of society. This is accomplished by adopting a structure based on the 7 Noahide Laws, which allow everyone to live in harmony.

The Fulfillment Of Our Human Potential: Guidelines For Society

Even before the Jewish year 5751 (19’90-19’91) began, the Rebbe stated that it would be a year in which G-d’s promise to His people would be fulfilled – that “I will show you wonders.” [1] And indeed, the year was filled with a series of wondrous events which when recounted stagger the imagination – the Gulf War, the mass immigration of Jews to the Land of Israel, and the complete collapse of communism [in the Former Soviet Union], to cite a few.

It was events nearer home, however, that perhaps explain why in the course of his talks, the Rebbe chose to speak of concepts relevant to mankind as a whole. His statements touched on the ultimate purpose for any community and on the universal values around which any society should be structured.

We have taken these points, which were originally scattered throughout the course of talks focusing on other subjects, and arranged them as an independent essay. It is our hope that the ideals they champion will help motivate men of all faiths to join hands together to usher the world into its ultimate state of fulfillment – to the era in which “Nation will not lift up sword against nation, nor will they learn war any more” [2] – with the coming of the ultimate Redemption. May this take place speedily, in our days.
