Who Will Be Saved?

Question

Dear rabbi, with due respect I ask you this question: I think that crime (murder, corruption etc.) is increasing day by day. Now, I think there will be a day when everybody will joke at honest people – there will be millions of wicked people and very few, and maybe even only one or two honest people. But, at that time will Hashem save them? Or will they be tortured by the hands of the wicked people? Thank you.

  1. I do not know. It is clear from Jewish theology that there will be righteous people left at the End of Days, but there is no indication that who will actually survive and who will not. The Rabbis teach that there is so much uncertainty as to what will be, that it is better not to try and “second-guess” God. That means that we should all just do our best to fulfill His Will.
