Question about Judaism’s View on God and the World.

Hello, I would like to preface this by saying I have no pre-existing knowledge on this question or in regards to any religion in general. I am writing a report which requires me to comment of Judaism, and I feel asking here will give me a more accurate representation as the question seems opinionated.

How does Judaism view fantasizing ideal/perfect worlds or situations?

For context the character is a Jewish teenager who strictly adheres to religion and is studying to become a Cohen (I think that’s the word, ‘priest’ of sorts?) He is in the holocaust and begins to actively daydream about a perfect world, a world where everything is peaceful and free.

To what I researched Judaism views the world as neither holy nor perfect. But the world is created by God convenes with people to make the world perfect through their actions. Is this characters strong desire and longing for this ideal world, at all against his religion, or opposes God?

Thank you for your time.

I apologise if I got anything wrong, please correct me.
