Fulfillment of the Dream

When the modern Jewish State was reborn on May 14, the entire Jewish world felt the impact.
Fulfilling the dream of generations before us that we would, some day, finally, live as a free nation in our land.

And yet mankind is not listening. Instead they refuse to recognize the manipulations and lies being fed to them by biased media, educators and academics, politicians and activists.

While the miracle of Israel's successes should evoke awe, they arouse ire. While Jews seek to live in peace in our homeland and around the world with our neighbors and friends of all faiths, races and creed, we are deprived of the right to coexistence because of the demonization central to the image of the Jew and Jews distorted in every way.

Instead, there are more lives stolen by hate and war. This year's number of fatalities represent a staggering percentage of the 30,140 who were remembered on Memorial Day - 766 soldiers and 834 civilians out of 25,040 soldiers and 5,100 killed in terrorist attacks in the Land of Israel since the mid-1800s. The numbers grow each year, as does our collective pain. How we channel it, mobilize from it, is dependent on carrying the vision and fulfilling the dream.

These are the words of our Hatikvah sung with fervor at the first Zionist Congress, after the liberation of the death camps, and around the world today. These are the words that continue to guide us as we battle the forces who seek to defeat our rights to Jewish nationalism and our Jewish home.

With the national days of mourning and commemoration behind us, we continue our fight for freedom and security.

We continue to stand by our soldiers, in their determination to eliminate the enemy whose evil will be eradicated.

And we continue to proclaim our declarations of Israel's Independence - today, and forever.


Let us remember the brave members who voted for statehood and war, rather than for the truce and subsequent postponement of the Jewish state. As a result of the courage, the dream of the State of Israel was fulfilled.



ERETZ-ISRAEL (the Land of Israel) was the birthplace of the Jewish people. Impelled by this historic and traditional attachment, Jews strove in every successive generation to re-establish themselves in their ancient homeland.



Today, I’m proud to see the Israeli flag as I travel around Israel. It’s a constant reminder that we’ve established the Jewish State, and I’m proud of how far we’ve come.



The path to Jewish independence did not begin with the establishment of the State of Israel, it is an ancient journey that is still unfinished. And it is important to remember and teach the next generations that our independence relies not on any other body or determination in the world. It is ourself-determinationand collective will that preserves our rightful freedom from the persecution imposed by the world again and again.


This week, we marked Yom HaZikaron, Yom HaAtzmaut, and Declaration Day, when we reaffirmed Israel's freedom, rights, and independence.

We invited declarations of support from leaders, influencers, creators, and Virtual Citizens to take a stand against the forces that are out to negate our existence, and show the world we are stronger, together, and we will not bow in fear or allow ourselves to be defeated.

But our support of the Land and People of Israel, and our ancient and eternal connection, is not limited to just one date on the calendar.

We invite you to sign the Declaration of Jewish Rights and declare your pride as a VCI.

Explore our resources on Jewish identity, unity, and peoplehood, and support our efforts to foster the future of knowledge and connection to our history, heritage, and homeland.
