Israel Forever

Shalom friends,

For 2000 years there was not a Jew in the world whose well-being was not ultimately in the hands of non-Jewish regimes. Much of Jewish history is written as a tragedy and last week we marked a time when the non-Jewish world seemed divided only between the genocidal and indifferent. Today we still face the pervasive evils of terrorism, at home and abroad, carried out for the simple fact that we are Jews.

Just about every individual in Israel, every citizen, is personally connected to a friend, family member or acquaintance that gave their lives for our Jewish State.

Today we mourn their absence, and tomorrow, we will celebrate their sacrifice that helped perpetuate the ideals of Zionism and maintain the State of Israel for the past 69 years.

The Club No One Wants To Belong To
By Pnina Weiss

Every Israeli has a compelling story well worth listening to. Not all of them have perfectly happy endings, but, when you put them all together, they add up to what makes Israel the amazing nation that it is. Life isn’t always meant to be easy, and – more often than not – the hardships you go through make you appreciate what is really important and what must never be taken for granted.
