Israel Forever

Shalom friends,

One year ago the world was thrust into sorrow at the loss of one of the world’s greatest teachers, a spokesman for mankind.

It was once said that Elie Wiesel (Eliezer ben Shlomo Halevi, Z"L) was a defender of Jewish rights and an indefatigable advocate of Israel because he understood that there can’t be freedom in a world in which Jews are persecuted or demonized.

While the demonization and persecutions may not have ceased entirely, his wisdom, his words, his passion, his commitment continue to inspire us. And just as he has perpetuated a connection to the memory of the destruction of yesterday, so, too, can his love for Israel and for Jerusalem perpetuate an understanding of the depth of the connection passed down from generation to generation.
