This year the first night of Hanukkah will coincide with the American holiday of Thanksgiving. American Rabbi Benjamin Blech of Aish Torah quips, “It will never again happen in our lifetimes—unless you are somehow still alive 70,000 years from now. The latkes will share their prominent place at the festive meal with the turkey. Small wonder that some have already humorously decided that this year we ought to call the day by a new name—Thanksgivukkah.” It is an interesting coincidence and American rabbis are having a field day drawing many reflective interpretations around this unique calendar event. This year we can enjoy a both a little humor and a little spiritual insight of our Chanukah celebrations. Continue reading
The recent news concerning the United States negotiations with Iran over its nuclear program is extremely troubling on many levels. Iran’s nuclear program is a very direct threat to the security of the State of Israel and it seems that the entire world understands this with the exception of Israel’s greatest ally, the US and the Obama administration. I’ve posted two excellent articles from this week’s Israel National News that I’d like to share. Witten by two very respected Israeli authors. Noah Beck provides an outline of the poisonous geopolitical “stew” which is brewing. Moshe Kempinski provides a lesson from the weekly portion on Jacob and Esau and how Torah teaches us to deal with enemies. I found them both enlightening and hope you will too. Please keep Israel and all leaders in prayer for courage and wisdom.
Be well, Bob

Today marks the start of the Hebrew calendar year 5774. It is the first celebration of the Fall Festival cycle that we refer to as the High Holidays, which includes Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur. The fall holiday cycle ends with the final festival of Sukkot.
The Bible refers to the holiday as Yom Ha-Zikkaron (the Day of Remembrance) or Yom Teruah (the Day of the Sounding of the Shofar) and is instituted in Leviticus 23:24-25.
“Speak to the people of Israel, saying: In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall observe a day of complete rest, a holy convocation commemorated with trumpet blasts.” Continue reading

Below is an email we received from Jeremy Gimpel from TheLandofIsrael.com about an article he wrote for the Jerusalem Post thanking us for helping to spread Israel’s Message:
Baruch Hashem, as you’ve seen, I’ve been writing a regular column for the Jerusalem Post’s Weekend paper and so far the response has been phenomenal. Ari & I have always communicated through radio and video but it’s been a great experience articulating our ideas and sharing them the good ol’ fashion way.
With your help, our last columns were the most viewed and shared Opinion pieces in the J-Post and I wanted to thank you for helping us spread Israel’s message with the world.
Here’s the latest sneak preview our the newest column:

Another U.N. crock: Targeting Israel, coddling terrorists
Once again displaying its virulent, morally bankrupt anti-Israel bias, the United Nations General Assembly — at the behest of no less a paragon of rectitude than Syria’s embattled Assad regime — has ordered the Jewish state to pay $1.1 million in “damages” for defending itself in 1996 from Hezbollah terrorists near the village of Qana in southern Lebanon.

We received this from Jeremy Gimple and wanted to share it with you.
After returning from a short trip to North America and meeting with activists and leaders there, I felt I had to share this idea about how we must present Israel to the world. It was published in the weekend edition of the Jerusalem Post and is now online. I always enjoy your questions and comments. Thank you for helping us spread Israel’s message with the world.
