avazleolam: Yes, there are fanatic Mishechistim (believe that the Rebbe is alive), and yes, though it’s really awful, there are a few who say about the Rebbe “Yechi Adoneinu Moreinu Elokeinu Boreinu Verabbeinu Melech Hamoshiach leolam vo’ed” ( Alive is Our Master our teacher our god and creator our Rebbe,… The problem is, if moshiach can be someone who has already passed away, why would...
Today is 64 years since the creation of the State of Israel. Probably the most important event for Jews in 2000 years. In 1948, we finally had our original homeland back. Our prayers and tears of 2000 years had been answered and we were granted independence. We are living in one of the most amazing times in Jewish history. Only 100 years ago, this was something that people dreamed of. But we...
Dialogue Between Menachem Begin and US National...
After a US-Israel meeting, Prime Minister Menachem Begin told Brzezinski that the draft statement was acceptable except for two sentences.
Menachem Begin: Please delete ‘The United States affirms Israel’s inherent right to exist.
Zbigniew Brzezinski: Why so?
Begin: Because the United States’ affirmation of Israel’s right to exist is not a favor, nor is it a negotiable concession. I shall not negotiate my existence with anybody, and I need nobody’s affirmation of it.
Brzezinski: But to the best of my knowledge every Israeli prime minister has asked for such a pledge.
Begin: I sincerely appreciate the president’s sentiment, but our Hebrew Bible made that pledge and established our right over our land millennia ago. Never, throughout the centuries, did we ever abandon or forfeit that right. Therefore, it would be incompatible with my responsibilities as prime minister of Israel were I not to ask you to erase this sentence. Please delete, too, the language regarding the commitment to Israel’s survival.
Brzezinski: And in what sense do you find that objectionable?
Begin: In the sense that we, the Jewish people alone, are responsible for our country’s survival, no one else.
Today is Yom Hazikaron. The day when we remember the fallen soldiers of Israel and the victims of terror. The heroes who died so that we could live. They will all be remembered. We must never forget that our soldiers and victims died for a reason. They paid the ultimate price for their people and died al kiddush Hashem. Do not despair in your pain. Be comforted, my people because the day of our...
I am making another declaration.
communismkills: If you are against the state of Israel, if you are against the nation of Israel, if you believe in a two-state solution with Hamas as the government, if you believe in a one-state solution with a Jewish minority, if you believe Hamas is a bunch of freedom-fighters, if you think Israel is an apartheid state, if you are anti-Zionism, if you think Zionism is Nazism, if you want to...
Ready? Okay. Go!: Why didn't Zionist leaders... →
readyokaygo: Because Zionist leaders cared more about creating a Jewish state in Palestine than they did about saving Jews from Hitler. “There was an immigration bill, the Stratton bill, which I think admitted about 400,000 people, if I remember, to the United States, very few Jews among them. Plenty of… How dare you. You have the audacity to claim that Zionist leaders didn’t care...
We’ve just completed the festival of Pesach for the year 5772. It is the festival of our freedom from Egypt which we commemorate every year. I pray that this year of 5772, we witness the ultimate freedom. The end to our overdue exile. This year there should be no fasting on Tisha B’Av. In preparation for moshiach, I’d like to announce the following steps that I believe Israel...
HaMikdash: Handy Guide To Duchaning This Pesach →
hamikdash: Review of the Halachos of Birkas Kohanim (Priestly Blessing). Kohain brothers: Be ready this Yom Tov with the following kitzur-halachos of duchaning (Ashkenazi): 1. The Kohanim do NOT say “Am Kidushecha K’amor” at the beginning (Mishna Berura 128:38) It amazes me how many Kohanim mistakenly… Thanks for this
