Shields, Bows & Arrows – IDF attacks PIJ in Gaza

Last week, we told you about the Islamic Jihad terrorists in Gaza who launched 104 missiles in to Israel. Today the retaliation came from the IDF. In an operation dubbed “Magen v’Chetz” (Shield & Arrow) the Israel Air Force (IAF) eliminated 3 top Islamic Jihad leaders in precision, simultaneous targeted assassinations. A military spokesman said […]

Missiles Launched on Israel – Are we seeing miracles?

This week, terrorists in Gaza launched 104 missiles and mortars into southern Israel in response to a Palestinian Islamic Jihad leader dying in an Israeli prison after an 86-day hunger strike. Our Israeli-made Iron Dome anti-missile system is smart enough to let projectiles headed for open areas to fall harmlessly, but missiles headed for population […]

Israel’s Independence Day – A time to sing??

“Yom Ha’atzmaut – Israel Independence Day!” This week, we are celebrating Yom Ha’atzmaut in Israel. Literally translated it means Independence Day. On the 5th of the Hebrew month of Iyar, in 1948, David Ben Gurion proclaimed Israel as an independent Jewish State in its Land for the first time in over 2,000 years (since the […]

What are the Protests in Israel REALLY About?

For the 12th week in a row, there were protests on Saturday night around the country, primarily in “left wing, secular” strongholds. The biggest protests were in Tel Aviv as seen in the photo above. Based on the banner above, you might think the protests are against Netanyahu personally, but the protests are supposedly about […]

Ephraim and Yehuda United – Rebuilding the Temple

As we approach Tisha B’av, the anniversary of the destruction of the Temples in Jerusalem I wanted to share this story with you. My friend A.Y. Katsof pictured above left is an Ashkenazi Jew who currently lives with his family in biblical Samaria. The press would consider him a “settler.” In 1999 when he discovered […]

Israel is the World’s 4th Happiest Country

The results for UN’s 2023 World Happiness Report look at the extremely challenging three year period of 2020 – 2022. After Finland, Denmark and Iceland — Israel was the happiest country in the world… way ahead of the USA (#15), Canada (#13) and United Kingdom (#19)!

How to be happy when the Iranians want to destroy us!

When the month of Adar arrives, joy increases! How do we do that in the face of annihilation? How can we be happy when our Iranian enemies are pushing ahead with their plan to destroy the State of Israel? This isn’t the first time a madman in Iran (Persia) has threatened the Jewish people with […]

Fighting for Democracy in Israel?

You may be confused by the headlines coming from Israel. Large protests are taking place against the Netanyahu Government’s proposed reforms to reduce the power of the Supreme Court’s ability to strike down laws passed by the Knesset. I’d have to give a one-hour zoom session to explain in detail what is really happening, but […]

New Israeli Government – Same old Anti-Israel Hyperbole from the world

This week Prime Minister Netanyahu’s new government was finally installed. As we’ve mentioned, it is a Right-Wing/Religious coalition which is opposed to many policies of the succession of progressive, leftist governments who have slowly made “democratic values” more important than “Jewish values” in the Jewish State. Similar in a way to the MAGA – America […]

Joseph Revealing Himself to His Brothers

This week’s Torah portion, VaYigash (Gen. 44:18-47-27) is one of the most dramatic in the entire Torah. After having been rejected and sold into slavery in Egypt by his own brothers, Joseph rose to be the viceroy. When famine struck Canaan and Egypt the brothers were forced to descend to Egypt to buy some food. […]
