Torah Thoughts

At this season 67 years ago in a small hall in Tel Aviv, David Ben Gurion proclaimed words that reverberated around the world: “The Land of Israel was the birthplace of the Jewish people. Here their spiritual, religious and political identity was shaped. Here they first attained to statehood, created cultural values of national and universal significance and gave to the world the eternal Book of Books. After being forcibly exiled from their land, the people kept faith with it throughout their Dispersion and never ceased to pray and hope for their return to it and for the restoration in it of their political freedom. Impelled by this historic and traditional attachment, Jews strove in every successive generation to re-establish themselves in their ancient homeland. In recent decades they returned in their masses. Pioneers and defenders, they made deserts bloom, revived the Hebrew language, built villages and towns, and created a thriving community controlling its own economy and culture, loving peace but knowing how to defend itself, bringing the blessings of progress to all the country's inhabitants, and aspiring towards independent nationhood...” This week in which we celebrated Yom Ha’atzmaut [Israeli Independence Day] may The Jewish State know peace and tranquility and may the inhabitants of Israel go from strength to strength.
Shabbat Shalom
Rabbi Gersh Zylberman
