What Miracle Can Be Greater?

editor 15 May 2018

By Marvin Hier.. Fortunate are we and our children and grandchildren that we live at a time in history where with our own eyes we have seen the fulfilment of this great miracle. I remember in my Yeshiva days reading about the great 18th Century scholar, Rabbi Yaakov Emden’s commentary that the continued existence of the Jewish people is a miracle as great or even greater than G-d’s splitting of the Red Sea. Miracles greater than at the time of the Exodus? No way.

US envoy says Jerusalem under Israel is ‘model for coexistence in the world’

editor 27 April 2018

By Raphael Ahren.. David Friedman says Trump’s recognition of holy city as Israel’s capital was meant to ‘extend an olive branch to all major religions’. Jerusalem under Israeli sovereignty is a “model for coexistence” among the three major monotheistic religions, the US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman said Monday (April 23, 2018). At a panel discussion in the capital, the envoy also said intelligence cooperation between the two countries has saved American lives. At the same time, he expressed concern over young Americans’ weakening connection to Israel.

editor 25 April 2018

By Benjamin Netanyahu – GPO.. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu remarks at the Menachem Begin Heritage Center event marking Israel’s 70th anniversary (April 23, 2018). Thank you Herzi Makov, and thank you distinguished diplomats and friends. It’s an honor for me to be here at the Menachem Begin Heritage Center. We’re celebrating Israel’s 70th anniversary, and we can celebrate at the same time, and for good reason, for three reasons Menachem Begin’s legacy. There are many reasons to celebrate Begin’s legacy, but I believe that three things make him stand out as a true hero of our people.
