Rav's Message

Dear Friends,

The announcement by President Trump this week officially recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital is an important statement. It acknowledges the reality -- obvious to anyone who has ever visited Israel -- that Jerusalem clearly functions as Israel's capital. The statement reinforces a Congressional act dating back to 1995 which enjoyed heavy bipartisan support and reflects what seems to be the majority opinion of federal lawmakers.

We should express our thanks and support to the President. One way to do so is through this link:

We pray, as well, that the divine "Builder of Jerusalem" thwart the "rage" threatened by those who wish to deny the historic connection between the Jewish people and the Holy City. I think it would behoove us all to recite the blessing of "Rachem" in "bentching" this Shabbos with a little more intensity.

With wishes for a wonderful Shabbos,

Rabbi Zvi Romm

In addition to "political" action, Israel would greatly benefit from "economic" action at this time.
One of the best ways to show your solidarity with Israel is to buy Israel bonds.
The single role of Israel Bonds is to strengthen Israel's economy.
If you have not yet made a purchase of a bond in 2017 please make it NOW!
