Just one day before leaving for the USA, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stood before the Western Wall in Jerusalem. What his prayer was, we can only guess. This trip, is of vital importance and every word and action will be watched and heavily criticized.
As he was preparing to board the plane for America the PM stated:
A few days before the Fast of Esther, I am leaving for Washington on a fateful, even historic mission. I feel that I am the emissary of all Israelis, even those who disagree with me, of the entire Jewish People. I am deeply and genuinely concerned for the security of all Israelis, for the fate of the nation, and for the fate of our people and I will do my utmost to insure our future.
Just a short while ago the Prime Minister was warmly received by AIPAC. As always he was eloquent and to the point, however, before he left the podium the naysayers were on the attack. Sadly, some of the most vile critics are right here in Israel.
We ask all of you to Please, Pray for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as he prepares to speak before the US Congress. The events unfolding on the world theater are becoming more, and more dangerous, especially to little Israel on the front line.
Pray that the Lord will guide the words of our PM and open the ears of those who until now have refused to hear.
A longtime, close friend of ours in Israel is in urgent need of prayer.
Irene has been diagnosed with an aneurysm in her left eye and her doctors fear she will lose her eyesight.
Doctors are unable to operate at this time, but they are hopeful that a new course of medications will be without side effects, and subsequently allow them to perform the necessary surgery to repair the aneurysm.
The operation is very delicate and risky. Our dear friend is very concerned, as are we all.
Irene believes strongly in the power of prayer. Earlier today as we spoke with her, she remarked:
“Tell the world~I need all the Prayers I can get!”
Please, Pray for Irene…
We are asking for prayers to insure that the current treatment will be effective, and that the doctors will soon be able to perform the vital surgery to save her vision.
Rabbi Berel Wein, uncovers the events that occurred after the Holocaust, leading to the establishment of the State of Israel. What was termed “Liberation” had a different meaning to the victims of Nazi terror. Suddenly, after years of horror, torture, starvation and other atrocities, the survivors of the prison camps were “set free”. The problem was, what were they to do now? The sick, starving mass of humanity had no homes or family to go back to, no resources with which to move forward, in short there was no place for them to go.
It is our duty to remind ourselves of our history, and to pass it on to the next generation…Rabbi Berel Wein
