Bnei Akiva Reunion

Bnei Akiva of North America (and Hashomer Hadati) will be 70 years young this year. A reunion of all former members (Chaverim) is being planned for Thanksgiving weekend (November 27-30, 2003) in Jerusalem. More than 2,000 former Chaverim from Israel and about 800 from the U.S.A. and Canada are expected to attend. It should be a great experience for bogrim of all ages from Bnei Akiva, Camp Moshava, and the various Hachsharot. Nosan Friedman, Itchie Fuchs and Steve Frankel are coordinating the event.

The main event, an evening of nostalgia and reunion, is scheduled to be held in the Jerusalem Convention Center (Binyaney HaUmah) on Thursday evening, November 27, between 6:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. Much of the evening will be spent viewing the exhibits of old photos and mementos, socializing with Chaverim, and visiting the booths of the exhibitors planning to display their products at the convention. A special short program saluting the contribution of North American Bnei Akiva Chaverim to Israel is being produced. Those willing to lend pictures, videos and other paraphernalia from the past should contact Steve Frankel c/o Bnei Akiva, Suite 205, 7 Penn Plaza, NY 10001, or Frannie Abell, Harimon 23, Yishuv Hashmonaim, 73127, Israel (08) 976-6539.

A journal, to include greetings from both advertisers and Chaverim will be published. Greetings from Chaverim by Snif, Mosh, Hach and/or Shevet and a special set of pages for those who want to include their “jewels” (children or grandchildren), will be included. A list of all of those who pre-register will be included at no extra charge. Former Chaverim from the USA who cannot come but would like to be listed in the Journal for a small fee, should contact me via email or via the BA office. Email updates and the placement of your name on the list of Chaverim may be requested by sending me an email at reunion@bneiakiva.net.

The group coming from North America will be able to purchase flights and hotels at special rates (Contact Stuart Katz at (516) 825-0966 x102). Each participant from abroad travelling via Bnei Akiva will receive free admission to the event in Binyanei Hauma. An optional program of side trips, a full Shabbat program and a Melava Malka on Saturday night are also being planned. Those living in Israel are invited to participate in any or all of the events of the weekend.

There are two web sites where additional information may be found: www.bneiakiva.net has old photos and other information and www.bneiakiva.org allows North Americans to register. Those living in North America may also contact their nearest Bnei Akiva office for more information. Please pass this information to your friends who were former Chaverim and come join the fun!

IDF soldier injured in Gaza is evacuated by helicopter to Soroka hospital.

The residents of Gaza were not occupied by the Hamas; they voted for the terror organization in democratic elections, by a huge majority, by virtue of its uncompromising struggle against Israel. For this reason, the separation between the armed Hamas terrorists and those ‘not involved’ or ‘innocents’ is false. The Gazans are now paying for […]

Should Jews in Europe take more responsibility in self-defense of community and property?

Germany’s The Jewish Faith newspaper ominously noted, “We Jews are in for a war after the war.”

The truth is we seldom explore with kids what prayer is supposed to be about.

Almost as one, Jews around the world are acknowledging the day-to-day peril facing ordinary Jews in Israel and the extraordinary service of the IDF in protecting them.

So on the one hand Secretary Kerry makes no bones about who is at fault for the current hostilities: he clearly blames Hamas.

King Solomon said it long ago: “Cast your bread upon the waters” because you don’t know when you’ll hit something. Our job is to do.

The anti-Israel camp does not need to win America fully to its side. Merely to neutralize it would radically alter the balance of power and put Israel in great jeopardy.

We mourn the dead, wish a speedy recovery to the wounded, and pray that God guides the government.

The Drama Mamas are not an ordinary theater troupe. “When we audition actresses,” says Elisheva, who also serves as the show’s director, “we like to explain to them that the main qualification is that you can honestly say, I have never been on a stage before, but I have always wanted to be an actress!”

It really is time for painful sacrifices for peace. No one wants his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren to suffer the pangs of war and strife. It is time to end the strife and make peace in the Middle East.

Israel is a country that understands security concerns. Many civil rights have been sacrificed in the name of security and Israelis are used to being checked every time they enter a shopping center, a large store or any public building. Americans recently learned that they, too, are subject to many checks on their most private activities.

The Israeli Parliament is usually controlled by a coalition of different political parties because no one party receives enough votes to have a majority. Unlike in the U.S., where there are two major political parties and one of the two political parties commands a majority of the seats in the Senate and/or in the House, in Israel the government is composed of many, many small political parties, each pushing its own agenda.
