Situated in the south of Jerusalem, the project benefits from one of the city’s most prestigious and desirable locales, nestled in a particularly attractive area between the Talpiot neighborhood and the green groves of Kibbutz Ramat Rachel.
And yet I have a dream that mankind will wake up from this insane existence and discover, like our father Jacob, that “surely, Hashem is present in this place and I did not know!” (Bereishis 28:16).
Please read this description of the end of history: “In the End of Days, after the Children of Israel have returned to their land, the children of Ishmael and the children of Esau will unite to attack Jerusalem. They will form a world coalition against the tiny nation of Israel.” (From the commentary of the Malbim on Ezekiel 32:17, as cited in 2020 VISION.)
Sound familiar? Maybe a little like today’s headlines?
Would you like to know what’s coming next? Ezekiel continues: “But something will go wrong with their plan. The religious beliefs of the children of Ishmael and the children of Esau will clash, and the two nations will collide and destroy each other . Following this cataclysmic conflict, the Final Redemption of the Jewish People will occur with the coming of Messiah the Son of King David.”
If we believe in the dream and hold on tightly to God and His Torah, we will weather this and all other storms. We will see a world bursting with light, a world of peace and justice, a world in which “Torah goes forth from Zion and the Word of G0d from Yerushalayim” (Isaiah 2:3).
May we all soon gaze upon the light of the menorah in the rebuilt Bais HaMikdash.

I can tell you that Cablevision has been astonished at how high we rank.
Former Connecticut senator Joe Lieberman, writing in the Washington Post on Sunday, provided one of the clearest and most compelling analyses we’ve seen of the importance of the prime minister’s speech.
A central concept in any discussion about happiness is achieving clarity. “Ain simcha ela k’hataras hasefeikos” – there is no joy as that experienced with the removal of doubt.

For Am Yisrael, the sun’s movements are subservient to the purpose of our existence.
Our rabbis told us it’s going to be very difficult before Mashiach comes. Should we fool ourselves?
The unwarranted hatred among us that caused the destruction of the Second Temple clearly still plagues us.
At the end of the harvest, winter begins. The earth becomes cold and hard, nights are long, and the sun seems far away in the southern sky. The sap ceases to flow in the trees. But in this season of temporary “death” Hashem sends down harbingers of coming life in the form of tal u’matar livrachah – dew and rain for a blessing – upon the earth.
“Logically” speaking, after the millennia of hatred and destruction directed against us, there should not be one Jew in the world today who still keeps the Torah.
They were lining up for gas masks in Israel.
Apparently, at the very time of year we are supposed to be full of simcha, Hashem wants us to be aware of the possibility of danger. Indeed, during the Yom Tov of Sukkos, we read cataclysmic haftaras dealing with the ultimate war, the Milchemes Gog Umagog. Where does that war take place? In the Holy Land, of course, where the eyes of the world are always focused.
