Israel as ‘Golus by Jews’? We Never Had it Better!

Take note: the ugly "golus by Jews" hashkafah places you right down there with the world's anti-Semites, who accuse Israel of apartheid.

An absolute rejection of the ugly hashkafah will hopefully signal the beginning of a new era of love and friendship between Jew and fellow Jew. When you truly see the hand of Hashem in action for the past sixty-six years, you will want to say with great kavanah the prayer for the State and for the soldiers who risk their lives day and night so that we can all live safely in G-d’s land.

  1. I just learned of Rabbi Gold from this article and he is clearly a very good man and a talmid chacham — see here: http://rabbisholomgold.com/profile.php

    BUT. It saddens me so very much to see Jews fighting with each other and demanding apologies from each other and accusing each other of chilulei hashem. I wish we could all just respond with gentleness to each other even when we think the other guy is profoundly wrong, as I do think the Charedim are profoundly wrong on the issues Rabbi Gold discusses.

  2. Molly Ratner says:

    I was very disappointed and upset at the Jewish Press when Yanover was fired for his sensationalist headline, a headline which really, as you know, said it as it is.
    With Rabbi Gold's article, you have redeemed yourselves somewhat.
