Across Israel, Meir Panim responds to the growing needs of the country’s 1.75 million impoverished residents through various food and social service programs.
The Republican Party I head sees only one choice – solidarity. I would argue further that the core principals of our party are inherently friendlier to Israel because they are based on the truth of human nature and good and evil. Republicans, unlike our utopian friends in Washington, recognize there is evil in the world, and that evil is emboldened rather than mitigated by concessions and appeasement. Republicans understand that the first and foundational responsibility of securing peace is securing strength.
If Israel is to be safe, if Iran’s nuclear program is to be shut down, then we must recognize that not all political parties are created equally. Ideas have consequences. Elections have consequences. Their results matter not just for America but the world. Israel’s survival requires an America that is strong and a president whose words have meaning and whose promises are kept.
I cannot promise you the outcome of elections this November. I cannot promise what America will do or won’t do. I will, however, promise you this: Republicans across this nation will continue to stand with Israel as we work to secure the future not only for the next generation of Americans, but for the next generation of Israelis as well.

One can almost imagine a shocked Mr. Kerry thinking to himself, “How could he?” Yet not only did Mr. Putin do what he did, China, one of the three major international players along with the U.S. and Russia, agreed with him, not with Mr. Kerry.
Ramaz is a venerable Modern Orthodox educational institution whose mission statement contains the explicit commitment to “Ahavat Yisrael, and love and support for the State of Israel.”
From the earliest moments of American history, before there was a state of Israel, Americans were dreaming dreams of a Jewish homeland. In every generation in each century of American history, the greatest of American patriots and leaders linked the heart of America to the cause of Israel. Why? What is it about America that so deeply connects us to Israel?
