It is unclear why the FBI decided to go after AIPAC officials.

Learning Anew From The Rav

A Jew who participates in the suffering of his nation and its fate, but does not join in its destiny, which is expressed in a life of Torah and mitzvot, destroys the essence of Judaism and injures his own uniqueness.

Retail Kings
