L. Removing every memento of activities of RCRF.

As women, mothers, and grandmothers from Israel and abroad, we have been actively working with the army and the public, for over ten years to make this a place for Bnei Rachel, all Rachel’s Children,  and a place for the teaching of Derech Eretz.  I am disclosing the facts and the issues and seeking the support of the thousands who have shared and benefitted from RCRF efforts.

In order to continue our programs we need your letters of support as well as your physical participation in our activities and financial support to continue the legal battle to have legal title and ownership to Beit Bnei Rachel properly recorded as those who invested the funds for the purchase of the property and have pledged to continue the dream of developing Beit Bnei Rachel and the activities that will help bring the geulah. Remember, at the beginning there was only one daily bus from Jerusalem to Kever Rachel which averaged only four passengers. When the route was in danger of being discontinued, I publicized this fact and the amount of passengers immediately increased 800%, and the route was saved. I continued to obtain petitions for the Egged #163 bus, and now there are eight daily double public buses between Jerusalem and Kever Rachel. I have been petitioning for even more frequent buses to enable people to pray at Kever Rachel for longer periods of time and enable even more people to attend the activities in our building. I have also been instrumental in linking a young man who wanted to walk to Kever Rachel with HaRav Menachem Porush, OBM. We may not be walking yet, but because of Rav Porush, OBM, and the young man, we are now able to drive directly to the Kever Rachel complex. Daily attendance at the Kever Rachel Complex is steadily increasing and is giving new meaning to the word “foundation.” Join us and help us work together to reclaim and  rebuild. It says on the RCRF Torah, “The roots of the past are the foundation of the future.” Come see our fig tree and pomegranate tree that we planted so many years ago, blooming in our backyard. Come learn about our tradition’s ancient truths for remedying the modern day problems we are suffering. Come make this the show place of our true foundation, Ima Rachel, a role model for the whole world. “Remember, a visit to Israel without going to Kever Rachel is like going home without seeing your mother.”

Any financial support should be sent to RCRF, 60 West End Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11235. All contributions to this 501(c)(3) charitable corporation are tax deductible and will be used for the foundation’s efforts to develop and maintain Beit Bnei Rachel and to bring Derech Eretz to the world through the legacy of Rachel Imeinu

Question: If Abraham was commanded to circumcise his descendants on the eighth day, why do Arabs – who claim to descend from Abraham through Yishmael – wait until their children are 13 to circumcise them? I am aware that this is a matter of little consequence to our people. Nevertheless, this inconsistency is one that piques my curiosity.

From rallying Rachel’s children to reclaim their identity and holy roots, to purchasing and delivering a Sefer Torah to the empty un-walled streets in front of Rachel’s Tomb, to petitioning to have regular scheduled trips of Egged buses eight times daily, Rachel’s Children Reclamation Foundation now finds itself in a dilemma: whether to be silent like Rachel or cry like Rachel.

Rachel’s Children Reclamation Foundation hosted a yahrzeit commemoration at the Manhattan Beach Jewish Center.
