A Time Of Promise


Ganz-071114

Our miracle, however, is not yet complete. Changing the human landscape is infinitely more challenging than building another highway, although in a democratic system, an influx of frum Jews from the Diaspora could bring about great changes. But to speak ill of Hashem’s Land and people is a blatant example of dibat ha’Aretz. The one thing we do not want to do is to repeat the sin of the Meraglim!

Meanwhile, we are still waiting. We don’t know when or how Mashiach will arrive, and there is still much to do, but in Eretz Yisrael ripples of redemption are wafting in the air.Today we mourn; tomorrow we shall rejoice. For Tishah B’Av is a day of hope, the day Mashiach was born. The Churban will not last forever.

Chazal tell us that the Land of Israel is acquired through tribulations – through yissurim. These are yissurim shel ahava – bonds of love,well worththe awesome gift of Eretz Yisrael. With Hashem’s Mighty Arm and His helping hand, we continue to move forward. Thankful for all we have merited and full of faith, we look forward to the Geulah Hashleyma, speedily, in our days.

 

Your sun shall set no more, your moon no more withdraw;
for G-d shall be a light to you forever and your days of mourning shall be ended.
Your people, they are all righteous. They shall inherit the Land for all time.
I am Hashem. In its time I will hasten it [Yishaya 60, 20-22].

  5. The only problem is every vessel created is tamei because we are all tamei. Until the parah adumah ashes cleanse us. At the time of the Mashiach it will be done.

  6. Our boys did not die in vain. They were taken as messengers. We will destroy terrorism and attain peace in Israel. It was a sign to never give them land but rather take more to protect Israeli citizens. They are our heroes. Thank you Hamas for unifying us on our mission to destroy you and all terrorists once and for all.
