Message from a Man in Black…to a Man of Hate

Thursday, August 8th, 2013

I love this video – posted to YouTube around 5 months ago… it’s a message from one Hassidic Jew (representing so many others) to a man of hate (and to so many like him). It was posted before the Jewish holiday of Purim…

Purim is the story of a Persian king, his right hand man who wanted to kill the Jews, a Jewish man and his niece, who becomes the queen. An evil plot… unraveled at the last moment, twisted around to destroy the one who created the plot. It is about justice in the end, but more, it is about the Jewish people and where we put our faith. It is why we defeated Haman, that ancient Persian… and why we will defeat his ancestors – the followers of Ahmadinejad… and today’s “moderate” Iranian president who joined his outgoing colleague just days ago in wishing Israel off the face of this world.

Ari Lesser – you’re great! I hope this video reaches around the world…

Jews and Sports – A Brief History of the Maccabiah

Friday, July 19th, 2013

The 2013 opening ceremony for the 19th Maccabiah Games got under way on Thursday evening, and for the first time in its 81 years, Jerusalem hosted the “Jewish Olympics”.

This is also the largest Maccabiah in history, with 10,000 athletes from 21 countries participating and 30,000 visitors in the crowd.

Here’s a short 5 minute history of the Maccabiah games in Israel.

Tisha B’Av – The Children Are Ready. Are You? (Video)

Tuesday, July 9th, 2013

The “9 days” started yesterday, and I keep seeing “how to survive the 9 days” posts, ways to make the best dairy meals, and how to get past Tisha B’Av in one piece.

The real answer lies in this video: The Children Are Ready.

And they are… we need to get past the Kotel, get past the mindset of 2000 years of exile, and look to the future.

The future is within our grasp…we just need to be ready. Are you?

‘Stop Crying and Let the Children Build the Third Temple’ (Video)

Tuesday, July 9th, 2013

Israel’s Temple Institute, which encourages praying on  the Temple Mount and working to build the Third Temple, has released a video production that shows children taking adults out of synagogue on Tisha B’Av to join them to rebuild the Temple.

The Chief Rabbinate of Israel discourages Jews from praying on the Temple Mount because of Halachic issues, while the Temple Institute and many other rabbis have ruled that Jews can ascend to certain areas of the Temple Mount.

Jews around the world are in the traditional Nine Days, the last part of the three-week period of mourning over the destruction of the First and Second Temples, both of which were destroyed in Tisha B’Av, or the Ninth of the Hebrew month of Av that began on Monday.

The Temple Institute has produced a two and a half minute video entitled “The Children are Ready II,” a sequel to last year’s video at this time.

The video shows men sitting on the floor and reciting the Lamentations that are said on Tisha B’Av, while children decide it is time to bring out their tools and get to work to rebuild the Temple instead of only crying over the past.

They march into the synagogue and convince the adults to leave behind their prayer books and come with them.

“Tisha B’Av is not about just mourning; it is about contemplating a world devoid of the Holy Temple, a house of peace and prayer for all nations, and it’s about asking ‘when will the mourning stop?'” said Rabbi Chaim Richman, international director of the Temple Institute.

“Last year, ‘The Children are Ready’ inadvertently outraged the Arab world with the Egyptian government releasing a formal complaint and rebuttal videos made by Hamas and other Islamist organizations,” the Institute commented Monday.

The Palestinian Authority and the entire Arab world have increasingly published propaganda about Jews trying to take over the Temple Mount and rebuild the Temple, and the new video is likely to cause an uproar among Muslims, particularly since the Muslim holy month of Ramadan begins this week.

669 Rescues Downed F-16 Pilots (Video)

Sunday, July 7th, 2013

The Air Force has released video of its 669 search and rescue unit that brought to safety the pilot and navigator of an F-16i training jet whose engines stopped in mid-air Sunday, forcing the two-man team to eject themselves and parachute into the sea as the jet broke up in mid-air.

They had managed to send out a distress call before ejecting from the plane and waited for approximately one hour in the sea until the rescue team brought them out of danger.

Sec. Camera Shows Man Throwing Brick at LA Temple (Video)

Thursday, January 24th, 2013

Police are searching for a man who vandalized a newly renovated Long Beach temple a few weeks ago, CBSLA.com reported.

The suspect, Caucasian or Hispanic, around 20 to 30 years old and 5-feet-9 to 6-feet tall, was captured on surveillance video throwing a brick at the front window of Temple Israel, at 269 Loma Avenue.

The suspect was wearing light-colored shorts, light-colored jacket with a dark collar, white T-shirt, and dark-colored sandals.

Temple Israel was vandalized back in November, when someone wrote anti-Semitic graffiti on the building.

“They had written the word ‘Nazi’ and drew two swastikas,” said Sharon Amster Brown of Temple Israel.

Reform Rabbi Steven Moskowitz said, “It’s merely a disappointment that there are sad individuals like that who have to express their own views by trying to do harm to others. I would like them to make amends. If they did that, I’d be willing to talk with them about themselves and why they’re so upset and so angry.”

Anyone with information about the crimes is asked to contact Jackie Bezart of the Long Beach Police Department at (562) 570-7250.
