Inspiration from Zion: Purim: Not to Speak is to Speak

Purim tells us about the power of one person to change the fate of our people. Esther is not described as particularly brilliant or talented. She is just a woman, with a big heart who, with courage and feminine intuition, changed the world.

Inspiration from Zion: Thousands of Generations I Dreamt of you, Jerusalem

“Thousands of generations I dreamt of you, to be granted to see the light of your face, Jerusalem, Jerusalem, Shine your face to your sons! From your ruins, I will build you!”
Rabbi Shlomo Goren blowing the Shofar near the Western Wall in June 1967.

Inspiration from Zion: “The Temple Mount is in Our Hands!”

Today Israel is a land of freedom for all – unless you are Jewish. On the Temple Mount, the holiest place in the world for the Jewish people, Jews are not allowed to pray.

Disgusted by Ben & Jerry’s Political Ice ‘Scream’? Try Forest’s Flavors of Yum!

 You don’t need Ben & Jerry’s in order to have good ice cream. If you have a mixer in your house, you can make your own ice cream, any time you want.

The Dangers of a Wikipedia World

In a Wikipedia world, in a world where my outlet to discuss the injustice of Facebook is – Facebook – is there any hope of building a solid truth based, fact-based, reality?

The Boy I Once Knew

The boy I had known years ago, the one I had liked, the one I had talked and laughed with and even kissed once or twice… He had grown up and then he had been killed. Murdered by Hezbollah.

Monsters Under the Bed…

Despite Israel's recent success in identifying and destroying Hamas attack tunnels (and the additional plus of killing terrorists in the process) the tunnel problem persists, threatening our borders.

Inspiration from Zion: Israeli Elections 101: 7 Lessons on Marketing, Slogans and the “NOT...

Watching him, I felt sorry for Gantz. He was trying to make the gestures and say the things he was told would make the best impression but his body language expressed louder than words just how uncomfortable and unsure of himself he was.

Why do Companies Like Amazon and Sears Think it’s OK to Profit from Jew...

It is up to decent people everywhere, Jews and non-Jews, to make it very clear that it is unacceptable to profit from hate against ANY group. So speak out against it on social media

Running While Jewish

An Esther neighborhood. Horgen Hill. A place where more Jewish children can live, grow and thrive in the land of our ancestors. That is how it is done.

Inspiration from Zion: The US Embassy in Jerusalem and Hamas Riots

The embassy move is important. It is an end to ambivalence, a declaration of understanding that the Jewish people have always been connected to Zion and will never leave. It is up to the rest of the nations of the earth to make the same decision and officially give up the secret, or not so secret hope, that the Jewish people will somehow disappear.

Ending Apartheid in Israel

Inspiration from Zion: Gun Control: America, Israel and the Chasm in Between

In Israel gun control is very strict and most Israelis are against easy access to guns. Israelis tend to be dumbfounded by American attitude towards guns – we see guns as necessary tools to be used to defend lives, nothing else. They are not toys for collecting or weekend entertainment and hunting is not considered a sport or cool.

Inspiration from Zion: An Open Letter to Ward Simpson, CEO of God TV

Attempting to convert Jews is an attack on our identity, an attack on our souls and can be interpreted only as a curse.

Inspiration from Zion: HaShomer HaChadash

What kind of modern child would willingly put down their phone, turn off the tv and go outside to sweat in the sun? What for? They don’t know what hard work is and why in the world would they want to do any kind of physical labor? There is no necessity that could drive them, no demand. It could never happen. Or at least that’s what the founders of the Shomer HaChadash Youth Movement were told.

Inspiration from Zion: The People Who Dance with their Book

Joy is a simple but profound emotion. Not one usually evoked by a book. But this is not “a book”, it is “The Book.” This is the book of life, of civilization, of morality and humanity.

Haifa Town Hall

With Gantz the issue is more his incoherent sentences which seem to reflect very confused thinking. But many Israelis want anything that isn’t Bibi.

Inspiration from Zion: How do you Feel about the Color Red?

Children’s thoughts about colors should not be dictated by a terrorist organization. Children should be free to play outside, free to walk from their home to visit a friend, without having to worry about where the closest bomb shelter is.

Thoughts from my Grandfather…

The conviction that “Jewish blood was worth more than Arab oil” is what brought my Saba to my grandmother and changed his life forever.

Inspiration from Zion: A Small Hanukah Tradition, a lot of Jewish Defiance

{Originally posted to the author's blog, Inspiration from Zion} Hanukah is not a holiday of the Jewish religion, it is a holiday of the Jewish...

I Laugh at their Rage

Israelis have a spirit of wild defiance that is incomprehensible to our enemies; the defiance of freedom to determine our own destiny. The idea that Israelis would cringe at the disapproval of other nations or swayed by terrorism is laughable.

Inspiration from Zion: 3 Israeli values that made the Eurovision fabulous

The Eurovision is one of the largest events in the world. Larger than the Super Bowl, the Eurovision brings together 200 million viewers every year. The Olympics and the World Cup are the only events that have more viewers.

It is the shackles of the mind that are truly preventing freedom. No matter what Jews of diaspora mentality (or the world powers) say, we will not willingly join them in their bondage but our hands are outstretched to pull them into freedom.

The Eagle has Landed: From Israel to Syria and Back Again

So, what does this story mean? That there are good guys on the other side? That peace is possible? No. It means that Israeli compassion to Syrians in need has made an impact.
