Rod Bryant and Jerry Gordon bring back Rabbi Jonathan Hausman ,co-founder of “Save the Persecuted Christians” to discuss the relevance of the rabbinic teaching “pray as if all depends upon Ha Shem, but act as all depends upon you. That prayer must lead to action in partnership with Ha Shem”. He cites his grandfather’s warning based on his amazing journey from oppression in Czarist Ukraine to the Golden Medeiner of America as a precept his activism as a teen in the Student Struggle for Soviet Jewry. That started in a basement in a shul in Cleveland with seven people that led eight years later to US legislation that forced Soviet Russia to enable the massive aliyah to Israel and the West. Rabbi Hausman conveyed this message in a recent address to a gathering of concerned Christians and evangelicals in Denver. He also explained why the Churches, clergy and the media have not condemned and acted to support the estimated 600 million Christians world-wide facing oppression and life-threatening extinction, especially in the Middle East and totalitarian countries.
