For those who are home, and for those who are on the way. For those who support the historic and just return of the land of Israel to its people, forever loyal to their inheritance, and its restoration.

Nathan Lopes Cardozo To President Barack Obama
Israel was not built on the ashes of Auschwitz. It is founded on the Bible, a divine text rooted in the Jewish experience of nearly 4000 years. A “Heilsgeschichte”, a Redemptive History for all of mankind.
Israel was not created because of the Holocaust, but rather despite the Holocaust.
I visited Hevron in November 2000 after the outbreak of the Rosh Hashanah War to see what could be done to assist in the face of the growing daily attacks on the community. After returning to work for the community in the summer of 2001, a bond and a love was forged that grows to this day. My wife Melody and I merited to be married at Ma'arat HaMachpela and now host visitors from throughout the world every Shabbat as well as during the week. Our goal, "Time to come Home!"
