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.
This cartoon from 1997 deals with a secret Israeli truth. That "secret truth" is that no matter how secular or non-religious an Israeli is, he or she cannot really shake the belief that our success and survival comes in spite of our bungling leaders.
Today, 10 (12) years after 1997, Israel has an even less competent government, we face even greater threats, and somehow the "golden oldie" seems even more to the point.
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!"
