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.
It is the combination of two words - 'Yihyeh B'seder' ["it will be OK"].
This combination of words, which many voice in the day to day life of the State of Israel, is unbearable.
Behind these two words is generally hidden everything which is not OK.
The arrogance and sense of self confidence, strength and power which has no place.
The 'Yihyeh B'seder' has accompanied us already for a long time. For many years. And it is the hallmark of an atmosphere that borders on irresponsibility in many areas of our lives.
The 'Yihyeh B'seder', that same friendly slap on the shoulder, that wink, that 'count on me', is the hallmark of the lack of order; a lack of discipline and an absence of professionalism; the presence of negligence; an atmosphere of covering up; which to my great sorrow is the legacy of many public bodies in Israel - not just the IDF.
It is devouring us.
And we have already learned the hard and painful way that 'Yihyeh B'seder' means that very much is not OK."
Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin warning remarks to the IDF Staff and Command School - August 1992
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!"
