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.
In the third such point-blank drive-by shooting in a single month, a woman in the ninth month of her pregnancy (has had a c-section and the baby boy is fine) was wounded tonight by gun fire around 8.30pm. She was riding in a car driven by her husband (who was also shot) and the shooters were Palestinian Arab terrorists in another car. While none of the myriad so-called factions has taken credit yet, it's bound to be only a matter of time before one or another of them does. Hamas, the terrorist organization that rules Gaza with an iron fist, claimed credit for each of the two earlier attacks on Israeli civilians in their vehicles.
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!"
