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.
The IDF Spokesperson's Unit put out an announcement around 7 this morning saying Israeli forces had overnight struck a squad of terrorists who were in the process of preparing to fire rockets into Israel from the Northern Gaza Strip. Ynet is reporting that Palestinian Arab sources in Gaza say two large explosions were heard in the Strip after an Israeli navy boat fired at a Hamas training facility in the northern part of Gaza City. It quotes an official at Gaza Hospital who reports one dead and five wounded, one critically. For its part, the Israeli military, according to Ynet, says the intercept was achieved by IDF jets.
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!"
