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.
Almost two years ago, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu described Israel’s geographic needs outside of Jerusalem exclusively on a military basis:
“Regarding the remaining important issues that will be discussed as part of a final peace settlement, my positions are known: Israel needs defensible borders, and Jerusalem, the capital of Israel, must remain undivided with continued religious freedom for all faiths.” Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu at the Begin-Sadat Center at Bar-Ilan University 14 June 2009
Today Mr. Netanyahu restored national considerations not related to security to Israel’s geographic needs:
“Under any realistic peace agreement, these areas [neighborhoods and suburbs of Jerusalem and Greater Tel Aviv]., as well as other places of critical strategic and national importance, will be incorporated into the final borders of Israel.” Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to a Joint Meeting of the U.S. Congress 25 May 2011
A prime example of a place of “national importance” is the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron.

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!"
