This day is referred to as "Yom Hanakba" by the Arabs or the day of tragedy when the State of Israel was born 64 years ago. The enemies of Israel forget that the "Partition Plan" was rejected outright by the Moslems and the "Two State Solution" was rejected as the armies of all of the Arab nations around the Land of Israel, and inside continued to try to finish off what Hitler and the Nazis began. Sadly even inside of Israel and even members of the Israeli Knesset today continue to selectively refer to this as a day of tragedy and will not accept the truth that Israel had accepted the partition and the Arabs did not.

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!"
