Connection with G-d is through Torah, our people and the Land of Israel.
Keep our Holy and most beautiful land, our gift from G-d, safe.

As long as deep in the heart,
The soul of a Jew Yearns,
And towards the East
An eye looks to Zion.
Our hope is not yet lost,
The hope of two thousand years,
To be a free people in our land,
The land of Zion and Jerusalem.
56 Islamic States, all oppressive and intolerant...
One Tiny Jewish Democratic State Of Israel
AM ISRAEL CHAI.
A special note to my friend in Malaysia, Shimon, a young man with a big soul and spark that connects with his people through study, prayer and the hope to live in our holy land.
Thank you so very much for the photos, a very special gift for this mother's day to fill our hearts with joy.
An officer and a Muslim Zionist (interview worth reading.)
"From the age of zero I was told that Israel stole Palestine from us, but when I was 14 I woke up.
I discovered that Jews are not bad," says Ala Wahib, an operations officer at a key IDF training base, and the highest-ranked Muslim officers in the Israeli army.
"I am the operations officer at the IDF ground forces training base at Tze'elim," Ala Wahib says at the start of our conversation, his eyes twinkling with excitement.
"I am like the mother and father of that place," he adds.
"The only thing is that I don't really have anyone to share it with, so I make sure to pat myself on the back every now and again, and say 'dude, you're awesome.
Look how far you've come.'"
The truth is that he deserves these accolades.
It is not every day that a Muslim Arab, hailing from a village whose residents largely do not recognize Israel's right to exist, comes to serve in the Israel Defense Forces.
And he doesn't only serve: Major Wahib, 32, is currently the highest ranking Muslim officer in the IDF.
He is enormously patriotic, a true Zionist.
Precisely the kind of person we like to see lighting the torches during the national Independence Day ceremony every year.
