Our Leaders

Our leaders sometimes make us proud and sometimes do not, and recently there was an uproar because the Prime Minister of Israel was talking about how Hitler had a partner in the final solution.  I had no idea about this part of history, and I found a few links that may shed some light on what actually happened.  I think the more we know the better, and it is not a surprise that people really thought Germany would win WWII, but they didn’t.  Also when Israel got attacked right after it was decided by the Balfour Declaration, and the United Nations, and they won, everyone attacked from all sides, they thought they would win, but they didn’t.

There were also Muslims that helped Jews during the Holocaust,

No matter what our leaders say, lets question it, delve into it, make up our own minds, communicate, and dig deep in to what is, so we can move forward.

What do Jewish people do in challenging times? Connect to their roots, to their faith, and to each other.  A South African Jew started something big, he challenged everyone to drop everything and spend on Shabbat together, especially to people that are not usually able to do so.  It has become so grand, all over the countries of the world, check it out below.  When we connect, beautiful things happen, we are one big family, and we support our brothers and sister in Israel and all over the world.

Shabbat Shalom,

Coach Yulia
