My Jewish friends who live in #Israel– you have no idea… You have no idea how reassuring it is to walk on the streets of Haifa and run into an #IDFsoldier. You have no idea how much pride there is to look outside your window in Tel Aviv and find Israeli flags dancing with the wind. You have no idea what it’s like to walk to almost any doorway or gate in any city and find the words of SHEMA housed within a Mezuzah. You have no idea how comfortable it is to walk into any restaurant in Jerusalem and find kosher food. You have no idea how breathtaking are your people, how rich and diverse your culture, how advanced your medicine and technology, how fun your music and dances, and how mesmerizing your youth. You have no idea because as a non-Israeli Jew, my heart is overwhelmed with the beauty of what you have built in such a short time, under so many wars and terror attacks. I’m filled with gratitude for all of you who serve both God and the Israeli Defense Forces so that we who live outside The Land can walk securely and proudly among nations, because we have you. We owe you everything. You have no idea. Todah.
