RACHEL'S CHILDREN RECLAMATION FOUNDATION 60 West End Avenue, Brooklyn NY 11235 718-648-2610, <email@example.com> .054-224-2649 and EMUNAH OF JERUSALEM cordially invite you to join us for our Tenth Year Anniversary of the Dedication of the RCRF Sefer Torah at Kever Rachel Rosh Chodesh Tammuz Thursday, July 3, 2008, Rachel's Tomb and Beit Bnei Rachel.
As Israel recognizes 60 years as a modern state, RCRF recognizes over 3600
years that the Nation of Israel was completed by Rachel Imeinu when she
gave birth to Benyamin on the way completing the twelve tribes.
We will celebrate the Anniversary by reading the Torah in Kever Rachel,
hearing our great leaders and remembering our past and so very worthy
participants. A buffet brunch will conclude this remembrance day.
Sadly we will recognize those who particpated in our historical event and
are not longer with us on this tenth year anniversary .
HaRav Avraham Shapira, A'H hosted the seuda.
Rabbanite Tsifia Goren , A"H was recognized for the reclamation of Rachel's Tomb, the keys given to her husband HaRav Shlomo Goren, A"H as he passed on the way from the liberation of the
Kotel on the way to Hebron.
We will also recognize Adir Zik, A"H our dear video producer.
The fact that Itzik and Danny are in jail despite them having not done anything wrong, and their Arab assailants are walking around free, is the best proof that in
We will hold placards and hand out leaflets explaining the Halamish case and demanding their release.
The authorities want us to keep quiet and bury the Halamish case… A case of legal persecution of loyal Jews by the authorities and a case of capitulation to the Arab enemy-
Women in Green will not keep quiet. At the contrary! Be there and make your voice heard!
We will meet at in front of the main entrance to Binyanei Hauma.

Summary from an essay entitled
PEACE IS POSSIBLE BETWEEN ISHMAEL AND
ACCORDING TO THE TANAKH AND THE KORAN
By Dr. Asher Eder
The ruling wing of Islam has severed its original ties with the "Book" (the Tanakh, Hebrew Bible) and the "People of the Book",
In Islamic view, a Jihad can end only with a complete victory - or else with an unreserved admittance that waging it was wrong from the start.
The Koran itself suggests such a change of attitude which can help paving the way to mutual understanding, trustworthy peace, and co-operation:
1. It stresses the continued validity of the "Book" – Jonah 38; Table 52; Cow 172; Believers 56;
Bee 45-47; and others;
2. it recognizes the teachings of the Prophets, even of the rabbis - Table 48,
(notwithstanding Repentance 30-35);
3. it recognizes the peculiarity of
Hobbling 15; Cow 44, 116; Smoke 30;
4. the Holy Land prescribed for
6. it was Allah who settled the Children of Israel there – Jonah 93;
8. David's kingdom (
and judge on earth – Zad 19, 25, 28; Cow 252 [cf. Is. 28:16];
9. the Psalms and the Prophets speak of
Koran – Bani
11. on the contrary, the words of the Prophets shall surely be established – Greeks 5; Hobbling 31;
12. Abraham is called a true believer, i.e. Moslem - Imram 60; Pilgrimage 77; Cattle 162; and so are
the Prophets – Table 48, notwithstanding their keeping Shabbat and their direction of prayer
13. Abraham established
b) the Kaaba in
14. Quiblah (direction of prayer) for Muslims to
(Cow 140,143) - yet see also Cow 171, and 1.Kings 8:41-53!
15. Koran admits different religious rites, and urges us to emulate in good works - Cow 143;
Table 53; Pilgrimage 66;
16. the God of
17. Allah wants to be honored by forgiveness and love - Table 15-17; Woman Tested 7; Counsel 14.
18. Rassul Mohammed, as the "Seal of the Prophets" (Confed.40), confirms them!
It is the words of the Prophets which provide the base for true peace
(Democracy being merely a form of a people's government but not its soul,
should be guided by them)
