Biblical Statement

To the Reader of this Blog, amv"sh
Would you be willing to copy this out and send it back with your endorsement? Feel free to add points of your own.
We are interested in each and every Jew and each and every Rabbinic and Spiritual Leader publicly claiming our rights to Eretz Yisroel and our desire for Eretz Yisroel.
I, as a member of the Am Yisroel, the undersigned, agree with the following points:
1. The Promised Land is our Biblical Inheritance
2. The Boundaries of Eretz Yisroel are clearly delineated in the Torah
3. The Covenant is the Promise that G-d gave to our Forefathers to give us, Am Yisroel, the Land of Israel.
4. Only Am Yisroel is obligated to keep the Commandments for the benefit and blessings of mankind.
5. The Mitzvoth are only observed to their fullest in Eretz Yisroel.
6. The Land of Israel is our precious gift.
7. We recognize that our keeping the Mitvoth are the conduit for blessings for the Jewish People and to all of the Nations of the World.
Ki Ner Mitvah VeTorah Ohr. In order to bring forth light one needs a candle. In order to bring out the light of Torah to its fullest we need the Land of Israel.
You may ask how have we survived for 2000 years without the Land? Many feel that this shows that we can keep the Torah and don't need the physical land of Eretz Yisroel.
In Golus the light of Torah is dim. Hashem has revealed to us many instances of true miracles and Siyata Dishmaya in our generation with the return to Eretz Yisroel.
Can we hide our face from the Nisim Geluyim of our generation. Can we ignore how we as a Nation survived the Holocaust? Do we ignore the Spiritual revival in Eretz Yisroel and in the Diaspora. How about the open miracles of the Six Day War and most recently with rockets falling daily with minimal casualties etc. as in Gush Katif and Sderot.
Hashem says if we go with Keri (happenstance) Hashem responds with Keri.
After two thousand years we finally have sovereignty. Will we reject it? We can bring peace and blessings to the entire world by keeping the Mitzvot. Will we rise up to our purpose as a Nation to be a Mamlechet Kohanim VeGoy Kadosh or will we agree to territorial concessions in return for FAKE promises of the Nations of the World as opposed to the REAL promises of Hashem.
After 2000 years we can now actually observe SHEMITTAH in Yehudah and the Shomron which is the Biblical Heartland of Eretz Yisroel! How dare we not value this precious gift and opportunity that Hashem has once again given to us after 2000 years. Do we insult Hashem and give away this precious Land our gift, piece by piece, thereby making impossible to keep our precious Mitzvoth, to those that wish to destroy it and destroy the light of Torah, Chas VeChalilah!?
Who else will keep Shemittah if not Am Yisroel?
When we express our yearning for Eretz Yisroel and the Mitzvot dependant on the Land of Israel we will bring Moshiach!
Return this statement with your added comments and endorsement to Or you can print it out and send it to CAJL P.O.B. 340149 Brooklyn, NY 11234-0149. We wish to collect as many endorsements as we can from each and every Jew in Israel and/or in the Diaspora. Each and every Jew personally received the Torah at Sinai. The Torah was given at Sinai which is not inside the borders of Eretz Yisroel. One does not need to be an Israeli citizen or even have stepped foot onto Eretz Yisroel to affirm our Biblical Inheritance. Don't hesitate to endorse wherever you are. A Jew living in the Diaspora is equally entitled to the Land of Israel as our Dear brethren that have the zechus to actually live in the Land of Israel. One needs not go on official Aliya via the Jewish Agency. No Jew will be left behind but each precious Yid, needs to be willing at the very minimum to express their personal entitlement of the precious gift of Eretz Yisroel. By this very act of affirmation may we be zocheh to bring the Moshiach Tzidkeinu Bimheira Biyameinu. Amen.
Shabbat Shalom!

Call the Whitehouse for Pollard. Send to all. Must read letter from Leescaplan

May 9,. 2007
Shalom everyone. When I called the White House this morning and asked that President Bush please free Jonathan Pollard, I was told by the woman who answered the call that they are tracking this item and will report on it to the President. When I questioned her regarding her comment, she told me that the issue of Jonathan Pollard is on the pre-printed sheet which is given to all the comment line operators so that they can check it off when someone calls about this issue. Clearly, the calls to the White House are having an effect! So please continue to call the White House every day, and call multiple times if you can, at 202-456-1414 or 202-456-1111 and ask that President Bush please free Jonathan Pollard. Every single call means another check mark which IY"H brings Jonathan that much closer to being able to live the rest of his life with his wife Esther in Israel.
In addition, let's not forget that eight Israelis continue to be separated from their country and their families, imprisoned by terrorist organizations and regimes that don't know the meaning of treating people in a civilized manner. Please call the White House daily, and call multiple times if you can, and ask President Bush to do everything humanly possible to secure their release, emphasizing that one of the five being held by Syria is an American citizen by the name of ZACHARY BAUMEL. Please ask President Bush to pressure Syria, Iran, and the Palestinian terrorist organizations under their control to release these men at once!
Tizku lemitzvos rabbos!

Why Silence of Rabbanim. They need our Chizuk

After speaking to many within the Chareidi circle it appears to me that the Gedoilim truly believe that the whole of Eretz Yisroel is our Biblical Inheritance. So then why aren't they speaking up?  It is my understanding that if they felt that the Nation as a Whole wanted them to speak up, they would.  It is imperative that each and every one of us speak to our local Rabbanim or any Rav or person of Jewish Leadership and ask them to encourage anyone they know of Jewish Leadership and ask them to make a public statement as to our Biblical Inheritance. 
 Why then do our Rabbanim need us to encourage them and telling them how to lead? That is a loaded question.
Taking a real leadership role is scary.  When Moshe Rabbeinu told Pharoh to free the Jewish Nation conditions became worse for the Jews.  Then Moshe went back to G-d and complained why things became worse.  If the Rabbinic and Leaders of Am Yisroel do make a public Statement I would expect things to possibly become worse temporarily for Am Yisroel.  If we as a nation are not on the level to accept the leaders actions and we would blame any backlash on their leadership they would be unable to be effective.   It is for good reason I believe the Gedoilim are scared to speak out. However, we have no choice if we believe this is G-d's will and our survival and our purpose of being, is intertwined with Eretz Yisroel and keeping the Commandments in Eretz Yisroel.
Please read a letter written to Hadas the secretary to Rav Eliashiv shlita who is now bli ayin hara 96 years old.
Chag Kasher VeSameach!
Sincerely, Robin

HELEN FREEDMAN, 30 W. 63rd Street, New York, NY 10023;; 917-886-0729; March 24, 2007



Helen Freedman


        Will there be any official government celebrations planned in Israel to recognize the 40th Anniversary of the re-unification of Jerusalem, the return to Hebron, and the restoration of Judea, Samaria, Gaza and the Golan to the Jews of Israel – and the world? If so, we haven't heard of any. The reason for the silence from Israel is that the Olmert government is planning the reversal of the amazing 1967 victory by the Israeli army over the attacking Egyptians, Lebanese, Syrians, Iraqis, Saudis, and Jordanians, betraying all those who dreamt for centuries of the return to Zion. It is also, of course, a betrayal of the many thousands who gave their lives in order to create a whole Israel.

        Americans – ask your mainstream Jewish organizations, the UJA, UJC, JNF, what celebrations are planned for the 40th Anniversary in America. You'll probably elicit a stony silence, or response about "disputed territories" from those who endorse the give-away plan and refuse to recognize the existence of a whole Israel.

         The give-away program was actually begun with the treacherous Oslo Accords of 1993, but swung into full force in August, 2005 when Gaza was emptied of its Jews by order of then PM Ariel Sharon. Wishing to distract the public from his pending indictment for a variety of criminal activities, Sharon pushed forward the expulsion of 10,000 Jews from the 21 communities of Gush Katif and Sanur and Homesh in Samaria. The area, as predicted by the opponents of expulsion, has now become a Hamas terrorist stronghold, threatening the Negev communities.

        Now we hear that Israel must talk to Syria. There are "diplomats" who insist that Israel's refusal to do so is stubborn intransigence. What could these talks possibly mean? Only the giveaway of the Golan Heights, Israel's absolutely necessary security position against the Iranian and Syrian backed Hezbollah. Anyone who has been to the Golan, and seen Damascus from the Israeli heights, can appreciate how dangerous it would be for Israel to give away this natural protection. And that goes without mentioning the vineyards, farms, homes, schools, cities and lives of the Jews of the Golan. And yet, the "diplomats" urge talk and "painful concessions."

        The Olmert government has been building a wall through Judea and Samaria that is cutting off Jewish communities from other Jews, placing them in what would be the "Palestinian" state, if that disaster should come to pass. The "Saudi initiative", from our "good friends" the Saudi Arabians, who were well represented in the World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks, and who sponsor Wahabiism, the most virulent of the Islamic jihadist religions, requires Israel to return to its "Auschwitz" 1967 borders and requires the right of return for Arabs who fled in 1948. Although the number of Arabs was about 500,000 at the time, their descendants now claim to number in the millions, thanks to the careful protection of UNWRA, and it is these millions who are demanding the right to flood Israel with their return. All of this seems quite reasonable to Ehud Olmert, who is ready to empty out many of the 250,000 Jews of Judea and Samaria, in order to replace them with "Palestinian"/Hamas Arabs who are dedicated to Israel's destruction.

        And the jewel in the crown is Jerusalem - Yerushalayim – the holy city over which the Jews have cried for centuries. Jews continue to mourn the destruction of the First and Second Temples, and look forward to the day when the Third Temple will be rebuilt on the Temple Mount.  Unfortunately, the Israeli government doesn't reflect these yearnings.  

        In 1967, when Matti Gur ascended the Temple Mount with the victorious Israeli army, and planted the Israeli flag there, proclaiming "The Temple Mount is in our hands," he was ordered to take down the flag. Moshe Dayan gave the keys to the Temple Mount to the Arab Waqf, and since then, Israelis have been fighting to assert their rights to this holiest of places.

        And now, we hear that Olmert is considering re-dividing Jerusalem. The "Saudi" plan calls for the surrender of half of Jerusalem to the Arabs. Of course we know that surrendering part is in effect surrendering all. That is what the Arabs continue to tell us. They want to drive the Jews into the sea. They refuse to recognize Israel's right to exist, refuse to stop their terrorist activities, and expect to succeed in their goal to Islamize the world. Israel and Jerusalem are only the first step. Tomorrow, the world.

        So that is why we do not hear talk of celebrations, parades and special events to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the restoration of the state of Israel to its immediate post-1967 state of wholeness. When the government of Israel is prepared to give away everything that was achieved in the miraculous 1967 victory, how can they celebrate the gains of that six-day war? What is clear is that what the Arabs lost militarily, they understand they can gain diplomatically. They merely have to use the language of "peace" and the western world becomes hostage to them.

        But there are those who will not accept the delusions, deceptions and betrayals of the "diplomats" and "leaders" who are only concerned with their personal power positions and are willing to sacrifice the welfare of the country for their own good. There are many remarkably brave and heroic Israelis who will fight against the perfidious ones. We Americans, who understand the nature of the fight, must join with them.

Yom Chevron- Chance to make a Statement

I think it would be wonderful if there is a campaign to get as many Rabbanim (Chareidim and Datiyim Zionim etc in a show of unity) to visit Maaras Hamechpela in Chevron on Wednesday night Yom Chevron. (For starters, Rav Mordechai Eliyahu, Sadiger Rebbe, the Bostoner Rebbe etc.and of course a showing by Rav Shteinman and other prominent Rabbanim would be fabulous)-
Here in NY we (Shmuel Koenig and myself, are persistently calling the various local Rabbanim in Flatbush( Rabbi Reisman of Agudas Yisroel of Madison, and Rabbi Pinchus Breuer, Rav of Agudas Yisroel of Ave L and Rav Hillel David and others asking them to take a stand and a personal claim to Eretz Yisroel and begging them to speak out against Bush's Roadmap and also to personally convince Rabbanim that have perhaps higher recognized stature than themselves (Rabbanim such as Shmuel Kamenetsky advisor to Chofetz Chaim Heritage Foundation, and the Noveminsker Rebbe aka Rav Perlow, Rav Shmuel Berenbaum, Rav Matisyahu Salomon (Leaders of Agudath Yisroel of America )etc. to take a similar public stand) To be perfectly honest we are hitting stone. But as Rabbi Akiva noted, every drop of water collectively makes a dent in the stone. So we will persevere, with these phone calls urging others to call their Rabbanim as well hoping that hopefully sooner not later, our message will penetrate. Hadas also said that if a Mishlachat of these aforementioned Rabbanim (leaders from Agudath Yisroel of America) came from the States with their entourage it would also make a strong impression on Rav Eliashiv and Rav Shteinman to perhaps take such a public position. It seems to me that making a public statement takes the risk of a strong backlash from world opinion. The Torah Leaders would need much Chizuk from Hamonei Am that this position is accepted by Hamonei Am as well and it is not simply their personal imposition of their own agenda.
