A Passover Note!

To all the people that read Supporting Our Israel:

Over the last month since I put Supporting Our Israel up, I have seen my number grow and I feel blessed to have all of you who do read, reading my rants and ideas. So thank you so much for your support of me.

In most Jewish homes throughout the world, Jews are finishing cleaning and cooking for Pesach, or Passover. We are throwing out the leavened products and about to embark on a gastronomical journey of Matzah and other foods. One of the many reasons given why we eat Matzah is because G-d took the Jews out of Egypt and we didn't have enough time to let the dough rise. Whether or not this is true is moot. We eat this Matzah in remembrance of the beginning of the forging of our nation. We came from the Hell of Egypt a people. We traveled through the desert for 40 years. We stood at Mount Sinai and received the most widely accepted religious book in the world. (Both Christians and Muslims accept the authority of the Torah, I wish that it would be remembered sometimes.) We entered Israel as a nation. Bound by rules and by a governing body. We entered our Land as a family returning home.

It is my sincere blessing to all of my readers that we should all live to see Israel as the recognized homeland of the Jews. As it is said in the Haggadah "B'Shana HaBa B'Yerushalayim-Next Year in Jerusalem." I hope to see everyone next year, in Israel, in Jerusalem in a peaceful neighborhood with peaceful neighbors and everyone is prosperous. So prosperous we don't have to worry about working or supporting Israel anymore because it just comes naturally.

I will be on a bit of a vacation until after the first days of Yom Tov end. I hope you all enjoy your Sedarim, wherever they may be. Please keep a seat for Gilad Shalit and pray for his speedy return home and also keep in mind the citizens of the State of Israel that they should have a Pesach that is free of fear and terror. We should all lean like kings at our tables this Pesach without having to worry about our lives, why should Israeli's be any different.

Chag Kasher v'Sameach!
