Happy Independence Day, to ALL of our readers ✡ "But They Had No Comforter" - ISRAEL365

But I returned and considered all the oppressions that are done under the sun; and behold the tears of such as were oppressed, and they had no comforter; and on the side of their oppressors there was power, but they had no comforter.

וְשַׁבְתִּי אֲנִי וָאֶרְאֶה אֶת כָּל הָעֲשֻׁקִים אֲשֶׁר נַעֲשִׂים תַּחַת הַשָּׁמֶשׁ וְהִנֵּה דִּמְעַת הָעֲשֻׁקִים וְאֵין לָהֶם מְנַחֵם וּמִיַּד עֹשְׁקֵיהֶם כֹּחַ וְאֵין לָהֶם מְנַחֵם

קוהלת ד:א

Today's Israel Inspiration

When the verse mentions “all the oppressions that are done,” it refers to the suffering of the Jewish people in exile.  Koheleth observes, however, that not only do the Jewish people suffer in exile but that they lack the leadership to comfort them.  Rabbi Obadiah Sforno notes that the phrase “a comforter” is repeated twice in this verse, hinting that they were lacking the leadership to teach them the two keys for redemption.  Firstly, the Jewish people need a leader who will guide them to repentance, for through sincere repentance comes redemption.  Second, they need a leader who will show them how to pray effectively so that their prayers will be answered, and they will be returned to the Land of Israel. Many Jews have made a home in the United States during their exile from Israel. We are so thankful for the warm hospitality that America has provided for the Jews over the decades. We would like to wish all those celebrating a very happy Independence Day!

Rabbi Tuly's Newsmax Op-ed in Honor of July 4th

We are all used to seeing despicable images of burning American flags throughout the capitals of the Mideast. However, there is one country in the region whose citizens proudly wave the stars and stripes. That country is Israel.
 

What does 'Chai' mean?

In Hebrew, each letter has a numerical value. The number 10 is the letter Yud. The number 8 is the letter Chet. Chet-Yud spells the word Chai, which means “Living” or “Life”. Therefore, in Judaism the number 18 correlates to life.  Many Jews have the custom to donate money in multiples of “Chai”, as a good omen for life. It is also customary to wear jewelry depicting the word 'Chai' such as the beautiful Chai necklace pictured above. In celebrating life, we would like to offer all of you an 18% or 'chai' discount of your purchase from our store!

Shalom Rabbi Tuly, My praise has been day in and day out for  Jerusalem, I do remember the six day war and knew in my soul that the LORD G-D would be the shield and buckler, crying with tears of mercy to watch and keep those who so gallantly answered the call of arise, never did my faith in the weakest moment fail, thought of Moses,Elijah and others  who depended on his saving hand, The victory was a miracle, Exodus came before me, He was fighting for his chosen , and still, Psalm 125. Jerusalem is the apple of His eye.
--Patricia.
Shalom,
Rabbi Tuly Weisz
