Life in America is not going to be the same for American Jews in the months to come, too many celebrities are thriving with their comments while the response to them is really meaningless in the eyes of the masses. It’s time to get back to basics and remember where home is. In my book Not Alone Soldier, I talk about Crying Out For Aliyah: Journal Entry as a Lone Soldier:
Throughout the entire process of actually making my way to Israel I kept thinking. We are alone; no one is there to have our back. Stop lying, stop justifying. We have one home. We are a nation and we have a responsibility to one another. With a heart pounding, these are my feelings about why Jewish people outside of Israel should be making Aliyah. In the last sixty years the Jewish people have had a lot to give thanks for with the establishment of the State of Israel. For the first time in two thousand years, Jews now have access to their ancestral roots. But the problem is that manyJews don’t feel the urge to come. They don’t think about how Holocaust victims dreamed of coming, nor do they think of what kind of mitzvah it is to come to Israel and start a life here. Our people have a tradition lasting over three thousand that deserves giving respect. We received a tradition from our ancestors who got received the Torah’s guidelines at Mount Sinai and passed it on in an unbroken chain. Everyone is caught up with their careers and convenience. The wake-up calls are getting stronger and stronger. Anti-Semitism is growing all over the world. Are you going to be a victim? Or part of the solution? Either direction will not be comfortable, but the chance to choose between right and wrong is now, before it’s too late. The Jewish people need you and your family here in our cherished country. Together may we meet peacefully in our land.
