Thanks to the New Embassy

Thanks to the New Embassy

 

     Thanks to the dedication of the new United States Embassy in Jerusalem a number of American dignitaries came to the Kotel. Among them were a very popular radio talk show host, Mark Levin, and Paul Teller one of President Trump's aids.

     Beside both coming to Jerusalem for the same reason, and both being Jewish, they both had something else in common. It was the first time either one of them had ever put on tefillin.

     Thank G-d for the opportunity to help such influential Jews learn about our ancient mitzvahs.

  1. Why do many nations attempt to take the Land of Israel,
    especially Jerusalem, away from the Jews?

    =====================================
    The answers are found in the Jewish Bible,
    known as the Tanach in Hebrew and
    the “O.T.” (Only Testament) in English:

    =====================================
    [1] In the Biblical Book of Joshua
    (chapter 23, verses 12 to 13), G*D Himself
    warns that intermarriage with non-Jews will
    cause the Jews to fail in their attempt
    to conquer the Land of Israel.

    Even worse, G_d also warns that intermarriage
    with non-Jews will cause the Jews to be
    pushed-out-of the Land of Israel.

    =====================================
    [2] In the Biblical Book of Jeremiah
    (end of chapter 17), the prophet warns that
    Jewish sovereignty over Jerusalem depends
    on Jews observing Shabbat, the Jewish
    Sabbath. If the Jews honor Shabbat,
    then Jerusalem will be ruled by the Jews forever.

    If the Jews DO NOT honor Shabbat,
    then the opposite happens [may G*D have mercy].

    =====================================
    [3] The Biblical Book of Tehillim
    [called “Psalms” in English] (chapter 105,
    last 2 verses of that chapter) teaches that G*D gave
    the Land of Israel to Jews because He wants
    Jews to carefully obey His commandments [chukav].

    Given what this verse teaches, what will
    happen to Jewish control of the Land of Israel,
    if Jews fail to obey His commandments?

    =====================================
