Friends of Israel Newsletter – August Edition

As the summer months are coming to an end and we enter the beginning of the school year for many and the Jewish holiday season for others, with the Jewish New Year occurring in a few short weeks, many of us begin a time of reflection. A time to take stock of all that has occurred in the previous year. To see the strides that have been made, the missteps that may have occurred and the promise a new year may offer.

Friends of Israel Newsletter – July Edition

Welcome to our July 2023 edition of the Friends of Israel newsletter.

A few days ago, the Knesset, Israel’s parliament passed the first law pertaining to judicial reform in Israel. Across the political spectrum, there is a consensus that this is a substantive legislative reform. In an unquestionable sign of the strength of Israel’s democracy, for over 6 months, the people of Israel, nearly 500,000 people, 10% of the population, have been taking to the streets, each and every week, for 28 consecutive weeks, voicing their concerns and interests.

Friends of Israel Newsletter – June Edition

Welcome to our June 2023 edition of the Friends of Israel monthly newsletter.

Recently, Israel was again rocked by a terrorist attack which resulted in the loss of innocent life. Too often, this is the story we hear broadcasted across the airwaves rather than the positive stories that come out of Israel, such as the medical advancements, the scientific breakthroughs, the award-winning authors, and artists and so much more.

Friends of Israel Newsletter – May Edition

Welcome to our May 2023 edition of the Friends of Israel monthly newsletter.

Over the last month, we watched as Israel again found itself under attack. Sirens blared as rockets rained over the skies in Israel and men, women and children ran for shelter. Thankfully, a cease fire was reached, and relative calm has ensued. We hope that calm will continue, and we will come to a time when the days of attacks on Israel will be a thing only spoken about in the past…

Friends of Israel Newsletter – April Edition

This past week – Israel celebrating its 75th birthday, its Independence Day – is one of those time periods in the year that make Israel so unique. But unique for Israel is not only the sound of people in the streets, parties, music, fly-bys and float-bys, the smell of bar-b-ques and the various events. It is not just the sound of celebration but what we experience the day before. This celebration is preceded by the sounds of silence, the sound of a nation remembering and mourning those who sacrificed their lives to enable their families and friends to follow with the celebration of life. The sounding of air raid sirens, a symbol of memory during Yom Hazikaron, where a whole nation stops what it may be doing, wherever it may be doing it, so everyone can stand in silence, together, to remember. Only after that moment of memory can a nation transition to Yom Ha’Atzmaut, from memorial to celebration.
