A CALL TO SPIRITUAL ACTION

Watch Rabbi Mimran's reflections and insights on the Simchat Torah Massacre and what it means for us.

A brief from the Rabbi

My dear friends, at this difficult and perilous time we should take upon ourselves a spiritual step in merit of our brothers and sisters in Israel. Whether it is wrapping Tefilin, lighting Shabbat candles, installing Mezzuzot, attending Minyan, or through other mitzvot this is our call to arms!

One powerful way to do this is to partner with a soldier in the Israeli Defense Forces and do mitzvot in their honor and in their merit. Visit www.sharejustonething.com to get matched with a soldier!


Please pray for an end to our nation's suffering, that the injured are healed, the captives are released, that our soldiers are successful, and for the speedy arrival of Mashiach.

ADVOCACY

unnamed.png

In addition to prayer and tzedakah, we can help ensure that America is there to support Israel in its time of extreme need. We have seen strong support from the U.S. government, both in statements and in action. The majority of Senate and House Representatives, and other political officials have also made strong statements of support for the Israeli people and the IDF’s actions against Hamas.
Excerpts from supportive comments for Israel made by many elected officials can be found HERE

Help ensure their continued support at this crucial time by sending a message of sincere appreciation (Hakarat Hatov) to leaders who have made supportive statements.

Dear Representative [insert His/Her Last name],

 

As a constituent and Jewish American with many friends and family in Israel, I want to thank you sincerely for your statement of support for our ally Israel in its time of need.

 

As you know, on October 7th, as Jews in Israel were celebrating the holiday of Simchat Torah—50 years since the devastating Yom Kippur War—the Iran-backed terror group Hamas launched an unprecedented attack on Israel, killing over 1,400 civilians and soldiers, injuring thousands, and taking over 200 hostages into Gaza, including American citizens.

 

Your steadfast support fills us with optimism and reassures us that America will remain Israel's strongest advocate and ally.

 

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your words.

 

Sincerely,

[Your Name]
