Radioactive Ripples

Every little thing we do has some sort of "ripple effect."  That's a reason Jewish Law makes us guard our tongues, שמרית לשון shmirat lashon.  Pandora's Box can't be closed back up.

The ongoing reports and updates of last Friday's earthquake in Japan, the tsunami and now the damage to the nuclear power stations, the resulting radioactive leaks and then the human and economic costs make it clear that this tragedy will be felt for a very long time.  There is no longer a rich benevolent super-power to fund the rebuilding of Japan.

The Fogel-Ben Yishai clan are sitting shiva, observing the seven day mourning period.  You can say that the murder of five family members by Arab terrorists is like the earthquake.  The funeral is like the tsunami.  The shiva is a series of unpredictable aftershocks.  And then, like the radiation which will affect Japan and all who are touched by it for generations, so will this barbaric massacre.  You can't totally cleanse yourself of radiation, and Rav Udi, Ruthie, Elad, Yoav and Hadas Fogel can never be brought back to life.

Creed Of Noah said...

In these critical times, when nations are challenging one another and violence is increasing in an unbelievable manner, the Jews have the power to bring about peace in the entire world.
In order that the entire world should be orderly, it is essential that each and every one of the "seventy nations" should be influenced so that they will work on settling the world through spreading the Seven Mitzvos & influencing the nations to keep their mitzvos, in order to assist our task of making the world into a dwelling place for G-d, and help bring about the arrival of Moshiach. Every individual must do everything possible to hasten his coming. In order to bring awareness of these Seven Mitzvos to the world I have recently created a blog for this sole purpose


Please add this to your blogroll (& encourage your fellow bloggers to add my blog or add it to their social networking sites) to help spread the awareness of the existence of these Noahide Commandments.
