Shiloh's 70th Yom Ha'Atzmaut Celebration

We couldn't be two places at once, so I'm so glad that the film of Shiloh's 70th Yom Ha'Atzmaut, 5778, 2018, celebrations is here for all of us to enjoy. This very well-edited film gives all of the highlights of the ceremony in less than five minutes. You don't have to know the participants to enjoy and celebrate along with the modern and growing town of Shiloh.

Sing along...

This year we attended the prayers and ceremony in Ofra with our daughter and her family, since one of our grandchildren performed in it.

On 2005/7/20, The Jewish Press printed an article titled:
Some Questions for Israel by Chananya Weissman
(founder of End the Madness, an organization for Jewish singles).

In this article, Chananya Weissman asked:
“Why does Israel celebrate Independence Day every year?
In what way is Israel independent?”

Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan taught that: In the pre-Messianic Era,
the Jews in the land of Israel would have “a measure of
political independence” – which seems to mean less-than-complete
political independence.

SOURCE: The Handbook of Jewish Thought
by Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan, volume 2 of 2,
chapter 24, paragraph 18, page 365.

Since Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan (of blessed memory) taught that
in the era before the mashiach, the Jews in the
Land of Israel would only have partial independence,
there is no point in complaining about Israel sometimes
bowing before other nations, because that is exactly
what is supposed to happen in the era before mashiach.

Was Ezra an Orthodox Jew?


Was Nehemiah an Orthodox Jew?
