The antidote to opposition to Jews is
Jewish Unity based on L O V E.

"For Jerusalem's Sake!"
by Eva

How can I rest serenely
In a strange and foreign land,
Knowing Eretz Yisrael
Is in dire need of a helping hand?
How can I remain silent
When love's flame within me burns?
How can I turn my eyes away
From the land my spirit yearns?
Am I my brother's keeper?
Or do I turn away a deafened ear
To the sound of distant drums,
As storm clouds are drawing near?
Oh what bonds in unity,
Love can never break
Where heart and soul unite as one
For Jerusalem's sake! Reply

Bringing More Light Let us please remember that the Sabbath of the Convention was the fourth anniversary of a massacre in a synagogue in Har Nof, Israel. The widows asked that in their husbands' memories Jewish girls and women ask Jewish girls and women to light Shabbos candles to bring more light. Also, on another Rosh Chodesh Kislev, after the Mumbai massacre, a woman who had done so much to reach out to Jews in India was home visiting in Israel and was murdered by a terrorist. We can pray for more success for all the shluchim, recovered formerly troubled teens, whoever is reading this, for insisting on Jewish and all human life, bringing more light till the lights of Moshiach.

Well, since 770 is within the area of Brooklyn, then that's just the beginning! We have to continue from there to go further and further in spreading light! Until we occupy the world with goodness and bring Moshiach now! Reply
