We are not the slaves in Egypt we once were. We are not the exiled people of a thousand years ago. We are here, back in our ancient homeland, thriving contributors to the world.
Thousands celebrate Jerusalem Day.

Once again, Israel finds itself reluctantly in a defensive battle against an enemy bent on our destruction. And once again, as predictably as the passage of time, we stand condemned by the nations of the world for defending our most basic rights, and Jews throughout the globe are haunted by riots and antisemitic attacks.To overcome these great and complex obstacles, we need mainly two things – clarity and courage - the clarity to know what is right, and the courage to act on it.
