Last month I went to a site of historical, cultural and religious significance literally in my own back yard, but which I’d not made time to get to.  I have wanted to go to the Friends of Zion Museum in Jerusalem since it opened, and finally made the time.  The museum is significant in many ways; one of the things …

Even though I am old enough to have four kids who have graduated from high school, I’m not so old as to have forgotten my own high school graduation.  I was thinking about that milestone on the occasion of my son’s graduation this month.  Issues relating to high school graduation from my youth, and most of my life in the …

The Hamas leadership in Gaza has threatened Israel with “an explosion” if it does not supply electricity to Gaza at the expense of Israeli taxpayers. Blackmail is, of course, part of the Hamas repertoire. One of the main reasons why Hamas launched thousands of rockets and sent terrorists into Israel via tunnel in the summer of 2014 was to solve …

Until I moved to Israel, the closest I got to farming was knowing were to get good produce at a farmers market.  Since living in Israel, I see how the simple act of eating and growing produce is a fulfillment of God’s promise, and Ezekiel’s prophesy which impacts and moves me personally. “I will make them and the places all …

This is Raz. I never met him. As we recount 50 years this week since the victory of the Six Day War we also remember another war that began 35 years ago this week. It took place in Lebanon, a war with a much less clear outcome, but also with consequences that linger today. I arrived in Israel a few …

Every time I see the movie “Titanic” I hope that there will be a different outcome.  I hope that the captain will successfully avert the massive iceberg.  I hope that the ship won’t sink; that so many of its passengers won’t perish.  I hope that “Jack” will live to write his strongly worded letter to the shipping line. Despite knowing …
