Today is Jerusalem Day. In Israel they are preparing festivities (probably already underway given the time difference).
Video from 2016.
Why is this so moving to me? Never mind the fact that I lost family members… THIS is a nation, a people, and a culture with a memory. It brings to mind another video:
Passover is coming soon. Please consider a tax-deductible gift to Connections Israel so that IDF soldiers on duty can celebrate.
(Full disclosure: I’m on the governing board of Connections Israel.)
Then this is for YOU!
A Gadsden Flag kippa! Suede with a nice, crisp “Don’t Tread on Me!” logo.
I am selling these for Chai – $18 each – including shipping and handling. I know that’s a “chai” price – pun intended – but please consider this a contribution to my savings to travel to Eretz Yisrael as soon as I can afford it…. I am on the Governing Board of a charity in Israel that helps the IDF – Connections Israel. Among other reasons for going I would really like to see the good work they’re doing.
Please reply in the comments with an email (e.g. emailid (at) xyz.com) and I’ll reply to you directly about the details for payment.
