My friend yesterday asked me yesterday, do I consider myself a Jew to which I responded, “yes.” I asked him the same thing, to which he responded, “yes.”
We both asked almost at the same time, “why do you consider yourself a Jew?”
We had the same exact thought: ‘Because if and when it happens again, all Jews, religious, non-religious and even atheists, will be on the same side of the barbed wire fence.’
…. and we the same thought next: “Not this time.”
David Harris message today, from AJC:
“tomorrow …on the holiest day of the Jewish calendar, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will unleash his anti-Semitic, anti-Israel, and anti-democratic message on an audience of world leaders at the UN General Assembly.”
May all wake up to the sounds of the Shofar and the world be at peace this coming New Year.
