CONGRATS OBAMA. YOU HAVE GIVEN US JEWS HOPE

November 7, 2008

Congratulations to the people of America and to Barack Obama.  I watched Obama’s acceptance speech many times throughout the day and relished in the joy and celebrations, hoping that we, the Jewish people will also celebrate soon, when we will finally have a leader to show us the way.

In Jewish law, when one sees a monarch, we are commanded to say the blessing, “Blessed are You, Lord our God, who has given from His glory to flesh and blood” as a king is considered a reflection of the majesty and authority of God Himself.

When I saw Obama stand in front of millions of adoring fans, who believe he is their hope for the future, I had an inkling of how it will be when Moshaich comes.  I saw his success as a reflection of the day when we Jews will all come together as one people, filled with love and hope.

May it happen speedily in our days. Amen.

    AS I WAS FINISHING YOUR BOOK, READING THE LAST FEW PAGES ON NOVEMBER 28, THE JEWISH RABBI IN INDIA WAS BEING SLAUGHTERED ALONG WITH HIS WIFE AND ASSOCIATES.
    THIS IS GOING TO BE THE WAY THAT LIFE WILL BE NOW THAT WE HAVE A GOVERNMENT COMING TO POWER IN THE UNITED STATES THAT DOES NOT BELIEVE IN ANY TORTURE, HOLDING PRISONERS AT GITMO, AND TALKING TO THE IRANIANS WITHOUT ANY PRE-CONDITIONS.
    UNDER GEROGE BUSH WE WERE FAIRLY SAFE. NOW ALL HELL WILL BREAK LOOSE AND WE WILL BE AT THE MERCY OF THE TERRORISTS AND THE RADICAL ISLAMISTS. IT WOULD BE WONDERFUL IF TOLERANCE WOULD PROVIDE A KINDER, GENTLER WORLD, BUT ALAS, “TOLERANCE” ONLY BREEDS COMPLACENCY.
    AND WITH COMPLACENCY, WE DROP OUR DEFENSES.

    hi Monica,
    You call 9/11 fairly safe?
    I am so deeply saddened by the death of the Rabbi and his wife at the Chabad House. i have visited many Chaad houses and these emissaries are absolute angels, sacrificing so much for the people of Israel. Baruch Dayan Emeth.
