What I'm telling my kids about Israel

August 6, 2014

Remember the story of Purim when our enemies wanted to annihilate our nation? By Divine Providence Esther was the queen of Persia and planned to meet with the king to save the Jewish people. But before the great miracles, things seemed bleak and the people were afraid, and so Mordechai responded to the call of the hour by calling a gathering. It was a gathering for children - to spent time sharing words of Torah and prayer.
 

Now, too, all of us have been praying for Am Yisrael. We know that Israel is "eretz asher tamid eini Hashem elokecha bo..." - a land that Hashem is guarding always. At the same time we feel the need for protection, strength and true peace.

 

Every person’s prayers and deeds make a difference, but the words and deeds of children are extra special. “Mipi Olelim Veyonkim Yisadeta Oz” - "From the mouths of children and infants you have ordained strength." What you do is very powerful.

 

And so: 
* When saying Shema at night, say an extra prayer for our brothers and sisters in Israel. 
* Say a chapter of Tehilim at every opportunity – even while you're in the car, playing or in the kitchen. (Psalm 20 is traditionally said in times of distress.) 
* Give even just one coin to charity every day. 
* Buy a letter in a Torah scroll to foster Jewish unity. 

* Reach out in Ahavat Yisrael by sending a note to a soldier in Israel.

 

Drop a pebble in the water: 
Just a splash and it is gone; 
But there’s half-a-hundred ripples 
Circling on and on and on, 
Spreading from the center, 
Flowing on out to the sea. 
And there is no way of telling 
Where the end is going to be... 

 

(Excerpt from poem By James W. Foley)

 

Your every small deed really makes a difference!
