From the searing ashes of six million murdered in the Holocaust,
G-d remembered the Jewish people,
and restored them to the promised land.
The fulfillment of hope and yearnings for freedom and independence,
and never to be slaughtered like sheep again.
Some say that we are waiting for the Messiah,
But to me, the miracle of Israel is the beginning of the redemption.
While it is difficult to see Israel maligned in their continued fight for survival,
surely there will come a time when we can see clear the wisdom for all to live and let live.
May G-d bless Israel to live in peace and security.
