Holy warriors that turn their gaze upwards to our Heavenly Father. In joy and tears. By song and dance. With an uplifted heart and a yearning soul. Soldiers of the Holy Land. They stand before G-d Almighty. Ready to lay down their lives in complete faith. The Redemption is here. Just open your eyes. Oh L-rd, return us to the Promised Land. In joy and tears. By song and dance. With an uplifted heart and a yearning soul. To serve You, and only You.
Please see my new article in The Times of Israel called “Playing The Odds.”The stranger told me: Precisely fifty years ago, the doctor told me the exact same thing about having a one in a hundred chance of paralysis if they operated. So, what did I do? I went to see the Rabbi (Avigdor Miller) and ask his advice, and the Rabbi says to me: “A Jew doesn’t take odds like that!”
I thought to myself while Jews don’t take those wild odds (1 in a 100 of paralysis), why do they play the odds with their souls by pretending to be religious on the outside, but on the inside and away from human eyes doing evil? Surely, we all know that G-d sees everything and that a faithful judgment awaits us all. And it all made sense not to play the odds not only with our physical health, but also with our spiritual wellbeing.
