News direct from Israelis in Israel!
If you are Jewish, you have the right to know who your Messiah is!
Don't ask the rabbis who have not found the Messiah, ask the rabbis who have found the Messiah!
How do you know if a rabbi has found the Messiah? Ask him, if he gets very angry then you know he has not.
אם כן אתה יהודי, זכותך לדעת מי המשיח שלך
על תשאל הרבנים שלא מצאו את המשיח, תשאל הרבנים שמצאו את המשיח
איך אתה יודע עם רבי מצא את המשיח, תשאל אותו, אם יכעס, אתה יודע שהוא לא מצא את המשיח
We have been targeted with many Kassam rockets from Gaza here in Sderot since Friday night 5th August. Please pray for the residents here in the south of Israel.
The Iron Dome is destroying many rockets over our heads in the sky of Sderot that are aimed at Jerusalem.
Is Rev. Prof. Dr Jerry Pillay the elect general secretary of the World Council of Churches anti-Semitic?
There have been articles recently in Israeli media accusing him of being anti-Semitic, so I feel I need to address this as someone who knows Rev. Pillay personally.
I attended St Andrews Presbyterian Church in South Africa when Rev. Pillay was the senior minister and I met him in person and found him to be a man of integrity and empathy. He was very well aware that I am Jewish and he demonstrated more kindness towards me than anyone else has. At the time I was in poor health and Rev. Pillay and St Andrews assisted me greatly. I will always be indebted to him.
Jewish Israelis forced into exile from Israel and lose their families
Have you heard of this?
There are Jews who gave up their lives and homes is the diaspora to come home to Israel and make a new start, only to be forced into permanent exile and start over again in the country they came from.
How can this be?
Jews face enormous challenges of finding work, language and adjusting to life and culture in Israel. Rent and the cost of living is significantly higher than in most countries Jewish immigrants come from. This can strain marriages to the point of breaking.
Child welfare in many regions is dominated by secular feminists who have a biased agenda and think they are doing women a favour by encouraging them to divorce and claim child maintenance. Under Israeli law child support is higher than in many other countries. The laws are very outdated and were written in a time that few women worked. The Israeli Knesset gives these outdated laws little attention for reform because they meet frequently for emergency security meetings because of foreign enemies.
Many Jewish immigrants don’t have family in Israel beyond their household and when an immigrant who is still learning Hebrew and working a minimal wage job as he is still integrating into Israeli society, is forced to pay high child support for several children, he cannot pay his own rent as well. He has no family to live with and has no option but to flee the State of Israel and return to the country of his birth.
His children will grow up in poverty and go to school hungry without a father figure in the home. Usually their mother puts the blame on the father and the children are enticed into drugs and prostitution because of their dire situation. Research has shown that children alienated from their father are not able to keep a job and succeed in marriage.
Those children will have children who will grow up in poverty and live off welfare and the cycle repeats.
I had the opportunity to listen many times to a lawyer who practiced for more than 35 years in Israel who had South American clients as she grew up in Argentina and could speak Spanish. She told me many such stories. It is very sad to hear what happens to the children and the father living in exile having lost his family. Due to the exile, he cannot get his divorce recognised outside of the State of Israel and cannot remarry and usually commits adultery as a result.
The mother can remarry as she is living in Israel and is not in exile.
Many such fathers cannot afford legal representation and their story is not told.
Please pray for these families.
