The Power of Unity

80 diasporas

30,000 young Jews

In Jerusalem

1,200 Israeli Jews

Each representing their nation

But all standing proudly

In the Jewish nation

To which they belong

 

Flags of each nation

All escorted  by the

Flag of Israel

The Jewish national Flag

 

Faces as different as the faces

Of the  world

But as common as the people of Israel

All beautiful, handsome

And proud to be part of this people

This nation and culture

A “shadchan’s” paradise

 

Once the Maccabees

Stood up to the rapid hellenization

Of the Jewish people

Under the influence of

Greek Culture

A cultural struggle as well

As a military struggle.

And they won

 

Today the internal cultural

Struggle persists amongst us

And the battle continues

But the Maccabiah draws

Us into a bond of

Jewish strength

Israel, Jerusalem

Seeking commonality

Seeking unity

Seeking connection

Proudly singing Hatikva

And expressing dedication to

The living Jewish People

עם ישראל חי

 

 

A Body Without A Soul or A soul without a body

Is there a Judaism without a God?

Is there a Judaism without Torah?

Is there a Judaism without a Jewish people?

Is there a Judaism without ethics?

Is there a Judaism without prophecy ?

Is there a Judaism without law?

Is there a Judaism without prayer?

Is there a Judaism without study?

Is there  a Judaism without Yom Kippur?

Or Pesach/vChanukah etc!

Is there a Judaism without struggle?

Is there a Judaism without hope?

Is there a Judaism without a vision of a better day?

Is there a Judaism without “Tikun”?

Is there a Judaism without education?

Is there a Judaism without life cycle events?

Is there a Judaism without Shma Yisrael?

Is there a Judaism without JEWS?

 

So how can there be a Judaism without

 Eretz Yisrael ?
