With G-d's help, one day we'll physically be a part of the rebuilding of Yerushalayim. For now, we pray, encourage, and stand with those of you who are home.

???

According to the Torah, Jerusalem and Israel is going to be rebuilt when Moshiach comes, and G-d decides. It's not in ours or the world's hands. We are just lucky now that we have access to the land.

How do you know Yerushalayim and Israle will be rebuilt when Moshiach comes? Perhaps the Jews inhabit, settle and work the land and rebuild it with G-ds help now, Moshiach will come and complete the mission. And nothing is "luck", its all hashgacha.

mistaken credit

This article has been mistakenly accredited to Stanley Goldfoot. It was actually written by journalist Eliezer Whartman, now age 91, who is currently living in Ramat Eshkol in Jerusalem. I want to set the record straight on his behalf.
