We seem to be living in the 1930s.

This is so sad, this is not something that needs to be happening. Keep up the amazing work Ishay

While it’s true America has been a safe haven for Jews for centuries, Hashem is telling you to come home to ארצנו הקדושה

I wouldn’t move to Eretz Hakodesh if you paid me. Unfortunately, Israel has many terrible problems, the biggest of which is the amount of Israeli Arab’s living in the holy land who have now risen up against their benevolent hosts. A Jewish politician once stood up and spoke about this grave danger, but he was called a far-right terrorist and eventually he was assassinated. No thanks. I will find another solution to the growing Anti Semitism in the U.S. Moving to Israel is most definitely not the solution.

Increasing the Jewish majority in Israel is the answer to the problem you noted. It worked when it was last done with leadership.

That Jewish politician begged Jews to leave the U.S. for Eretz Yisroel. He was murdered, al kiddush Hashem, in the U.S.

Indeed. Much as some people don’t want to hear it. Without two institutions, there will be no Jewish people by the end of the century. The first is the State of Israel. The second is Chabad Lubavitch. In my view, Chabad are the only that will survive in the galut. Shluchim etc are needed for that function, to save those Jews who will otherwise be lost. But the existence of our state is absolutely indispensable. It is disheartening to hear even some people here suggest that it is just too hard or too unsafe. Although we do need anash in… Read more »

Why we had people counter protesting these bored pro Hamas-ISIS terrorists?
We should not listen to them and just continue working on bringing moshiach, a better world.

Why the negative slant?

My grandchildren attended the concert and had a wonderful experience. Give credit to the Harvard U Police, or whoever the security was, for keeping the protesters far from the concert goers. Sold out Jewish concerts demonstrates our community’s faith and strength.

This is crazy
I was at the concert I live in Boston and Palestine is taking over the entire community.
We have to get this crap out of Boston

One step is to stop referring to this fictional country that is meant to displace the heart of our homeland. If you keep referring to it as a realityx, it will become one.

Tell future protesters you are giving money to tzedakahs in Eretz Yisroel for every protester who shows up.
