This Shabbat is Rabbi Jonathan Sack’s Yahrzeit. One of the many brilliant insights he taught in his lifetime was that hope required action and courage. In his spirit I would like to invite you to have the courage to take action.

The America Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) was founded in 1963 to educate our members of Congress about the importance of the US-Israel relationship. The events of October 7th make this relationship more important than ever.

The United States gives Israel over $3.4 billion a year to spend on weapons to defend itself. Approximately 75% of this money comes back to United States where many of the necessary weapons are made.

There is currently a bipartisan effort to supplement this generous allocation with an additional $14.3 billion to replace iron dome weapons as well as other critical defense needs. It is crucial at this bill gets passed.

We are working hard to contact all members of Congress to explain the need for this and to encourage them to vote yes. Be aware that every congressional office is being inundated by anti-Israel propaganda.

It is crucial that we as a community contact our members of Congress and ask them for their support. AIPAC has made this very easy. If you give me your email addresses, I will have them send notifications to you that require less than five minutes of your time to submit. You do not have to be a member of AIPAC to help us keep congressional support for the state of Israel strong in these very difficult and challenging times. The hope for Israel requires our courage and or actions. I can think of no better way to honor the memory of Rabbi Sacks.
