On one of the days during my February trip to Israel a couple delegates from the group wandered off to do some quick gift shopping. We headed for the busy street of Ben Yehuda in Jerusalem. One person was looking for a Torah and the other a couple of small Shofars for the kids. We stepped into our last shop to look and we were greeted by the owner, Danny. When he realized we were American’s he asked the us a question that stunned us all. “Where are all the Americans?” I asked what he meant by this. He explained that he hasn’t seen many Americans in Israel for a couple of years. I told him we were experiencing financial troubles. Danny replied with the sincerest statement. I have it recorded for you to hear with your own ears.
The people of Israel are calling for you! Won’t you please answer them and come with me!
