In life, we can either let our experiences make us bitter, or we can channel that feeling towards being a good example in order to improve things.

An amazing wonder

Many different nations have come and gone,
babalonia, the roman and greek empire, etc.
But, we are still here.


For many centuries we have been
persecuted in different places,
each time people predicting that
we will be wiped out.
And yet we have survived.


1948, surrounded was Israel by
many countries who went
to war with it.
'Israel doesn't have a chance'
was the thought on many minds.
That was very logical.
It was very small at the time,
and didn't have a lot of equipment.
How was Israel going to defeat
the millions of people surrounding them?
And yet they did, and they won
with the help of Hashem

Our survival througout the centuries
is no short of a miracle.
Hashem is keeping us alive.
Our job is to each learn the instructions and
lesssons He gave us and practice it,
thereby bringing light into the world.
