Yom HaZikaron 2012

On the eve of Yom HaZikaron, Memorial Day for the 22,993 fallen Israeli soldiers, I am reminded that we do much better for ourselves when we unite and work together as a large, extended family.  I am also reminded of and grateful for their sacrifice, and wonder where I, and the Jews of the world, would be if we hadn't fought for the right to our country.

It is a privilege and honor to live in Jerusalem, Israel for the last 15 years, and I can't think of any other place on the planet where I would wish to raise my daughter Raphaela.

It is a daily struggle, the enemies constantly knock at the gate, and the State of Israel should never be taken for granted.
