The Israeli Knesset just introduced a bill to have a national Aliyah day on the 10th of Nisan for Jews who move to Israel from other countries.
The 10th of Nisan is, according to the Book of Joshua, the date of the first-ever mass aliyah, with the Biblical narrative relating that the Israelites crossed the Jordan River into the Promised Land on that date, ending their 40 years of wandering in the desert.
What do YOU think? Have you made Aliyah?
Jerusalem symbolizes the reason and purpose for our lives here. It is the ‘why’ and ‘wherefore’ explaining why we are fighting. We will continue to do whatever we can to ensure that Jerusalem will forever remain the capital of Israel.
And as the Prophet Isaiah said 2,700 years ago: ‘On your ramparts, O Jerusalem, I have placed guards all day and all night."
