This is the month of Elul. Elul is the last month in the Jewish year. Rosh Hashanah, the new year comes at the end of Elul. During this month, the people take a look at themselves. They do some soul searching, with an eye on repentance. They also start reading through the Torah again.
That is important because it really points to Israel’s greatest weapon…the L-rd G-d! Soul searching and repentance are supposed to lead us closer to the Creator and to help us make sure we are in right relationship with Him.
There is no human governmental power that will stand resolutely with Israel. There are many individuals that will, but no governments. Even our nation, a long time friend and ally of Israel, has been turning a cold shoulder to her during this administration.
Sadly, Israel is still largely secular. Our prayer is that she will turn back to the Creator…to the One True G-d.
