Portion Vayay Tzay - What a way to GO

Portion Vayay Tzay - What a way to GO
Okay - not what I was planning to send out this shabbat - but powerful
One of my Rabbi Friend-Teacher guys wrote this AM
"כִּֽי־אִתְּךָ֥ אֲנִ֛י נְאֻם־ה' לְהֽוֹשִׁיעֶ֑ךָ כִּי֩ אֶעֱשֶׂ֨ה כָלָ֜ה בְּכָֽל־הַגּוֹיִ֣ם ׀ אֲשֶׁ֧ר הֲפִצוֹתִ֣יךָ שָּׁ֗ם אַ֤ךְ אֹֽתְךָ֙ לֹֽא־אֶעֱשֶׂ֣ה כָלָ֔ה".
(ירמיהו פרק ל)
from the prophet Jeremiah Chapter 30
The Almighty promises to save us from the gentiles - 
- maybe not in Pittsburg
everyone from france and Israel on the plane yesterday asked me when the Americans will come to Israel because of Pittsburg
and I told them G-d wants American Jews to become STRONG Jews in America - because Israel NEEDS STREONG HOLY JEWS IN AMErica
and THEN when it is time they will follow a JEWISH Messiah to our Holy Land -
IN THE PORTION JACOB has to leave ISRAEL because ESAU wants him "taken out" but
he prays to G-d to take care of him - and the Almighty sends ANGELS down the LADDER - who will protect him
So Rabbi Yaskil writes
of 60000 residents in Ashkelon
getting attacked by rockets and firebombs last week
And with Iron Dome protecting the city
there was ONE home of an Arab guy married to a Jewish woman
and a rocket hit their building
hit their apartment
and killed the guy - not the woman - in their bedroom
 but we should TRY - 
accept there IS an Almighty whose WAYS we don't understand -
 but who REALLY wants us to be HOLY JEWS
to TRY to get close to the Almighty
to TRY to do what is proper 
to make the Jewish People Stronger
the world NEEDs holy Jews - and
assimilation does NOT make us stronger
we MAY pick up some holy souls who will cling to the people of Israel
Jacob survives his cunning father in law because he KNOWS G-d is watching  and helping him 
and comes HOME to ISRAEL
Shabbat Shalom
