“Let me just say to the enemies of our people, wherever they may be... ‘Mir Valen Zey Iberleben’ — we shall outlive them.’ And to the friends of mankind, wherever they may be, ‘Chazak V’Hamatz’ — Be strong and brave...they that sow in tears shall yet reap in joy.”
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. & Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel
“Let us not wallow in the valley of despair...I still have a dream that one day this nation will... live out the true meaning of its creed...that all men are created equal...that my children...will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” — Dr. King
“The image of G-d is either in every man or in no man...the universe is done. The greater masterpiece still undone is history...it is within the realm of history that man is charged with G-d’s mission.” — Rabbi Heschel
"The power of resistance which has enabled the Jewish people to survive for thousands of years has been based to a large extent on tradi tions of mutual helpfulness. In these years of affliction our readiness to help one another is being put to an especially severe test. May we stand this test as did our fathers before us.”
When we return to Zion we will be like dreamers — Psalm 126
Theodore Herzl, David Ben Gurion and Yitzchak Rabin all had dreams in their youth about what they would later accomplish in life. Herzl dreamed of Zion, Ben Gurion dreamed that he was Herzl’s alter-ego. Rabin dreamed that he would one day liberate Jerusalem. All of them fulfilled their dreams.
