As a Rabbi and a man of G-d, I am asking to all of you to pray for this nation and the nation of Israel.
The Jewish people just celebrated Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. For us, it is a time of celebration and rebirth—a time for new beginnings.
Many Americans have suffered disastrous storms from Louisiana to New York, just as we are about to commemorate the 20th Anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on our nation.
Israel, already surrounded by enemies who wish them dead, now needs to contend with a newly emboldened Taliban – an organization encouraged by Joe Biden’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan – and a resurgent Iran, anxious to fill the void the President created.
Our nation could use a new beginning. We are the Coalition for Jewish Values. Our coalition comprises over 1,500 traditional rabbis nationwide focused on restoring America’s moral foundation by mobilizing citizens, educating citizens, and advocating for public policy positions based on Biblical Values.
As people who live our lives by Biblical Values, we cannot permit America to continue this slouching towards Gomorrah.
I need you to Pray for America. I need you to Pray for Israel. I need you to support the Coalition for Jewish Values as we push our nation’s RETURN to the Biblical Values our Founding Fathers envisioned.
Biblical Values are the centerpiece of this nation’s ethos—like when government leaders often get sworn into office on a Bible.
It is an insult to see the policies emanating from Congress and the White House that send the message loud and clear that America can be beaten.
That is why we, the Coalition for Jewish Values are not waiting til next year. We are already mobilizing voters who believe in our values, what America now calls Judeo-Christian ethics, to stand up and go to the ballot box in 2022.
We reach and educate through social media, podcasts, our writings, lectures on and offline, as well as meetings with policymakers and top decision-makers in Washington and all 50 state capitols.
As scholars of the Torah, we view the attacks on America’s culture and values as attacks on people of faith. When churches and synagogues are forced to stop offering worship services, our nation has lost its way.
America and Israel have faced dark times before, and with the help of an Almighty G-d, they have prospered. We can do it again, but only if we stand together and fight for what we know to be right.
America needs a new beginning – The Coalition for Jewish Values is fighting for the future, and we need to know that you are standing with us.
May God continue to bless America and Israel,
Rabbi Yaakov Menken
Managing Director, Coalition for Jewish
