The Greatest Miracle
So I had another suggestion for him: Why not tell them about the single greatest uncontested miracle of human history - the return of the Jewish People to their ancestral homeland? An ancient nation, exiled and dispersed and massacred with the most horrific persecution in history, fulfills its ancient prophecies and returns to its homeland, to create an amazingly vibrant country and triumph against overwhelming odds. What better validation is that?
"Yeah," he agreed. "But that sounds like Zionism, and so the yeshivah won't let me teach it."
Happy birthday Israel, and thank you to everyone who helped create this inspirational miracle!
