I was touched, and deeply saddened by the "tone" of this editorial, and am wondering how broad-spread this depression is, throughout Israel. Nowhere in the article, or any of the responses do I find any sense that you are, since Abraham, God's "Chosen People". Do you no longer find any sense of truth. comfort and strong conviction in that? Are you so buried under your studies of your Old Testament - or in your day-to-day (and very real) struggles that you've lost the knowledge of, and trust in God's very real (and very present) love for you? Take heart! You are not alone! God is with you, and many of us in the US, who are not even of Jewish heritage are for you, and will be with you - attempting to walk alongside - in fervent support! Have faith! You are loved.
