'We came here to feel safe. Now my children refuse to walk to school alone, just like they did in Paris,' French émigré says after twin attacks in Ra'anana.13:27 13.10.15 | 9 comments
Rav Avraham Yitzhak HaKohen Kook already said 100 years ago that the attempt to separate the Jew's national identity from their religious one would fail. Some who rejected religious life for secular Jewish nationalism saw their decendents reject that secular nationalism and leave Zionism and the Jewish people entirely. However, secular Zionism's role in bringing the Jewish people back into contact with the land, Eretz Israel, is energizing a return to religious roots among others in the secular camp as is reported in this article and as was predicted by Rav Kook, 100 years ago. This will reenergize the exhausted, corrupt leadership of the country so a bright future lies ahead.
