Fifty of the most prominent Reform, Conservative, Orthodox and Independent rabbis in Los Angeles have signed this letter to congress and the senate. Please read their letter and share it with your friends. They are unified on this issue:  "we strongly support and heed the Jewish Federation’s recent call to action to express our collective opposition to this dangerous agreement."

There are also MANY rabbis and other Jews who support the Iran Deal.

With more and more voices from the right, left and center decrying the deal with Iran, it is not surprising that a majority of American's in recent CNN poll are against the deal. The more you read ...

Perfectly stated
An amendment linking lifted sanctions to behavioral change by the USSR defied Nixon’s detente plans.

Actually it's not bad at all. Like it or don't, it's your choice. To hate and name call just shows how immature, angry, foolish and judgemental you are. Call me names or act childish is your choice. I won't stoop to any child's level.

Condemnation in words is easy but not effective. Hashem gives us the remedy in Torah against proliferation of indiscrimate damage - turn back to the path of a close relationship with Hashem by following His laws of service, truth and kindness as defined in His Torah - if we draw closer to Hashem, He will draw closer to us and save us from such damage - it's our responsibility to do His will and not try to impose our will in His name as others do....

The deal is revealed to be more dangerous than previously known:
In its investigation of Iran’s past nuclear-weapons-related work, the IAEA will rely on Iran to collect samples at its Parchin military base and other locations.

Rebbe, if you want a war and a air strike just say so.  You are quibbling. Pretending to find the diplomatic process in error  by digging into an terribly complicated deal is a waste of time.  You obviously believe the President is a bad actor and the enemy of Israel.  it would be easier if you just stated your case.  That is the argument you have to win not the one you are presenting.

This man is no warmonger - he's a liberal democrat that thinks that this deal with Iran is NO GOOD for America.

Rebbe, I don't think that any, including you, is a war monger.  But I believe that the alternative to a agreement is a military offensive and a long protracted military action that ends up exactly where you don't want to be.  I can accept your argument if you explain what exactly is a GOOD DEAL in detail.  no slogans. otherwise then you must accept my alternative and be willing to own up to it.

From my Sermon on Shabbat
As we read this past Shabbat in synagogue from Parsha Shemot, God says to Moses, "I will be THAT I will be." Rashi teaches that God wants Moshe to reassure the Jewish people that "I will be with yo...

This was an excellent article and a good reminder to all of us what is most important in times of tragedy, to help those who have lost loved ones and been injured to heal so that we too may heal. For if we truly love our brothers and sisters in Yeshua Messiah our hearts too will be broken.
