Torah is not merely the 'written' text of the Five Books of Moshe Torah is the meaning enshrined within the text as expounded and unfolded by successive generations of Sages and Teachers among Klal Yisra'el [Hertz Siddur, 1948, p. 356]

When NASA first started sending up astronauts, they quickly discovered that ball-point pens would not work in zero gravity. To combat the problem, NASA scientists spent a decade and $1.2 billion to develop a pen that writes in zero gravity, upside down, underwater, on almost any surface including glass and at temperatures ranging from below freezing to 300 Celsius.

Stop President Obama From Putting Israel on the Chopping Block!
Dear Friend of Jerusalem,
One would expect the President of the United States to stand firm against America's enemies and support its allies. Today however, President Obama used the forum of the United Nations to abandon Israel and embrace the unfounded demands of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO).
President Obama became the first US President to refer to the territories that Israel won in the (defensive) Six Day War as, "Occupied Territory." This implies that Israel must retreat from its own land, return to indefensible '67 borders, divide Jerusalem, and capitulate to Palestinian forces bent on destroying Israel.
A few weeks ago, One Jerusalem sent out a Red Alert warning that Obama was going to ambush Israel at the United Nations. He did it, today.
Israel faces a real challenge with Obama. On the one hand, President Obama continually pressures Israel to give up its secure borders. On the other hand, Obama allows for existential threats to Israel, by refusing to engage the US in actively stopping Iran's nuclear weapons program.
One Jerusalem has been -- and will continue to be -- on the front lines, in defense of Jerusalem and the Jewish State of Israel. When Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu arrived in New York this week, we were invited to meet and strategize with him.
Now we need you to step up your efforts for the difficult months ahead. We count on you to make phone calls, sign petitions, and demonstrate in the streets.
We need each other now more than ever. Sign up!

Torah - It is a Tree of Life for those who grasp it, Its ways are ways of pleasantness and all its paths are shalom. Lengthy days are at its right; at its left are wealth and honor. HaShem desired, for the sake of Yisrael's righteousness, that the Torah be made great and glorious.
