A Letter to My American Friend via Naomi Ragen – an excerpt –
“And so, dear friend, I must turn to you and ask you for your help. Unlike most appeals from Israel to American Jews, this doesn’t involve writing any checks, supporting any institutions. Israel is growing stronger economically every day, thank God, using its genius and creativity to fill the world with important and wonderful new medical and technological advances.
It has become everything its friends and supporters dreamed it could be. A place where every Jew was welcomed home whenever he decided he needed to come here. American Jews have given their money most generously. But very few of them have joined their lives to that of the Jewish state.”
