The two thousand year old hope of the Jewish people – to return to their homeland – has been realized; yet is not completed. We must continue to stand in support and prayer with Israel and its eternal capital, Jerusalem.
At this time, while we commemorate the nation’s achievements, we shall always remember the many who have paid with their lives, and those who continue to be willing to do so, in order that today we can live, prosper and create as free people in our Land, as promised by God.
Our hearts and thoughts are with the families of the fallen and all who have lost beloved ones.
May our Father comfort each one and surround them with His blessing and strength.
