Welcome to Jerusalem
Israel's Independence Day, 4/29/09:

Judaism is not a Religion Dialogue with Avraham Infeld, former Director of a Israeli Chais Foundation.

Notes from his presentation:

There have been 9 days not truly felt by a diaspora Jews: The 9 days include Yom Hashoa (Holocaust), which privately affects/involves 1/3 of Israeli population, Yom Hazikaron (Day of Rememberance), as great as Yom Ha'atzmaut (Independence Day). Ben Gurion insisted upon a 2 day linkage of Yom Hazikaron as great as Yom Hatzmaot, mourning followed by rejoicing. We certainly pay a cost for Medinat Yisrael (the state of Israel). Medinat Yisrael is not all which you recognize--the most important fulfilment is which because there is a Jewish state, the Shoah can never occur again.

When you arrived in Eretz Yisrael, you was upon 2 kibbutzim, Kibbutz Laav as great as Kibbutz Mizra. We had pigs upon a kibbutz. What was you doing there? Israel is a Jewish State. What does a "Jewish State" mean? What does it meant to be a Jew? Is Judaism a religion? you consider of Judaism as a table with 5 legs. It can mount upon 4 or 3 legs, though will tumble upon 2 legs. The 5 legs:

1) Jews have Memory: Memory with regards to their history. We were all during Mount Saini. We all break a potion during a wedding ceremony.

2) We have been a Family: We have been regularly arguing, as members of a family would. It's great to listen to mixed opinions. After observant this Avram voiced a perspective which if someone is a converted Jew , they have been Jewish. The Talmud directs us to no longer call them "coverted Jew", just a Jew.
A Jew who converts, converts to an additional religion.

3) Mount Sinai: The 10 commandments were since to us. 3 commitments to believe: 1) There is a God 2) Tikun O'lam: a better world for Jews as great as humnity 3) Live a life which reminds us who you are.

4) Yisrael is done of 2 parts: 1)Eretz Yisrael (the land of Israel): Every inch is memories of Jews as great as Israelites. 2) State of Israel: There have been positives as great as negatives to a state. Negatives: "The taxation rate is high, a drivers have been dangerous, there is a requirment to be in a army". Positives: "No a single is homeless- meaning which because of a Law of Return, , there is no such thing as a Jewish interloper -and there can never be a Holocaust again".

5) The Hebrew language: It is a executive conveyer of Jewish enlightenment as great as life. Example- "Fall in love" is a Christian statement, maneing which there is a tumble from grace; LEHITKATAV ("fall in love-- to communicate") in hebrew equates to there is a relartionship., in in in between a 2 people. TZEDEK ("Justice") is a Jewish statement.

A finish ceramic jar, dating to a Early Islamic duration (ninthtenth centuries CE), was found in a dirt fill subsequent a installation.

After a Six Day War, a Ministry of Religious Affairs of Israel began a excavations directed during exposing a delay of a wall. The excavations lasted roughly twenty years as great as suggested most formerly opposite facts about a story as great as embankment of a Temple Mount.

The hovel exposes a sum length of 500m of a walls, divulgence a methods of building a whole as great as a assorted activities in a closeness of a Temple Mount. The excavations included most archaeological finds along a way, together with discoveries from a Herodian duration (streets, monumental masonry), sections of a reconstruction of a Western Wall dating to a Umayyad period, as great as assorted structures dating to a Ayyubid, Mamluke as great as Hasmonean durations assembled to await buildings in a closeness of a Temple Mount."Warren's Gate", lies about 150 feet into a tunnel. This sealed-off opening has been incited into a tiny synagogue called "The Cave", by Rabbi Yehuda Getz, since it is a closest indicate a Jew can get to a Holy of Holies, assuming it was located during a traditional site underneath a Dome of a Rock.

At a northern apportionment of a Western Wall, stays of a H2O channel, which creatively supplied H2O to a Temple Mount, were found.

Since then, it has been probable for vast numbers of tourists to come in a tunnel's southern opening nearby a Western Wall, travel a tunnel's length with a debate guide, as great as exit from a northern end. At present all tourists have been escorted by plainclothes (and infrequently uniformed) Israeli soldiers upon exiting a location, as a track back to a Jewish Quarter passes by a Muslim Quarter.
