What is Israel?

1

At the May 19 Israel Fest at the Bender Jewish Community Center of Greater Washington in Rockville, we asked what was at the top of everybody’s mind.

Anna Cohen: “I have dual citizenship. So, for me it’s home.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sharon Tadmor: “It’s my home. My whole family is there.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Raymond Friedman: “It’s our homeland. It’s where it all started.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Leonard Lamm: “The Jewish homeland, historically and today. A place for refuge for Jews that will always be holy to the Jewish people.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

James Hetzel: Israel is God’s country. So is Wisconsin — Im from Wisconsin and that’s what we say. But Israel really is.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rellie Rozin, with her family: “Home. And it’s complicated.”

  1. Israel is the state my aunt & uncle helped build from a wasteland called Palestine. My pride in their accomplishments runs deep in my soul and it is painful to see what’s happening to the land for which they sacrificed so much. I regret that my aunt’s passing a year ago at age 100 went basically unnoticed (except of course by her family) by the state to which she gave so much.
