Stand With Us was founded in 2001 in response to the misinformation that surrounds the Middle East conflict, and the inappropriate often anti-Semitic language used about Israel and/or the Jewish people worldwide. StandWithUs has offices and chapters around the world and is dedicated to empowering Israel supporters with a wide variety of materials, resources and tools in order to be able to effectively combat the growing anti-Israel campaigns and speakers.
Shameful: the White House Press secretary issues an embarrassing correction to President Obama's address for Shimon Peres' funeral in Jerusalem, Israel indicating that Jerusalem is not in Israel. This prompts the question: what country's security was protecting President Obama throughout his time in Jerusalem?
As we welcome in Shabbat this Friday on the last Shabbat of the Jewish year, we remember the legacy of Shimon Peres שמעון פרס - a true Zionist who dedicated his entire life to serving the state of Israel. A great loss for Israel this week.
Am Yisrael Chai and may his memory continue to be a blessing.
