'No Woman Left Behind' Campaign Aims to Bring Jewish Mothers From Disadvantaged Countries to Israel

NEW YORK,  The Jewish Women’s Renaissance Project (JWRP), which brings Jewish mothers on life-changing “Momentum” Israel trips, launched a new campaign to help disadvantaged women from around the world experience the trips as well. The JWRP’s “No Woman Left Behind” campaign was created to bring Jewish mothers in countries deemed “at-risk” – where anti-Semitism is resurging or Jewish heritage is declining. Among the countries JWRP is targeting are France, Poland, Hungary and Romania. JWRP supporters Debra and David Magerman are also providing a matching dollar-for-dollar grant, doubling each dollar donated. The campaign, which launched last week, has already raised more…

An Unthwartable Counter-terrorism Defense

By Dr. David LefflerAs demonstrated by the recent wave of attacks, terrorists find ways to thwart counter-terrorism defenses. However, for leaders who seek it, there is a simple and cost-effective solution to create lasting peace known in military circles as Invincible Defense Technology (IDT). This method comes from the fields of social sciences and quantum unified field theory -- not from conventional approaches utilizing weaponry, and not from the field of politics. (See: http://www.gusp.org) Although militaries are adopting IDT, unfortunately no concrete action has yet been taken by leaders in other troubled, highly stressed areas. Obviously, current counter-terrorism approaches are…

Proven Approach for Israel Defense Forces

By Dr. David LefflerIsrael again has tightened West Bank security after a series of attacks. As demonstrated by numerous attacks not only in Israel but worldwide, conventional approaches such as those being currently implemented by Israeli security forces will not be effective. They cannot provide an effective defense against future acts of violence, or remove terrorists willing to die for their cause.This weakness refers to all current approaches, with no exception. However, if Israeli military leaders seek it, there is a proven solution. The method comes from the fields of social science and quantum unified field theory -- not from…

Why Continue Being Jewish

By Arkady MamayskyJews constitute only 0.2% of world’s population of 7.4 billion people. And yet anti-Semitism and hatred of the Jews is widespread and continues for centuries despite our honest efforts and dedication to be good citizens of the countries in which we live.So why to continue to be Jewish? (The answer to this question is particularly important in light of the fact that some, especially young, Jews distance themselves from Judaism and Jewishness.) While strongly believing in God, the following is an attempt to give some answers to this question by looking at the Jewish/Hebrew people mainly as an…

Just Come Home Safe

By Valeria Nemaiser Sakhnovitch   This post, which was originally written in Russian, went viral in Israel and around the world. With the author’s permission, it was translated into English by Arkady Mamaysky.Yesterday I witnessed a common scene in Israel: I was standing in line at a supermarket register. In the lane next to mine, a soldier was waiting with a case of water bottles. He was in his field uniform, looking tired and dusty. Obviously, this was not his first day on duty.I live next to the so-called territories and there are many military guards around us. In heat…
