A Love Letter

Dearest Israel,

Happy 58th Birthday! I want you to know that despite what you may think, there are many people out there who do love you so very much. We are so proud of what you have achieved and how you keep on pushing the boundaries of science, medicine and technology.

We salute your efforts to further the cause of peace, despite the lack of anyone tangible to make shalom with.

We glow with pride as we wonder in amazement, as to how you are once again a home for the Jewish Nation, who have suffered so cruelly over the last two thousand years. Your learning institutions bristle with the sweet sound of Torah being disseminated to so many individuals, who are thirsty to extend their ever expanding knowledge of our intricate and fascinating ancient texts.

Finally, you are the conduit to our everlasting capital, Jerusalem and it is to you that we face every day as we send our prayers to the Almighty.

Happy Birthday Israel.

We love you so very very much.
