JEWISH BOOKS FOR
A Spiritual Response To Terror
"It is axiomatic in Jewish thought that the ultimate physical
survival of Israel depends on its spiritual standing."
--Rabbi Nosson Scherman
"The ultimate victory will not be the one
with the most powerful weapons. It will be the one with the most powerful
--Rabbi Simon Jacobson
we ourselves are in rapport with each other, how can we expect Hashem’s world to be whole and peaceful?....We need not always
agree; we need not adopt anyone else's lifestyle, customs dress or speech...But we must learn to respect and to make room in our hearts for each and every one of Avraham Avinu's children....United in love, we can
withstand and conquer the forces of hatred and evil."
“-Be a student of Aaron. Love peace and pursue peace.”
--Hillel (Pirkei Avos 1:11)
"In the back of our minds, we probably all reserve some space
for the possibility that G-D truly runs the world; not kings, presidents, prime
ministers, or terrorists. It is only when we stop vilifying our leaders,
solely blaming our enemies, and worshipping the media…and begin
to look seriously at OURSELVES, that this madness is going to stop.
Nothing else can, or will work. The time has come.
History has shown us time and time again that the true strength of the
Jewish people lies in its relationship with G-D and with each other.
While diplomacy and military power may be tools in our quest for peace, our ultimate success
in achieving this goal can be determined by our thoughts, words and
actions. In the merit of working to create peace within ourselves, friends, families
and communities, we have even greater power to ask G-D to bring about
peace in Israel and the world. In other words, we can help create a
more peaceful world from the inside out.
Jewish Books for Peace distributes free books and other
publications which can empower each of us to strengthen Jewish unity
and identity in our daily life. In doing so, we create a spiritual response
to terrorism and strengthen the role of the Jewish people as a light unto the nations.
You can be part of our mission by helping us to reach more and more people with the power of Jewish wisdom.
