46:13   I will grant triumph in Tzion to Yisrael, in whom I glory

Elie Wiesel (1928-2016)

In the Bible, the word Tzion often refers to Yerushalayim. Reflecting upon the significance of the holy city, Holocaust survivor and Nobel prize winner Elie Wiesel said, “Jerusalem must remain the world’s Jewish spiritual capital, not a symbol of anguish and bitterness, but a symbol of trust and hope. As the Hasidic master Rebbe Nahman of Bratslav said, ‘Everything in this world has a heart; the heart itself has its own heart.’ Jerusalem is the heart of our heart, the soul of our soul.”

    If ever there was a time when Israel need to remember the words of Eli Wiesel it is today, as fires rage in and around Haifa. Quote – "Jerusalem must remain the world's Jewish Capital, not a symbol of anguish and bitterness, but a symbol of trust and hope" unquote. Through all the troubles that have come upon the Jewish nation and people the words 'a symbol of trust and hope' ring out from heaven, for it is these words that will bring these troubles to an end. Just like in the old days when Hashem heard his people cry out so he will hear today, cry out knowing that Hashem will come and he will bring an end to these hard days, and there will be peace in Jerusalem and in all Israel.
