Unperturbed by the Challenges

The status of the Jewish people in exile is compared to that of being sold into slavery to non-Jewish masters [see Esther 7:4].  In such a difficult situation a Jew may argue: ''How can I possibly keep all the mitzvot when I have to live in a predominantly non-Jewish world?''

Nevertheless, just like the Jewish slave is required to keep all the mitzvot even in the house of his non-Jewish master, likewise, the Jewish people have been given the strength from G-d not to be perturbed by the challenges of the non-Jewish world, and to observe all of the mitzvot with pride.

People read the latest comments, so they will see this. If you wish to donate, please go to Get Rav Eliezer Berlands voice heard
I don't really understand what the donations are paying for? His legal costs? yes I believe he is innocent, but I also heard he is being extradited back to Israel.

Taken From The Link,

Rabbi Eliezer Berland, leader of tens of thousands in Israel for the past 50 years, is faced by strong Government forces who are trying to silent him.

Let the true story be heard.

At Shuvu Banim International a team of volunteers are working endlessly to publicly release the truth about the Rabbi. Up against mass media who propagate and inflate the accusations of a few vengeful individuals, the people at Shuvu Banim International want to make the voice of the masses heard.

There are many tremendous expenses involved in gathering the original material, in video, audio and print, editing it for the Hebrew website, and then translating it for the English website and printed journals distributed globally. Only your donation will help.
