“Remember the law of my servant Moses, the statutes and rules that I commanded him at Horeb for all Israel. “Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the great and awesome day of the Lord comes.

U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman was in Sderot to publicly thank 10 American firefighters. They volunteered to help their Israeli colleagues battle raging fires started by arson kites and balloons sent from Hamas-controlled Gaza. “They have shown the amazing solidarity between the American people and the Israeli people,” said Friedman.
