Walking in Jerusalem and Walking for Jerusalem

This Sunday, the 28th of Iyar, is Yom Yerushalayim and we celebrate the reunification of Jerusalem in 1967. For thousands of years, we prayed to return to our capital, our home, and through the hand of God, we realized our dream. In the years following the Six Day War, Jews worldwide and the nations of the world, recognized the modern miracle. The passion was high. Thousands made aliyah and moved to Israel. Not out of fear but out of pride and destiny.

When I was studying in Israel in 1990, I remember one of my mentors, Rabbi Aaron Rakeffet, our guest this Shavout, sharing with us a perspective on our commitment to Israel. We should not sleep peacefully at night without thinking about our hopes of moving to Israel or doing whatever can to support Israel. Evoking the words of this week's Parsha in which God states we will return to Israel "upright", he told us - "Do not wait until you are running to Israel out of fear but come upright, come with pride and do whatever you can to support her."

Whether the year 1967 or 2015, our gratitude must be deep and our passion for Jerusalem must remain high. 48 years later, do we still "walk for Jerusalem"? Do we sleep fitfully at night or do we ask ourselves what can we do to further the dreams of our people?

One of my most moving memories was celebrating Jerusalem Day in 1986 as we danced from Yeshivat Mercaz Harav Kook until the Western Wall. To this day, I cannot forget singing through the streets of Jerusalem shoulder to shoulder with our nation and the song in my soul as we arrived at the Kotel. For the rest of my life, when I walk the streets of Jerusalem I know I am home.

We are living in historic times. Our actions will determine the future of Israel. Me and You. Visit Israel this summer. Join our mission in August.Click here to learn more

Walk in the Salute to Israel Day Parade.

Advocate for Israel and attend the Policy Conference in Washington DC next year.

Celebrate Yom Yerushalayim this Sunday at shul by attending minyanim at 715 AM and 830 AM. We will recite Hallel in praise of the miracle.

Let us not take the events of 1967 for granted. Let us walk with pride and purpose in Jerusalem and for Jerusalem. As Isaiah proclaimed, "For Zion's sake I will not keep silent, for Jerusalem's sake I will not remain quiet, till her vindication shines out like the dawn, her salvation like a blazing torch."

Wishing you and your families a Shabbat Shalom and Yom Yerushalayim Sameach!
Rabbi Daniel Cohen

Message from Rabbi Cohen about the Israel Day Parade

  • We are blessed to celebrate the gift of Israel at the Salute to Israel Day Parade on May 31st in New York City. I urge everyone to attend as a spectator or march with BCDS. BCDS' spectator spot is east side of 5th between 70-71st. You can sign up by visiting Given the tensions in the world today, it is even more important to show your support.

For more information, please contact me directly. Am Yisrael Chai!

Fairway Update

Thank you to everyone for your constructive suggestions for Fairway. Your voices were heard!

I am happy to announce that in the beginning of June, the kosher butcher will return to the Fairway Market. I am grateful to Fairway management for their reconsideration. We hope with your help, the reopening will be a win win for Fairway and the kosher consumer community.

Here are the details. The butcher and mashgiach will be present three days a week - likely Sunday, Wednesday and Friday. The store will also be reverting back to the original meat supplier Teva and not Shor Habor which is currently being used. Refrigerated rotisserie chickens will be available daily.

I will remain in close contact with company management during the next few months as they evaluate the success of kosher meat market. Please be in touch if you have ongoing suggestions and most importantly, please do your best to support the store in the weeks and months ahead.

G-d willing, together we will insure the growth of kashrut in our community for many years ahead.
