100th Anniversary of the Balfour Declaration

November 2, 2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration. For the first time in 2 millennia, a powerful empire publicly declared its support for the restoration of Jewish national home in Palestine.

A very short, carefully worded note after 2 millennia of homelessness, short periods of prosperity always laved with rivers of Jewish blood...

In the words of Caroline Glick, "The Balfour Declaration didn’t change the way non-Jews felt about the Jews. It empowered the Jews to change their fate." Suddenly, a miraculous glimmer of hope that our dream of returning to Zion could become a reality...

As long as within our hearts
The Jewish soul sings,
As long as forward to the East
To Zion, looks the eye –

Our hope is not yet lost,
It is two thousand years old,
To be a free people in our land
The land of Zion and Jerusalem.
