    For a country with its back up against the wall, buffeted by danger and beset with hostility, the need to reach upward and outward beyond ourselves has never been more acute.

    Indeed. And yet despite the increasing danger that Israelis are in as a result of the Gaza withdrawal and despite the Israeli Government’s near-abuse of the Gaza evacuees, it appears that no Orthodox Jewish group is willing to speak against the Israeli government’s current policy.

    Prayer is welcome and necessary (the people taking part in this intiative are to be commended). But taking a stand here on Earth is also necessary. One would have thought that the destruction of the Gaza synagogues–places of prayer of the type that Prayer Shield is sponsoring–would have been a sufficient foothold to allow the OU or the Agudah to speak out. Yet it wasn’t. Why?

    I think that Mr. Freund is correct. Although we are required to engage in hishtadlut, ultimately we place our trust in Him.

    Ahron: Because it’s none of their business? Because nothing they say could change anything, and likely hurt any good they might do elsewhere?
