What do a bride on her wedding day and Sapir Sabah do do at the mother's vigil?
On Wednesday, activity in the tent of the vigil with the motto "The Mothers say YES to Israeli Sovereignty over Judea, Samaria and the Jordan Valley" continued to gain momentum. Many public figures came to the tent today as well. Mothers from throughout the land came to express solidarity.
The surprise of the day was when Sapir Sabah arrived with her mother Nurit directly from the Knesset. Sapir displays leadership ability. She does not accept the results of the hearing for her teacher of Jewish Philosophy, who criticized the IDF and its soldiers saying that our army is not ethical and that this land is not ours. "I would give up if he was sorry and had expressed regret, but he continues his incitement".
Next came Rebbetzin Shani Taragin, who, in honor of the month of Adar, brought biblical references to sovereignty from the Scroll of Esther, from the passage "Each person rules in his house". The passage implies that the People of Israel must be sovereign in its Land. The lesson ended with the connection between Joshua's conquest and Purim. Just as the Holy One, blessed be He, aided Joshua in girding himself to be courageous, so the Holy One, blessed be He, will help if we make an effort and take initiative.
There was a surprise awaiting MK Moti Yogev of the Bayit HaYehudi (Jewish Home) party after he finished his words of blessing and solidarity to the organizers, and spoke about the importance of applying sovereignty over the entire Land of Israel. A bride in a white dress came to the tent, who wanted to enter the wedding canopy only after having done a deed for the national home, before building her private home.
The bride is Efrat Leshem, the granddaughter of the Ganiram family, who are among the founders of communities in Hebron and the Golan Heights.
If, even on the day of her wedding, a bride sees fit to take part in the national struggle, then the People of Israel will surely be victorious.
During the evening Yochai Dimri, the new, energetic head of the Council of South Hebron came to the tent, as well as MK Moshe Feiglin, Rebbetzin Lior, Rabbi Yisrael Dorminetzer from the Jordan Valley with his family, Rabbi Haim Greenspan and Sarah Eliash.
The vigil, organized by Women in Green in cooperation with Matot Arim and Professors for a Strong Israel, continues on Thursday, Friday and Sunday.
