Judaism: The Temple Institute: Yitzchak and the Jewish State
Rabbi Chaim RichmanRabbi Chaim Richman is the Director of the International Department of The Temple Institute in Jerusalem.
Every newborn baby is a miracle.
Yet the birth of Yitzchak, (Isaac), defied all the rules of reason and biology.
Rather than bow their heads in awe of the enormity of the miracle that G-d wrought, the pundits and gadflies of the day cast doubt upon the veracity of Yitzchak's origins.
Fast-forward to today, replace "Yitzchak" with "the state of Israel" and gain some insight into Israel's contemporary denigrators and their pathetic denial of truth and reality.
