"Speech Diet" Calls for Only Good Words About Israel


40Days4Israel.com has launched a 40 day "speech diet" in which participants are asked to speak only good things about Israel. "Start channeling your inner Caleb ben Yefuneh," states the projects website, a reference to the Biblical leader who along with Joshua, refused to speak poorly of the Land of Israel. The project is to replicate the 40 days that the 12 scouts took to visit the Land of Israel and bring back their report to Moses. Participants are called to use Facebook, Twitter and one-on-one communication to speak about positive aspects of Israel.
