"It is this that has stood up for our forefathers and for us. For it not only one force that has attempted to annihilate us. Indeed, in every generation there are those who arise to destroy us, but the Holy One, Blessed be He, saves us from their hands." (Passover Haggadah).

The Chief Rabbi of South Africa, Rabbi Warren Goldstein, is a graduate of the Beth El Yeshiva, the organization that founded and maintains Arutz Sheva.

In this inspiring message, the rabbi gives us the courage to face the challenges that face the Jewish people.

He reminds us of all the miracles of rebirth that we have seen since the Holocaust - and that what has "stood up for our forefathers and for us" throughout Jewish history  is our standing fast by the Covenant between G-d and Abraham. Renewing it now will allow us to achieve our destiny.
