In light of special commemoration days in our calendar - Yom Hashoah (Holocaust remembrance), Yom Hazikaron (remembrance of Israeli fallen
soldiers and terror victims) and Yom Haatzmaut (Israel Independence Day) - Elan feels strongly that three groups of people deserve our
unmitigated and unqualified Derech Eretz and respect. Check out who these 3 groups are, and see if you agree, especially the last one.
God bless the State of Israel, and all who feel she is a blessing to the world. Happy 64th, Eretz Yisrael!!
