NH4Israel Activities March, 2016

 

With the exception of holiday conflicts and summer break, NH4Israel hosts biweekly talks with refreshments at Manchester’s Temple Israel (TIM) at 6:30PM on alternate Wednesdays.   If other venues and weekdays are scheduled, word of the change will be publicized in advance as well as posted on the calendar of events at NH4Israel.org.  NH4Israel guest speakers generally address current issues surrounding the state of Israel as well as historical analyses of topics such as the Diaspora, Jew-hatred and the making of Israel.

On March 2nd NH4Israel presented a truly remarkable documentary narrated by the author of the book of the same name, “The Prime Ministers”. The film’s narrator is the late Yehuda Avner, diplomat, advisor, and speechwriter to four Israeli Prime Ministers: Levi Eshkol, Golda Meir, Yitzhak Rabin and Menachem Begin. Yehuda Avner was there in the background at history-making moments of Israel and its Prime Ministers.

The documentary takes the audience through some familiar territory of Israel’s continuous fight to stay alive as a nation: the 1948 war; the 1956 war; the 1967 war; the Yom Kippur War; the Intifadas; the Gaza Wars and many far-flung terrorist incidents from Munich to Entebbe in between. The remarkable difference with this documentary is the side stories that are less well known. For example, as Ambassador to the USA, Yitzhak Rabin had more access to Nixon and Kissinger than Israel’s Foreign and Prime Ministers. One of Golda Meir’s first assignments was to return to the USA in 1948 to collect funds to help arm her new struggling nation. And thereafter became the first Israeli Ambassador to Moscow, where she flew in the face of official Soviet policy of atheism for all and set about getting huge numbers of worshippers in attendance at the Moscow’s Grand Synagogue. And she was a secular Jew! It was Golda Meir who started the “Let My People Go”/Free Soviet Jewry movement from her time in Moscow. The documentary is replete with little-know factoids surrounding each Prime Minister that Yehuda Avner advised.  If you did not attend the showing with NH4Israel, you may view this documentary at Netflix and Amazon Watch.

On March 16th, NH4Israel viewed and discussed another documentary, “Beneath the Helmet: From High School to the Home Front”, which follows the lives of 5 young Israelis from before their induction into the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) throughout their basic training and assignment as bona fide soldiers. One can say that it is a coming of age story – how each grew by undergoing a demanding and inspirational transformation from adolescence into a team of learning mutual dependence in to achieve a military mission. One particularly inspiring story within the larger narrative was the financial support the team gave to one of its own who, as the young Ethiopian-Israeli breadwinner for his family, faced a nearly impossible situation to continue as the “man of the house” while earning the pay of a recruit.   His fellow paratrooper recruits came to his aid with “flying colors”.

Although you may have missed the ambiance of viewing and discussing “Beneath the Helmet” with NH4Israel, you might consider making popcorn and sit down to enjoy this movie in your living room. It is available on demand at Netflix or for $2.99 at http://films.jerusalemu.org/

More lectures and other educational films on Israel are planned for the 2016 season. Find out more and sign up for email updates at NH4Israel.org.

NH4Israel Activities – Febuary, 2016

With the exception of holiday conflicts and summer break, NH4Israel hosts biweekly talks with refreshments at Manchester’s Temple Israel (TIM) at 6:30PM on alternate Wednesdays.   If other venues and weekdays are scheduled, word of the change will be publicized in advance as well as posted on the calendar of events at NH4Israel.org.  NH4Israel guest speakers generally address current issues surrounding the state of Israel as well as historical analyses of topics such as the Diaspora, Jew-hatred and the making of Israel.

On February 3rd NH4Israel hosted David Hunt of Merrimack, who is on the Governing Board of Connections Israel (CI). CI is a designated 501c3 charity which is like similar organizations whose purpose is to provide morale and holiday gifts, especially food, to the IDF. Friends of the IDF is perhaps the most well known of these charities. However, the REALLY BIG difference between CI and others is that CI aligns an individual unit of the IDF with donors. In other words, CI allows a donor such as David Hunt to,say, “adopt a crew” of an IDF fighting ship, rather than IDF soldiers, sailors, and airmen in general. Also, “lone soldiers” (those young men and women of the Jewish Diaspora who have no immediate family in Israel) in non-sponsored IDF units are singled out for reception of CI’s “Care Packages”.

In addition to food packages, CI sponsors Purim and Chanukah parties as well as meals on other Jewish holidays. All deliveries are by local Israeli volunteers. A separate division, the Jerusalem Project, handles “unit adoptions” and distributions within the confines of Jerusalem.

CI prides itself on taking personal care of CI’s donors who visit Israel. CI tourists will be able to go to their partnered unit to have a meal with the crew and likely have a demonstration of their military equipment. A good deal for all is to be had. For more information, please contact David Hunt at Email: davidhunt@outdrs.net or for more general information and video links of CI interacting with the IDF, go to http://connectionsisrael.com/.

NH4Israel carpooled to Brandeis University for the second meeting in February to hear Dr. Mordechai Kedar address the students and the public. Dr. Kedar is a professor at Bar Elan University who spent 25 years in the Israeli Intelligence Service. Dr. Kedar covered the current geopolitics of the area and took his audience through the ethnic and religious makeup of Syria, Lebanon, Iraq and Jordan and showed how these countries drawn up by the French and British after their victory over the Ottoman Empire following WWI, are an ethic, religious, and tribal mish-mash. Curiously, the British mandate for Palestine consisted of land to the east and west of the Jordan River. The portion of mandate Palestine to the west of the Jordan River and its sources curiously comes close to the land boundaries given Israel in Numbers/Parsha Masei 34.

Dr. Kedar believes that Arab unity in today’s Arab conflict areas might be a long time coming. The essence of his talk is captured on a JBS video of another talk on his 2016 winter speaking tour. The site is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4sE1F27ea38

NH4Israel Activities – January, 2016

 

With the exception of holiday conflicts and summer break, NH4Israel hosts biweekly talks with refreshments at Manchester’s Temple Israel (TIM) at 6:30PM on alternate Wednesdays.   If other venues and weekdays are scheduled, word of the change will be publicized in advance as well as posted on the calendar of events at NH4Israel.org.  NH4Israel guest speakers generally address current issues surrounding the state of Israel as well as historical analyses of topics such as the Diaspora, Jew-hatred and the making of Israel.

On January 6th, Emil Campeanu, an Israeli member of NH4Israel, presented “The Ingathering”, Part II of the multipart Tkuma series on the rebirth of Israel and its first 50 years. The segment covered the return of the Jews in the Diaspora from 1948 to 1998 when the country counted some 6.5 million Jews and 1.8 million Arabs. The greatest periods of immigration were the period immediately following WWII and a second big wave following Israel’s rebirth.   The former were survivors of the Holocaust; the latter were evicted from Mohammedan countries following Israel’s independence. Particularly gripping was the plight of the Yemeni Jews who trekked on foot through the desert via Saudi Arabia suffering many casualties along the way. This led to Israel’s first massive airlift, “Operation Magic Carpet” lifting Diaspora Jews from Yemen back to the land of their forefathers’ forefathers.

Israeli airlifts also brought back entire communities of Ethiopian Jews. Despite the fact that Israel’s immigrants were Jews one and all, multiculturalism took some wrestling with Jacobs descendents to be called one Israel. Those who came from European cultures might have thought themselves “more cultured” than their north African and Middle East brethren, but those Sephardic Jews who for generations lived in the Holy Land. Well, they knew better.

The documentary narrates in detail Israel’s housing (and water, sewage and utility) shortage for the new immigrants. Yet the newcomers did not look back; they knew life would be uphill from these beginnings. Most importantly – regardless of their material quality of life; in Israel they felt safe.

On the 20th, Emil hosted the Tkuma portion on the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). The IDF is truly a “peoples’ army” since both males and females are conscripted; males for 36 months, females for 21. Israel is the only country that conscripts its young women. The Israeli military moreover is based on the small conscripted force with reserve forces (of those who completed their service). Their small force of younger soldiers has proven to be up to the job of defending the country if there is no invasion. And Israel was first to use small elite units to attack as uniformed commandos. This proved highly effective in taking the battles across the “Green Line” in the form of raids.   The commando’s commander, young Ariel Sharon, chose the number 101st for the commando unit in order to make Arab armies think there might be one hundred more such indefatigable units.

The viewer becomes a true spectator during the coverage of the rest of Israel’s battles of the twentieth century as the technology of battlefield cinematography advanced. Footage moved from shades of grey to color to make Israel’s many wars seem so real. Every decade saw struggle. There was the Suez Crisis in the fifties. The sixties brought the successes of the 1967 Six-Day War – only to be cemented with near defeat at one point in the Yom Kippur War.of 1973. The seventies saw massacres by Israel’s enemies at European airports and the Munich Olympic Games. Hijackings did not always end like the successful Entebbe raid of 1976. The eighties saw the war with Lebanon and the destruction of the Iraq’s nuclear program. And the nineties saw Israel suffer from Iraqi scud missiles, which miraculously saw one casualty, and that was from a heart attack caused indirectly from missiles.

More lectures on the Tkuma series and other educational films on Israel are planned for the 2016 season. Find out more and sign up for email updates at NH4Israel.org.

NH4Israel mourns the loss of Dr. Julianne Cooper

Dr.cooper

NH4Israel mourns the loss of Dr. Julianne Cooper who spoke at one of our meetings on “America and Israel: America Does Not Make Sense Without Israel”.

Dr. Julianne S. Cooper-Reeder Obituary

HOOKSETT – Julianne S. Cooper-Reeder, Ph.D, 69, of Hooksett, passed Feb. 14, 2016, surrounded by her loving family after a courageous two-year battle with pancreatic cancer.

Born in Wilmington, Del., on Feb. 3, 1947, she was the daughter of Thomas and Rosamond (Taylor) Siudowski. She was the founder of one of New England’s most creative and successful advertising and marketing agencies in the mid 1970s into the late 1980s. She later pursued a master’s degree in medieval history, followed by a duel Ph.D. in early modern American and European history at the University of New Hampshire, and finally a master’s in divinity at Harvard.

After decades of success in teaching at the university level, she co-founded with her husband Liberty Harbor Academy, acting as both president and a full-time faculty member. She was a regular guest on many local talk radio shows, speaking on a variety of subjects from education, politics, history and religion.

She was an avid researcher and accomplished writer, having published many academic articles. Her autobiography, “Who Promised You a Rose Garden” was written while fighting the disease and published in August of 2015. She loved reading, intellectual/philosophical/historical discussions and political thought.

Julianne enjoyed traveling to and vacationing near sites of historical significance and museums. Included in those travels were students on field trips to Boston, New York City, Washington, D.C., and the many important sites of Virginia. She was a patriot, a devoted Christian who practiced her faith with grace and humility. Full of love and spirit, Julianne simply exuded an inner beauty equal to her outer loveliness and gave of herself inspiring family, friends, colleagues and students in ways that will ripple for generations.

Above all else, she will be remembered as a loving and devoted wife, mother and grandmother who cherished time spent with family.

She leaves behind her loving husband, Mark Reeder of Hooksett; her beautiful daughter Alexandra Lin, a dedicated son-in-law, George Lin, M.D., of Florida; and three remarkable and loving grandchildren: granddaughter MacKenzie and two grandsons, Carter and Gardiner. They were and will always be her pride and joy.

SERVICES: Calling hours at Lambert Funeral Home & Crematory, 1799 Elm St., corner of North Street, Manchester, will be Monday, Feb. 22, from 4 to 7 p.m. A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated on Tuesday, Feb. 23, at noon, in St. Marie Church, 378 Notre Dame Ave., Manchester, NH 03102. Burial will be in her family cemetery lot in Virginia at a later date.

Donations may be made in her memory to either St. Marie Parish, 133 Wayne St., Manchester, NH 03102; to Catholic Charities of New Hampshire, 325 Franklin St., Manchester, NH 03101; or to the Birch Hill Terrace Benevolent Fund, 200 Alliance Way, Manchester, NH 03102.

NH4Israel Activities, December 2015

With the exception of holiday conflicts and summer break, NH4Israel hosts biweekly talks with refreshments at Manchester’s Temple Israel (TIM) at 6:30PM on alternate Wednesdays.   If other venues and weekdays are scheduled, word of the change will be publicized in advance as well as posted on the calendar of events at NH4Israel.org.  NH4Israel guest speakers generally address current issues surrounding the state of Israel as well as historical analyses of topics such as the Diaspora, Jew-hatred and the making of Israel.

On December 9th NH4Israel hosted internationally acclaimed producer and director Gloria Greenfield. She is the founder of documentary company with a mission statement contained within its very name, Doc Emet Productions, Inc. She began her talk commenting how special it was to be talking at the Temple during Chanukah, a time when Jews are reminded of the courage and determination of their forefathers who partnered with G0D to defeat the enemies of Israel. And Gloria’s documentaries are her effort to ensure the current struggles of the Jewish state to survive are written both in the memory of the documentary viewers, and the digital media used to tell Israel’s story.

Gloria talked in depth about her film, “The Case for Israel” – whose them is Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state.   She made the point that the “conflict” over the Temple Mount began in 1929, when the Mufti of Jerusalem, the infamous Nazi propagandist and uncle of Egyptian Yassir Arafat, spread the rumor that the Jews were about to build a 3rd Temple on the Temple Mount. Some four score and seven years later, one can see how far the Mohammedan narrative has come. In coverage of the anniversary of the 1929 massacre, the Jerusalem Post writes, “Spurred by rumors of an impending takeover of Al-Aksa Mosque, a mob slaughtered 63 Jews while over 400 were saved by local Arab families.”

Gloria then went on to explain that her next endeavor, “Unmasked – Judeopphobia”, examined the connection between Jew-hatred and anti-Israel sentiment. A point she made was that the correct term for Jews to use “Jew hatred” rather than anti-Semitism, a late 1800s term coined by a Jew-hater. Her last production, “Body and Soul”, demonstrates without a doubt the relationship (that Mohammedan history revisionists/erasers and destroyers of antiquities deny) of Jews’ and Christians’ to Jerusalem and the territorial land of Israel delineated in the book of Numbers. Gloria reminded her audience that Communist China erased much of its Confucian past in order to discredit past Chinese societies while touting its current ideology. To ensure “correct thought”, the past has to be torn down by the totalitarians as they rewrite history.

More lectures and educational films on Israel are planned for the 2016 season. Find out more and sign up for email updates at NH4Israel.org.
