My Israel Is Hope

IFCJ

While Israel still fights terror every day - and all those who don't support the Jewish state - The Times of Israel writer Sarah Tuttle-Singer tells us all the reasons why she has hope for Israel. She can see the resilience in the hearts and lives of so many living in her community:

My blossoming, resilient, compassionate, progressive, brave Israel.

My Israel are the Rabbis for Human Rights who cross checkpoints to plant olive trees.

And the young woman who owns the flower shop on Dizengoff, and donates flowers to the funerals of terror victims.

And boys and girls who plant trees on Tu Bishvat, hoping one day they will use the branches for their own wedding canopies.

And an old woman who plants a seed deep into the earth, to grow a fig tree she’ll never see beyond a dark green shoot — and that’s only if she’s lucky. But she plants it anyway because one day her granddaughter will have a granddaughter and she will gather figs and taste how sweet it is.
