*JDL* Parsha & Weekly Update – Week of August 19-25, 2012

Parshah Shoftim – Deuteronomy 16:18-21:9
Torah Reading for Week of August 19-25, 2012 – Elul 1-7 5772

===============

“Judges and officers shall you make for yourselves in all your gates, which HaShem your G-d gives you for your tribes, and they shall judge the people with righteous judgement.” [Dev. 16:18]

The legal system set out in the Torah provides for both judgement and enforcement, and even more, makes the enforcement a central part of the process — “and they shall judge” seems to refer to the officers as well as the judges. In addition, this commandment is given to all of Israel, rather than to a select group of leaders. How do we understand this? What can each of us do to set up judges, and even more, establish police? The answer, perhaps, lies in a deeper analysis of this obligation: within ourselves, we each must judge and police our own behavior.

As the Shla”h HaKadosh writes, the Sefer Yetzirah says that there are seven gates into a person. What are these seven “gates?” Two eyes, two ears, two nostrils, and one mouth — these are the gates, through which outside influences come into our bodies. The verse tells us to make judges and officers, to ensure that what comes in through our gates is not the bad but the good.

Take a good look at our current leadership today.  A destroy Israel rally is held at Queen’s Park and our current Jewish leaders refuse to confront this clear and present threat.  To those who argue that the threat was on Shabbat; all I can say is arrangements can be made, there was enough proper notice.  The Jewish Defence League once again gave our community strong leadership.

The Jewish Defence League will continue to lead the fight against the clear and present threat that intends to harm us.  The JDL will always confront and expose antisemitism.  We will not sit idly by in our offices sending out weak press releases.  The JDL gets the job done and good people throughout the world have taken notice and follow our example. 

On September 11,

We will be joined by many freedom loving Canadians that oppose the possible return of Omar Khadr to Canada. 
Please mark your calendar. 

 

 

Thank you to all our supporters that march with us. 

 

With Love of Israel,
