It is with great sorrow that we share the news of the passing of Mrs. Carol Kosman, wife of Rabbi Moshe Kosman zt"l (of blessed memory). Mrs. Kosman was one of the founders of Shoresh and was a pillar in the Frederick Jewish community for over 50 years. She taught a large portion of our alumni in Hebrew school. Her legacy was tremendous. She will be greatly missed. Condolences to all the Kosman children. Due to Corona and Pesach, the funeral will be graveside with just 10 men and shiva ends tomorrow afternoon (with no real shiva house gatherings.) May her memory be for a blessing.

SHORESH TTC ISRAEL TRIP - Day 8
Woke up early to have our last shachris at the Kotel. From there we broke up into 3 groups for our first Yom Chesed volunteer project. One group packed packages for the poor at Yad Eliezer. One group assembled crutches for the medical volunteer organization Yad Sarah. The third group went to the One Family Fund and wrote letters to victims of terror. There was a quick stop at the site of our Bus 19 bombing. From there we visited our forefathers and foremothers at the Maras Hamachpelah (Cave of the Patriarchs.) In the afternoon we went to a counter terrorism training session at Caliber 3. We ended the trip with a closing ceremony hosted by Meir & Sarah Raskas. It was an amazing 8 days in Israel! We'll be back to the US tomorrow with great memories and looking forward to the next trip in three years.

Hope everyone had an A-MAZ-ING Summer! #futureShoreshcamper
Best wishes to Camp Shoresh and all the staff for a fantastic summer and great success. And of course - hope you all enjoy !
https://youtu.be/fSPJuXseF6Q Camp starts tomorrow! We can’t wait to see you!!
Thank you Camp Shoresh for an amazing summer - an experience my daughter will never forget and friendships made for a lifetime. All three of my kids have now graduated from being Shoresh campers - we are part of the Shoresh family forever !!
By the Grace of G-d The Auspicious Day of 28 Sivan 5777 6/22/17 AN OPEN LETTER TO PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP Honorable President Trump, This letter is to petition you for righteous judgement in your treatment of the Arab-Israeli conflict as it relates to the Jews of the Holy Land who reside in Judea and Samaria. For eight years, Barack Obama and Mahmoud Abbas – a modern-day iteration of the Hitler-Mufti alliance – collaborated to effect a freeze on Jewish settlement while unregulated, illegal Arab construction continued at an alarming clip in these reclaimed territories that have constituted the heart of Biblical Israel and the hub of Jewish sovereignty since the Holy Land was bequeathed by G-d to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and their descendants over 3,000 years ago. Needless to say, Obama and Abbas could not have succeeded without their “Baby” – a gutless traitor who routinely blindsides the Israeli public and manipulates them with lies, spins and underhanded maneuvers as he sails them down the river in the best tradition of his pre-statehood Zionist forebears who, like him, consorted with Hitler, the Mufti and One World Government gangbanksters. In the short space of time since you were elected president, you’ve proven yourself a noble and courageous public servant in your pursuit of justice both for the citizens of America and those in countries across the globe. With single-minded determination you’ve countered Obama’s sick, radical left agenda by, among other things, advancing legislation that would trash and replace its various components. The struggle with Obama and his globalist cabal is not a tango-like game of compromise – it’s an arm wrestling match where victory and defeat are a binary choice that is raw, absolute and unforgiving in its finality. Your success as a statesman and as a warrior hinges on an awareness of this fact which, judging by the character of your leadership thus far, you obviously possess. What must be equally clear, is that a major component of Obama’s Old World Order agenda is the plan for Israel’s destruction, G-d forbid, premised on disenfranchising its Jewish citizens by stripping them of their land, giving it to the Arab enemy within and herding them into cities, ghetto-style. As the history of the Jews in Nazi Europe has taught us, that’s the last stop before annihilation. Make no mistake: The global arm wrestling match spans the seven continents, but its fulcrum rests smack center in Israel. Attempting to ignore this fact and address the Arab-Israeli conflict with devious aphorisms and platitudes, as your predecessors did, would be like confronting fake news or any other tentacle of the radical left medusa with an arsenal of petunias in a flower basket. When Obama took office, he ramped up the war on Israel and set a deadly trend into motion that banned Jewish construction in Judea and Samaria while giving the Arabs a free pass to build wherever they wanted. Eight years later, the back of Israel’s hand is almost on the table. A little more pressure – nay, no pressure, just time and a steady grip on Baby’s atrophied hand – and the Jewish state will be nothing but a memory. Baby’s favorite book is Henry Kissinger’s World Order; Kissinger has stated: “In ten years, there will be no more Israel” (quote publicized in 2012). For these wicked men Israel’s carefully crafted doom is non-negotiable. To grab the nail and put it in their own coffin, it’s necessary not just to arrest the trend of land concession in Israel but adhere to the muscle matrix and REVERSE THE TREND by following the path of Obama’s own trajectory IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION, measure for measure. Obama’s plan banned Jewish settlement construction in Judea and Samaria; President Trump’s plan will give carte blanche for unlimited Jewish construction in Judea and Samaria. Obama’s plan gave carte blanche for unlimited Arab construction in Judea and Samaria; President Trump’s plan will ban Arab construction in Judea and Samaria and take all the government funding earmarked for leftist watchdog groups to purchase jeeps, binoculars and hidden cameras to monitor settlement activity, and give it to conservative, nationalist entities to monitor illegal Arab construction. The radical left has to feel the squeeze that the settlers have felt for eight years. It’s the only language they understand. *** The numerical value of the Hebrew letters that comprise the name “D J Trump” (ד ג' טראמפ) is equal to that of the word “Purim” (פורים) – the holiday that commemorates the defeat of the wicked Persian minister Haman who had enacted a decree to annihilate the Jewish people which culminated in his own execution and the Jewish people’s triumph over their enemies. What’s more, the numerical value of the Hebrew letters that comprise the name “Donald Trump” (דונלד טראמפ) is equal to the name “Messiah Son of David” (משיח בן דוד). Our Sages of blessed memory teach that a spark of the Messiah resides in every Jew and in every Righteous Gentile who seeks truth and justice for the Jewish people; that the harder one works for their benefit, the greater the intensity with which that spark glows and is revealed. The fact that your name is tied to Purim and the Messiah in such a rare and unique way means that you have enormous potential to help the Jewish people. It means that you’re a Divinely-empowered figure in the Purim story playing out in Israel, which now, as in Biblical times, turns on the theme of REVERSAL in ways wondrous and profound. It means that you have the capacity to shield the Jewish people from harm, protect their land and safeguard their Torah observance upon which the entire world stands and is sustained – and, in so doing, lead the world into the Era of Messiah and Redemption in the most literal, actual sense. Every action you take towards the welfare of the Jewish people reveals the spark of Messiah within you and defines with increasing clarity the Divine mission that G-d has chosen you to carry out. Of the Messiah the Bible states: “And with righteousness shall he judge the poor.” In 2005, the Israeli government dismantled twenty-one settlements and expelled 8,600 Jews from their homes in Gush Katif so that Gaza could arm itself with long-range ballistic missiles and advanced weaponry, and become the militarily independent Iranian terrorist base that it is today. In Judea and Samaria too, settlements or parts of them have been evacuated and bulldozed, such as Amona, Migron and the Ulpena buildings in Beit El, all on Baby’s watch. The victims of these expulsions and those whose homes are on the butcher block are poor not just in the sense of having been used as political bargaining chips in backroom deals, but in that they have no lobby anywhere in the world to protest their abuse and demand that it is not repeated, except for opportunists and self-interest groups that use the settlement cause to advance themselves politically. Their political isolation has made them especially vulnerable non-entities in the One World hierarchy which has marked them as an easy target and persecutes them relentlessly. Indeed, the settlers of Judea and Samaria are poor in every respect except one: they have an advocate for fairness, justice and freedom who occupies the highest office in America, for whom governance is not the goal but the means towards an end that benefits everyone; for whom the presidency is not a cash cow but a vehicle to ensure that democratic values are held sacred and every constitutional right enforced for the citizens of America and beyond. In you, President Trump, the settlers have a judge whose absolute, unwavering commitment to justice will reach them. In that sense they’re rich and the future is bright, for them and for all of us. Long live our Master, the Great Rebbe of Lubavitch King Messiah, forever! Rabbi Shaul Elkeslasi Chabad House of Pike County, Port Jervis & Deerpark
