Perhaps we should remember what President’s Day is all about

leave a comment »

Jews in America have an issue when it comes to respecting this country, because for the most part they don’t. American Holidays such as Memorial Day, Flag Day, President’s Day, Thanksgiving, July 4th seem not to be celebrated by many of our fellow Frum Yidden. We find it appalling that a country that has allowed us for over 200 years to celebrate our religion without persecution would not be celebrated more. This President’s Day we feel is more important than others since we as Jews need to open our eyes to the upcoming elections because the candidates that are running have a large connection to the future of this country. Will this country continue to be more liberal? Will Israel still be supported? Will our morals be able to coincide in the country of the free and the country of the brave?Begin to think about this country and the laws that we need to have done in this day in age. Begin to feel the history of this country that has granted us safe (relatively safe at least) harbor during this turbulent and long bleak golus and remember that we shouldn’t be taking the US of A for granted.
