Israel Chesed Opportunities
"Shiloh, home of the Mishkan for 369 yrs. Connecting with my brothers and sisters!"
29 Tishrei 5774/October 3, 2013
For years I have said that I feared that the Doors of Aliyah* were closing and that all Jews choosing to live Hutz L'Aretz (outside of Israel) should make Aliyah now.
I was not being Prophetic, I was just doing what the Sages have told us to do: Ro'eh es ha nolad. "Look at the outcome."
So now President BO is playing chicken with the Republicans in Congress holding the budget as hostage. This has frozen the US Government. A direct result has been that 800,000 of the 1.4 million government workers have been sent home without pay. Keep in mind that a fair number of Jews are employed by the US Government.
Another result is that Government spending is on hold, so any number of businesses that supply goods or services to the US Government are now slowing or shutting operations. So there are less goods being shipped, so less need for truckers etc.
So this has consumers spending less since that is what happens whenever there is a blow to the economy. Property values will decrease. It will be even harder to sell real estate so that one can pay of their mortgages.
Another result of a shutdown US Government is that routine passport applications are not being processed. This will have a direct effect on the ability of any Jews looking to make Aliyah. No passport? Can't leave the US.
Brothers, sisters, get the message: THE GATES OF ALIYAH ARE CLOSING. Please come home immediately.
*Aliyah - Heb.: "ascending," Jewish immigration to Israel
