The State of Israel’s first Sephardic Chief Rabbi,
a giant in Torah, a pursuer of peace and unity,
Rabbi Ben Zion Meir Hai Uziel, z”l,
“PRAY FOR THE STATE OF ISRAEL” Show your support for the State of Israel and Sephardic Customs – Wear WHITE or BLUE Yarmulka (Kippah)
Rabbi Uziel was the quintessential classic Sephardic Haham of the modern era, and his halakhic rulings and spiritual way of life serve as the greatest model of how Classic Sephardic Judaism can be expressed in today’s world.
Rav Uziel, in his own words… On the State of Israel as a fulfillment of Biblical Prophecy
“The first stage to redemption is removing the Jewish people’s subservience to the nations of the world. This messianic stage is taking place before our eyes, as we well know that our past subservience to the nations has caused us great harm, but now, with the return of the Jewish people to their land of Israel and the building of our own state, we are no longer subservient to the nations. Despite all of the dangers we are encountering in realizing this messianic stage, we nevertheless see an awakening of God’s will for the Jewish people to settle in their own homeland. This Divine awakening is what inspired us towards the Declaration of Independence of our own Jewish state. We live in an era where we are witness to the fulfillment and realization of the vision of our prophets.”
AS WE ENTER A NEW YEAR, LET’S FOLLOW THE SEPHARDIC CUSTOM AND RECOGNIZE, SUPPORT AND PRAY FOR THE STATE OF ISRAEL, US AND ISRAEL POLITICAL LEADERS AND THE ISRAELI SOLDIERS THAT PROTECT THE CITIZENS OF ISRAEL.
Proudly display the Flag of the State of Israel in your Synagogue, Community center, Yeshiva and your Home.
This holiday season show support to the Sephardic customs and to the State of Israel, wear WHITE or BLUE Yarmulka (kippah).
Finally lets pray that the merit of this great sage (Rabbi Ben Zion Meir Hai Uziel, z”l) protect us, and may his teachings continue to guide us and inspire us, illuminating our path in Torah and wisdom.
