Learn why the drug cartel and terrorists support the BDSM

Victoria made the decision to finally move. How could such a good neighborhood get caught up in drugs? Why weren’t the police doing enough to apprehend those distributing drugs to minors? Victoria saw what was happening long before most and was successful for a time in setting up a task force of community oriented people to address the growing fear that drugs and crime were quickly seeping in. They approached the police and efforts were made for a time. Clemen suggested to the committee to look at studies and articles about success and failures of other communities who faced similar threats. It was at that point that things went cold. The police were no longer interested.

But here is part of the story that was never told.

This particular police precinct supports the BDSM against only the State of Israel and the Jewish people. When Clemen along with his neighbors presented the police department with their suggestions it included technology and know-how from Israeli police and tactical squads and Israeli start ups. This was not an option. From that point onwards the police broke all contact with these caring and concerned citizens. As far as the police chief was concerned, better to loose a community to drugs and crime then recognize the State of Israel.

We now begin to see the effects of the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions against only Israel and the Jewish people. Good citizens were denied a better quality of life because of hatred.

Make to mistake, the Jewish people and the State of Israel suffer from the effects of the BDSM but so do you!

And guess what, your hatred hasn’t helped the Palestinian people.

A Kind Word

I remember a German woman who asked at the end of Shabbat if she could call her mother in Germany. She had arrived on Friday night and was so moved that she decided to return for Shabbat lunch and seudah shlishi (third meal of Shabbat) It was urgent! Of course the Machlis family was happy to oblige. After the usual pleasantries with her mother, this woman in her mid forties asked her mother if she was Jewish? The silence that hennyfollowed told volumes. Her mother, in her late 80’s had hoped to take this secret to her grave. I’m not sure what happened to this woman. But this woman met Harav Machlis like he meets many of his guests, on his walk from his home in Maalot Dafna to the Western Wall each Shabbat morning where he leads a prayer service for the late comers and stragglers. He loves to greet visitors from abroad. He says it makes an impression. “Israel and the Jewish people are unique and people visiting should understand  that we value people.” Many times he finds this guests in the Arab market. Bnai Brith trips or families on vacation shopping in the Arab market. His sincerity and kindness speak volumes in that simple, Shalom. Most often he will invite these strangers for prayer services followed by lunch at his home. It’s that simple interaction that opens peoples eyes and minds. To get an invitation in a foreign country for lunch sparks curiosity and has led many people to follow. If that’s not enough, Jeff Siedel of the Jewish Student Center in the Old City usually has a nice group of stragglers waiting to go back with Harav Machlis to his home for lunch. Sometimes one or two and sometimes ten and
twenty. And for close to three decades, Henny was there to welcome each guest. For many people, its their first real experience to learn about Judaism, religion, God, Shabbat and even about oneself. The openness of their home and the ability to interact, learn and enjoy a sumptuous meal is unparalleled. Henny understood what a home could be. She just turned it into a small Temple where one could experience the Shabbat delight and a true closeness to God and his or her fellow human. Henny created a home that allowed true genuine spiritual growth.

May her memory be a blessing for all!
