It's the High Holidays again. and we are celebrating by brining in the New Year with inner reflection, hope for the future and appreciation for the sacredness of human life. There are three links in this issue to articles about Rosh Hashanah, with meaningful, important and life-affirming messages for the holiday.
Our latest JLL Letter has a lead article on the implications of the recent Supreme Court decision that struck down Louisiana’s pro-life law: The Unsafe Abortion Protection Act. The National Council of Jewish Women’s newly published “Abortion and Jewish Values Toolkit." We call it a CRUEL kit. This is the most horrific and disturbing booklet we’ve seen from the NCJW. The NCJW's relentless efforts over the years to promote the slaughter of unborn babies from conception up to birth as a ”Jewish value" is outrageous. In “Rabbis Speak Out for Life,” we provide a link to Rabbi Yaakov Menken’s article that completely debunks the progressive Jewish lie that Judaism sanctifies abortion-on-demand.
This is a very challenging time for America. Protests and anarchy continue, statues are being taken down, and police are not allowed to enter restricted zones and maintain order. Since George Floyd was killed, there have been many more deaths and injuries, mostly in cities run by Democrat mayors.
Happy Mother's Day! This issue touches on the attributes of our Matriarchs, a personal story of my Mom, who passed away in 2005, and features our latest pro-life video, and "Rabbis Speak Out for Life."

Pandemic Passover - Coping in a Time of Crisis. Our latest newsletter includes links to our new video, "Rabbis defend life," a list of pregnancy resource centers, and videos that have inspired us with a mindset of hope, faith, healing and freedom during this time of the coronavirus.

The Senate Democrats rejected two bills that would save babies' lives. The Born-Alive Abortion Survivor Protection Act would mandate care for babies that survive abortions. The Pain Capable Unborn Child Act would have banned abortion after five months, when it is proven that the unborn child can feel pain. In his article "Reflections on Abortion & Infanticide from a Jewish Perspective," pro-life columnist Don Feder explains what happens to civilizations that have contempt for human life. Rabbis speak out for Life, and Exodus 21:21-23 - the facts on this verse.
The March For Life was awesome. For the first time, a U.S. President appeared in person to deliver a speech that was a list of his dedication to saving unborn children from death by abortion. In doing so, President Trump validated the pro-life movement and our efforts and was telling us that his administration will continue to work to end abortion. There were other speakers, and this year's theme was "Life Empowers: Pro-life is Pro-Woman." Speakers Melissa Ohden and Claire Culwell gave powerful testimonies of what it is like to survive abortions.

The abortion rate in Israel has been dropping.
We also received breaking news of the terrible verdict handed down by a jury in California against David Daleidon, who exposed the grisly baby body parts trade in a series of videos. The judge, William Orrick III, has ties to Planned Parenthood.
In our Special High Holidays Edition of the JLL Letter, I include my article, "Rosh Hashanah: The Gift of Life, Hope and Renewal All Year. It is so important in these uncertain times we live in to try and find meaning in our lives. I hope the article can do that for our readers. We also have our regular short feature "Rabbis Speak Out on Life," in which we provide a pro-life quote from an eminent rabbi. Finally, we provide details of the gruesome discovery of 2,246 baby body parts stored at the resident of deceased abortionist Ulrich Klopfer. Despite all the abortion horror stories that abound, we can find peace and community during the High Holy Days. We want to wish our Jewish friends and supporters, and everyone, a very SWEET and Happy New Year. Shanah Tovah!
