New Mexico Jewish Federation ^ | 11/05/19 | Rob Lennick

Shalom Friends,

This past week the Jewish community of New Mexico was honored with a visit by the Israeli Ambassador to the United States, His Excellency, Ron Dermer. Ambassador Dermer spoke to our community in the most passionate and intelligent terms about modern day Israel. Everyone in attendance was truly awed by his cogent and heartfelt talk in which he shared much more than a canned speech. He spoke from the heart and shared in a very candid manner, the tachlis, the essence, right now, regarding Israel.

This is especially poignant in our time when there are many competing narratives about Israel, the Palestinians, the Israeli

government’s positions on a variety of domestic issues and international relations. Sadly, some segments of the American Jewish community are no longer talking with each other. In addition, the BDS movement, which is nothing but a veil for antisemitism, has misled some members of the Jewish community to become witting and unwitting supporters.

In this environment of fracture, Ambassador Dermer gave a compelling call for unity, and a return to the basic, historical love of Israel that has been a mainstay of Jewish consciousness from time immemorial. His message felt transcendent and timeless.

“He spoke from the heart..”

Falls on deaf ears to the New Mexico democrat majority.

There are actually Jews in New Mexico? Who knew?
Maybe they should start a movement to put up little Jewish stars on the sides of the highways for Jews who have died in traffic accidents, instead of just the crosses.

Some segments of the Jewish community no longer talking to one another? This is news???

Sadly, some Jews thought BDS was short for Buy Danish Sale and could not pass up up some good eats.

Seriously, I am glad that there are some Jews in New Mexico.

The Bible includes both the Jews and the Christians

There are many Jews for Jesus

Regardless the Torah or old testament hold tremendous wisdom for mankind

I lived near Abiquiu from the late 50’s to 1970 and there were Jews in Santa Fe and Los Alamos.

You’re right about Mora. Thanks.

I remember my Dad looking at some cattle around Mora and I thought the people we met were Mennonites and he corrected me.

There are lots of little places like Mora and Ojo Caliente. as examples, that hold interesting, unusual people.

What I have found is that the Jews also have much wisdom for Christians and mankind. If you get over those who claim to be Jews and are not.

El Paso, TX, which is really New Mexico, has a Jewish community of around 5,000.

How do you get that this city is really part of NM? Border dispute or what?
