One Yerushalayim talmid torah found a most unique way to circumvent the annual dispute surrounding Independence Day by giving out its own version of the national flag.
The move seems to have met the approval of the talmidim and children alike, instilling a different message, not a negative one but taking it to the positive realm.
Kikar Shabbat quotes a parent saying “It was a pleasant surprise, not to mention a wonderful educational message. He felt it acknowledges the Jewish state, but unlike today’s reality, it does so alongside our declaration of emunah in HKBH.
“One cannot deny the miracles and wonder that Hashem did; the establishment of the state after the horrific Holocaust through Israel’s wars to present day. We see today just how far the chilul Hashem has gone by those who oppose the state, who spare no means – event to side with the deniers of the Holocaust and terrorists”.
