The purpose of this blog is to act as a fist to the face of the Jewish conscience and to jar Jews out of oblivion. It is a call to return to the Torah, to start the process of tshuvah gemura, and to rid the collective body of the infectious "shtetl syndrome". The Jewish Fist is also a warning to the enemies of the Almighty, whether it be the Arab Amalakites, or the mixed multitude within. The Jewish Fist has risen, and when it descends, G-d help you!
" Thou comest to me with a sword and a spear and a shield, but I come to thee in the name of the L-rd of Hosts, the G-d of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast humiliated..." (I Samuel, 17:45-47)
(IsraelNN.com) The Bar-El family – dad, mom, and three sweet children – lived their lives happily until one day, when their daughter Shira fell ill. They thought it must be one of the common childhood ailments until tests showed them that Shira, three years old, had brain cancer.
Their lives were turned upside down. Shira's father had to quit his job so that he could be with her in the oncological ward at Tel HaShomer Hospital. His wife has to find time to visit the hospital and also raise the other four children."More Israel News"
The Jewish Fist Commentary: A heartbreaking story like this really puts things in perspective. While we sit around complaining about our silly little sniffles and runny noses, we should remind ourselves that there are people out there with real health problems. Like small children with cancer. May Hakadosh Baruch Hu grant this little girl a full and speedy recovery.
