The Secret of the Three Day Fast
Changing the fate of the Jewish people
17th, 18th, 19th of Tammuz
The fast begins at sunrise and ends at nightfall
IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO REMAIN THE "SILENT COMMUNITY" ANY LONGER
Lacking leadership, with crises arising daily, one after another, whether security, economic, health, social or moral in nature, which are simaltaneously accompanied by threats to our very existence
NOW is the time to take action
AN OUTCRY TO EVERY SINGLE MEMBER OF THE JEWISH NATION
We are currently experiencing a fateful period in time.
Attacked from within and without, while lacking leadership, plagued by many internal problems that are worsening with every passing day.
On the global scene, a wave of antisemitism and ever increasing hatred threatens to destroy us, the lives of many Jews are in immediate danger, this in addition to the huge rate of assimilation which jeopardizes our identity and undermines our very existence.
On the home front, the situations that confront us are the cause of great frustration.
The state of our security, economy, health system, educational system, social conditions and moral conditions, as well as our very identity as a nation, are being put to a test of historic proportions.
WE ARE AT THE EDGE OF AN ABYSS
• IN ALL OF THESE AREAS
• THIS IS THE ACTUAL REALITY
• THAT WE ARE DEALING WITH ON A DAILY BASIS
• THESE ARE NOT EXAGGERATIONS
IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO REMAIN THE SILENT COMMUNITY ANY LONGER
The troubles do not differentiate between our different opinions, but rather attack us all as one nation whose components cannot be seperated
At this time, we must exhibit national responsibility,
as a people,
and take meaningful, unifying action,
which will withstand all threats to our existence.
We are a group of citizens, presently numbering close to ten thousand, who have decided to stop hiding our heads in the sand, and to awaken the nation from its' slumber, from its' ignoring, and the terrible indifference it displays in the face of the atrocities that we are experiencing from both without and within.
Our leadership is also proving helpless in the face of the situation, and there seems to be no likely solution for the Jewish nation, but rather only one rift after another following four rounds of elections - something unheard of in the annals of history.
AT THIS TIME,
THE RESPONSIBILITY RESTS ON US ALONE ON THE NATION ITSELF!
IF WE DO NOT TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR OUR OWN DESTINY,
SOMEONE ELSE WILL
AND AS WE ARE WITNESSING,
THE EGOTISM THAT IS BEING PORTRAYED IS CAPABLE OF BURYING US
Demonstrations, warfare, and violence will not be of help here, neither will efforts to overthrow the current regime, or the like.
Only a solution of substantial awareness that will arise from within ourselves, changing our very essence, will bring with it actual change in all areas.
As Jews, we searched throughout history for the event or occurrence, which succeeded in changing the face of reality on the conscious level, thereby immediately and meaningfully altering our destiny for the blessed better, with neither violence nor warfare.
AND WE DISCOVERED that in the days of Mordechai and Esther THERE WAS A REVERSAL , FOLLOWING A FAST OF THREE (consecutive) DAYS, THAT EFFECTED A CHANGE IN OUR FATE FROM ONE EXTREME TO THE OTHER.
We checked out the secret behind it, and to our amazement we discovered unparalleled ingenuity.
We heard of such an effort made some years ago by a group of people, that indeed changed the reality of the security situation during the period of severe terror attacks, and THAT particular group was a very SMALL one.
At this time, we are turning to the millions of Jews, both in Israel and the world over, to fast for our lives, our future, and the destiny of our children.
Let us conduct meaningful soul searching within ourselves; on the way we relate to one another, on the state of our values, and on our collective identity as a people, for the good of our children, and for the perpetuation of the future generations.
Therefore, we have chosen to publicize our intent to conduct a three day fast, in which one fasts from sunup to sundown, while it being permissible to eat at night - this for three consecutive days.
17th, 18th, 19th
(June 27 - 29)
During these days, we will reflect upon ourselves,
we will resume talking about our unity,
about our identity as a people.
We will find creative solutions for changing the reality,
and for the common advancement,
towards a new purpose,
and not towards the abyss that we are marching towards at present.
A fast of three days will bring about a rallying, for the adjustment of the collective consciousness, for change in the external reality, for delving, for awakening of awareness, and for personal inner soul searching.
History has proven itself in this fashion in a great number of instances!!
We are synchronizing our effort with dates that are known to be difficult for the Jewish people in days gone by - 17th of Tammuz, as well as the 18th and 19th of Tammuz 5771, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday, the 27th, 28th and 29th of June,
In order to begin a new reality,
In order to renew the strength of our inner identity, and to end all acts of hostility, from both inside and out.
I'M STANDING WITH YOU
This page was created solely for the sake of the fast, and in order to participate with the multitudes of those fasting in this historical event, all for the sake of reversing the fate of the Jewish nation, as this hope is dependent on our unity.
,With blessings for peace and success
