Tehillim Twenty-Six: Assembly

“My foot stood on a straight path; I will bless the Lord in assemblies (Psalms 26:12).” As I mentioned in my post the other day, I’ve been at AIPAC Policy Conference over the past few days. This, as many know, is the largest annual assembly of Jewish and pro-Israel activists. It’s an amazing experience – empowering, inspiring, and enlightening. I’ve been going to AIPAC conferences for over 10 years, and this year is the largest one yet – 18,000 delegates standing up for Israel. In addition to everything AIPAC provides in terms of networking, education, and general Jewish reunions, I truly believe that the work that the organization and the attendees do on behalf of Israel is holy work. We’re not the ones who live in Israel, serving in the army and putting our lives on the line, and therefore making the highest level of sacrifice for Israel. But we can give of our time to our homeland, and use the influence of our words and feet to make that impact.
