This week’s parsha of Masei, which begins with the words “Eileh masei Bnei Yisroel,” listing the many stops the Jews made as they traversed the desert on their way to the Promised Land, reflects the eternal ethos of our people. They traveled, set up camp, got comfortable and then packed up and moved on.

I can’t imagine it and I assume that unless you lived through it, you can’t imagine it either: the daily barrages of rockets, not only interrupting your daily life, but threatening your very existence.

It is very hard for those who live in the relative calm of America to have the slightest inkling of the fear that hovers over the heads of so many toshvei Eretz Yisroel during these last weeks and those who live in the southern sections of the land over the past number of years.

A rash of security lapses at the country’s highest-level security labs, including an incident exposing dozens of workers in Atlanta to live anthrax, has raised alarm across the nation, undermining public trust in the Centers for Disease Control and its Obama-appointed director Dr. Tom Frieden.

I used to see Rav Shlomo Lorencz zt”l almost every day. He lived at 17 Rechov Ponim Meiros in the same building as Rav Uri Zohar, with whom I have maintained a daily learning session over the past 20 years.

In his later years, I made it a habit of visiting Rav Lorencz to say hello. Sometimes that “hello” took only a few minutes, while at ­­­­other times it took longer. He almost always had a good vort to share about something he had learned that morning, and sometimes we engaged in political discussion. I even managed to gain a few interviews from those meetings, although he insisted that they not be published during his lifetime, since he didn’t want others to challenge him about the fact that he had agreed for me to interview him but had turned them down.

During the past year in Eretz Yisrael, the olam haTorah and P’eylim / Lev L’Achim have been faced with three extremely difficult nisyonos.

The first nisayon is the fact that the Israeli government has been delegitimizing and inciting the general public against the olam haTorah, the bnei hayeshivos, and the chareidi population. The media has been drafted in full force toward this vicious and heartless cause, portraying yungeleit and the bnei hayeshivos as parasites living off the working man. The Torah educational system has been presented as producing illiterates, lacking even the most basic education in general studies. Basically, they have painted a picture of us as wretched human beings, who allow our children no future.

Indeed my friends
The world’s aflame
And some just go and play their game
Golf and war
It’s all the same
Why not?
Israel is to blame!

Planes go missing
Out at sea
Cheers in Gaza
Shouts of glee
Girls are in captivity
And their friends went
And murdered three
