Truman, Trump and Trumah

In Efrat, Israel, live inspirational friends with whom Renee and I spent a few nights in 2015, and with whom we expect to spend a few more nights this summer, including a Shabbat.  The husband, born in Chicago, recently wrote the thoughts behind the following.

Think about the common denominators between two American presidents who have made such great contribution to Israel and the Jewish people.

TRUMan – Gave the order for the US to recognize the State of Israel.

TRUMp – Gave the order for the US to finally recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel.

TRUMah – The Hebrew word for contribution.

FAKE News –  Chicago Tribune headlines declaring Dewey the winner of the 1948 election.

FAKE News – Hillary Clinton has 85% chance to win.

Is the comparison of the two presidencies not strikingly uncanny?

The nation is like a mighty lion;
When it is sleeping, no one dares wake it.
Whoever blesses Israel will be blessed,
And whoever curses Israel will be cursed. Numbers 24:9

Over 300 years ago King Louis XIV of France asked Blaise Pascal, the great French philosopher, to give him proof of the supernatural. Pascal answered: “Why, the Jews, your Majesty—the Jews.”

Behold, He who keeps Israel
Will neither slumber nor sleep. Psalm 121:4

May the President and his administration continue to be blessed with success and leadership.

I will bless those who bless you,
But I will curse those who curse you.
And through you I will bless all the nations. Genesis 12:3
