"Our goal," I explained at a Manhigut Yehudit meeting, "is to place the pieces of the puzzle that make up the future Jewish liberty state on the table. The entire picture is still not clear but we have a clear direction. More and more Israelis understand that we have a methodical approach and a worldview that applies to everyone, elevates everyone and infuses Israeli society with three fundamental components: Identity, Meaning and Liberty.
The photo of the board here is a summary of the issues that we have been working on for years and which we continue to work on now from the Knesset:
From right to left:
Family and Community
Privatization of land
Land of Israel (recent visits to Ma'aleh Rehavam and Eish Kodesh)
Legalization of medicinal marijuana
The Liberal Lobby
One Chief Rabbi instead of two
Israeli sovereignty over all parts of the Land of Israel in our hands
Outline for voluntary military service
The Knesset committees on which I serve:
1) House Committee
2) Economic Affairs Committee
3) Internal Affairs and Environment Committee
4) Education, Culture and Sports Committee
5) State Control Committee
6) Science and Technology Committee
7) Public Petitions Committee
Each of these items is a world unto itself. But what they all have in common is the identity-meaning-liberty paradigm.
Thank G-d, we have been making progress and the Israeli public is listening.
Obviously, the scope of all this activity is far beyond the abilities of one Knesset Member. We have been working on these issues for 15 years and to succeed, we need help from our supporters. My office in the Knesset is now the command center for all of us.
These days, I feel like a person who has been walking through the desert for years, progressing little by little. Suddenly, I get a super jeep and what used to take months now take just a few hours. I invite all of you to get into the jeep. To volunteer, visit our Facebook page or write to Shmuel Sackett: Shmuel@jewishisrael.org
