 Israel Legal Mission - Day 2

Our second day was intense and very interesting as we experienced Israel on the ground. 
 
First we met with Mati Dan and Ateret Cohanim who are buying back Jewish homes and properties within the heart of Jerusalem, that over time, Jews were thrown out of etc.
 
We learned that the current Muslim quarter was actually the main Jewish quarter with over 20 synagogues prior to the pogroms and war of 48 and the majority of the old city was Jewish.
 
After a delicious Israeli shawarma and falafel lunch, we toured the Sharei Zedek Hospital, which was founded over 100 years ago and is based on Jewish law and ethics.
 
At the hospital, we heard from Rabbi Dr. Steinberg, a leading world expert in medical ethics of the fascinating cases he deals with daily.
 
We heard about Our Crowd's work of creating a legal vehicle to allow individuals to invest in Israel and its technologies as a start up nation and world leader.
 
Over dinner, we heard from Rachel Weiser ESQ., lead counsel of Shurat HaDin, leading the battle against terrorism through legal channels and currently working to get Facebook and others to disallow any terrorist organization to be listed and propagandize.

Overall it was a great day, and seeing Israel deal with its issues of daily life through our legal perspective was eye opening.
 
Regards,
Rabbi Moshe
