This is not the first time the comparison between President Obama and the Egyptian Pharoah of old, has been made. I speak, of course, of the “…new king over Egypt who knew not Joseph.” (Ex. 1:8)

This is also not the first time that the comparison has been made between the Exile of Egypt and the Exile Edom (Esau/Rome/The West), our current exile. Likewise, our Sages draw many parallels between the Exodus from Egypt and the completion of the fourth and, God willing, final exile.

Will ParObama release this son of Israel? Or will HaShem “harden his heart?” (Ex. 4:21)

Was the recent swarm of locusts across Israel just a seasonal thing? Or was it a sign of what is to follow?

In any event, I recommend that Jews begin their trek toward Israel now.

It is amazing just how many forget, even now, as we approach the holiday of Pesah (Passover), that the goal after being taken out of Egypt, and then receiving the Torah, was to reach Israel, the Land that was promised to us.

Jonathan Pollard lands in Israel

Jonathan Pollard arrives in Israel a month after the US Parole Commission lifted the restrictions on him.

Elad Benari , 30December2020 4:03 AM https://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/293967

Jonathan Pollard landed in Israel on Tuesday night, the Israel Hayom newspaper reported.

According to the report, the Pollards arrived in Israel on a direct private flight from Liberty Airport in Newark, New Jersey, to Ben Gurion Airport. Prior to landing, Pollard was invited by the pilots into the cockpit, where he listened to the Ben Gurion Airport control tower, which greeted him in Hebrew on the occasion of his arrival in Israel.

Israel Hayom editor-in-chief Boaz Bismuth tweeted a photo of Pollard and his wife, Esther, aboard the plane.

Diaspora Affairs Minister Omer Yankelevitch welcomed Pollard to Israel.

“Jonathan, how good it is that you came home,” she tweeted.

Pollard’s arrival in Israel comes a month after the US Parole Commission issued a certificate terminating parole and the restrictions that were imposed on him, making him free to travel anywhere, including Israel.

When Pollard was released from prison in 2015 after serving 30 years of his life sentence for transmitting classified information to Israel, his parole commission imposed strict parole guidelines for a period of five years.

As part of those restrictions, Pollard was not allowed to leave his home between 7:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m., was monitored by a GPS device and was not permitted to leave the US. That five-year period ended in November.

It had been widely speculated that Pollard will move to Israel once the restrictions are lifted. His attorney, Eliot Lauer, told Arutz Sheva last month that Pollard and his wife “have every expectation to make Aliyah and move to Israel. Because of Esther’s medical condition, they first need to get approval from the medical advisers in New York and make sure that she’s medically capable of making the trip and that suitable arrangements will be made in Israel to continue her progress. Once that is done, I think it’s just a question of logistics, packing up and getting on a plane.”

Jonathan and Ester Pollard lands in Israel: ‘Ecstatic to be home at last’

Posted 30December2020, 15 Tevet 5781: Jonathan Pollard landed in Israel on Tuesday night, some 35 years after being arrested in the United States and serving 30 years in prison for spying for and providing top-secret classified information to Israel which the US Deep State was required by law to provide Israel.
The Pollards arrived in Israel on a direct private flight from Liberty Airport in Newark, New Jersey, to Ben Gurion Airport. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was moved to meet them on the tarmac next to the plane where they kissed the Holy ground of Eretz Israel and recited the Shehecheyanu blessing together then the Pollard’s received their Teudat Zehut (Israeli Identity Cards).
The Pollards making Aliyah (immigrate to Israel) is as important as Natan Sarnakey, the Soviet Refusenik, who made Aliyah from the Soviet Union in February 1986. Just as the Corrupt Soviet Deep State has collapsed so will the corrupt US and Israeli Deep State collapse.

Following is the text of the press release issued by Jonathan Pollards attorneys on their letterhead (printed with permission) …



NEW YORK, NY (November 20, 2020) The U.S. Parole Commission has issued a certificate terminating parole and lifting all parole restrictions on our pro bono client Jonathan J. Pollard. Specifically, Mr. Pollard is no longer subject to a curfew, is no longer prohibited from working for a company that does not have U.S. government monitoring software on its computer systems, is no longer required to wear a wrist monitor that tracks his whereabouts, and is free to travel anywhere, including Israel, for temporary or permanent residence, as he wishes.

During the past five years, since his release on parole from federal prison, Mr. Pollard has been subject to these U.S. government restrictions. We are grateful and delighted that our client is finally free of any restrictions, and is now a free man in all respects. We look forward to seeing our client in Israel.

Mr. Pollard was released on parole November 21, 2015. He had been in prison since November 21, 1985, serving a sentence of life in prison for conspiracy to deliver classified information to the State of Israel.

Over the past several months, we have communicated with the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Parole Commission, emphasizing that Mr. Pollard has had an exemplary record, both as a prisoner and as a parolee, and that there is every reason for confidence that he will be a model citizen after his parole restrictions are lifted.

Mr. Pollard has asked us to communicate the following on his behalf:

• Mr. Pollard is happy to finally be able to assist his beloved wife Esther, who is fighting an aggressive form of cancer. Mr. Pollard would like people to know that it was his wife, more than anyone else, who kept him alive during all the years he was in prison.

• Mr. Pollard is deeply grateful to his longstanding pro bono lawyers Eliot Lauer and Jacques Semmelman, and their law firm Curtis, Mallet-Prevost, Colt & Mosle LLP, who have stood by him for so many years, and whose perseverance, creativity, and forceful advocacy were instrumental in securing his release from prison on parole, and the lifting of the parole restrictions.

• Mr. Pollard is also extremely thankful to Rabbi Pesach Lerner, who has worked tirelessly for many years on Mr. Pollard’s behalf, and to the generous contributors who have assisted financially during the past five years, as the U.S. government placed insurmountable impediments on Mr. Pollard’s ability to earn a living.

• Mr. Pollard expresses appreciation and gratitude to Ambassador Ron Dermer, acting under the auspices of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, for their efforts on his behalf.

• Mr. Pollard thanks Dov Friedberg for his longstanding support and friendship; Israeli attorneys Larry Dub and Nitsana Dirshan-Leitner for their devoted pro bono representation over many years; and Adi Ginsberg, Rabbi Asher Mivtzari, and all the volunteers under their direction for their unrelenting work in Israel on Mr. Pollard’s behalf.

• Mr. Pollard expresses his deepest respect and heartfelt thanks to the late Chief Rabbi, His Honor Rav Mordechai Eliyahu zt”l, and to his entire family, as well as to his Chief of Staff Rav Chaim Suissa, for providing spiritual guidance and strength to Jonathan and Esther Pollard from the outset of the case, and whose friendship remains strong and vibrant.

• Mr. Pollard is deeply grateful to so many others in the U.S., Israel, and around the world who have helped devotedly. They are too numerous to mention by name, but they include: Andrew Brooke, Goldi Steiner, Risha Balter and Nomi Winkler of Toronto; Bella Amiram and Naomi Knobel of Jerusalem; and in the U.S., the late Chaim Stern, attorneys Kenneth Lasson and Gary Apfel, and the late Judge George Leighton. Finally, Mr. Pollard thanks all people of good will who have kept him in their prayers and hoped for this day.

Please continue your heartfelt prayers for the Pollards as they continue the struggle for Esther’s life. Pray for the refuah shleimah of Esther Yocheved bat Raizel Brachah.

Baruch Hashem! Prayers have been heard and answered. May also the prayers for refuah shleimah for Esther be heard and answered also.

The statement made by his lawyers contains a massive revelation that few know about and even fewer will notice; “working for a company that does not have U.S. government monitoring software on its computer systems.” I know of several large financial and brokerage companies that had all of their incoming and ooutgoing media, data, and communications information routed through a secure, onsite NSA communicationss hub that no company executive or employee had access to, and none even had a clue what it was. This statenment by the lawyers just goes to show that there is no such thing as a private and confidential communication. It also highlights the ironic fact that unwarranted state sanctioned spying on businesses and individuals is permissable, as is witholding critical security information from an ally. The second major revelation in the statement clearly shows the ultimate hypocrisy of the state sponored injustice in Pollards case.

May the Pollards live out the rest of their days in good health and comfort in EY.



Jonathan Pollard: “Key to Redemption”

November 22, 2020 https://shiratdevorah.blogspot.com/2020/11/jonathan-pollard-key-to-redemption.html

Jonathan and Esther Pollard

Jonathan and Esther Pollard

The following is from an article dated July 2015 written by Rivkah Lambert Adler

One of the most prominent personalities who offered Pollard emotional and spiritual support during his decades in prison was Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu. Eliyahu served as a Chief Rabbi in Israel from 1983 to 1993 and had a close and supportive relationship with Pollard for 20 years. Eliyahu passed away June 7, 2010.

Shortly after Eliyahu’s death, Pollard’s then-wife Esther began to speak out about the spiritual messages the rabbi shared with them. In an article published by The Yeshiva World News on June 11, 2010, Esther shared Eliyahu’s prediction that the eventual release of Jonathan Pollard from prison is connected to the final redemption.

“Over time, the Rav [Rabbi] shared with us and with a few others who were very close to him that Jonathan’s release is the key to the redemption of all of Am Yisrael [the Jewish people],” she wrote. “He taught us how Jonathan’s release is also the key to the release of all of Israel’s captives and MIAs. Once Jonathan is out, all the captives are all out! Once they are all out, we are all in Geula [redemption]!”

“Perhaps most significant of all, the Rav always referred to Jonathan as the ‘Yosef HaTzadik shel doreinu’ (The Yosef Hatzadik of our generation),” she added.

This last reference connects Jonathan Pollard to the Biblical Joseph, who was also imprisoned.

In August of 2010, Esther Pollard sent her husband a birthday letter which he released for publication. In it, she strengthened her husband’s spirits with the words of the recently departed Rabbi Eliyahu.

“You are a cosmic key to the redemption of the Jewish people. Your release is synonymous with the release of the Shechinah [the Divine presence] from galut [exile]. Your release is tied up with the Moshiach Ben David’s [Messiah son of David’s] return to the Land. Your release is bound to the redemption of the land and people of Israel.”


A Special Day of Prayer

3 Kislev 5781 19 November 2020 http://palmtreeofdeborah.blogspot.com/2020/11/a-special-day-of-prayer.html

Today has been designated a special day of prayer on behalf of Jonathan and Esther Pollard, for their healing and for release from travel restrictions imposed by the terms of his parole, preventing their return to Eretz Yisrael. It is sponsored by Youth for Pollard and they are asking each one in his own place to pray a few chapters of Tehillim 120, 121, 130, 23 – ending with the prayer specially composed for Jonathan and Esther by HaRav Mordechai Eliyahu, ztz”l.

Tizku l’mitzvot! May all your prayers be answered affirmatively and may we all hear very good news very soon! May it be His will.

“Another Jewish Holiday, Another Lockdown”

25 Marcheshvan 5781 12 November 2020 https://palmtreeofdeborah.blogspot.com/2020/11/another-jewish-holiday-another-lockdown.html


As I have pointed out before – curfews, tracking, lockdowns – the whole world is now getting a small taste of Jonathan Pollard’s reality.

Jonathan Pollard's Parole Conditions

Jonathan Pollard’s Parole Conditions

From the Justice for Jonathan Pollard website, we find…

Over time, the Rav [HaRav Mordechai Eliyahu, ztz”l] shared with us and with a few others who were very close to him that Jonathan’s release is the key to the redemption of all of Am Yisrael.

He taught us how Jonathan’s release is also the key to the release of all of Israel’s captives and MIAs. Once Jonathan is out, all the captives are all out! Once they are all out, we are all in Geula!

Perhaps most significant of all, the Rav always referred to Jonathan as the “Yosef HaTzadik shel doreinu” (The Yosef Hatzadik of our generation).

It was reported on the Shuvu Banim website back in April that Rav Pinto said:


“…this whole pandemic could have come about just because of one single person who is suffering, one person who is suffering tremendous pain.”


In that same article, the rabbi reportedly said:


“We will pass through this plague,…. But you should know, that this world is not going to remain the same world it was. …Just as after the mabul, and the generation of the flood, when the world was totally changed. Just like occurred after all those other times when there were such big shocks across the whole world, at this sort of level, and the world changed – so the same will happen here.”

The Unforgiveable Sin

24 Marcheshvan 5781 11 November 2020 https://palmtreeofdeborah.blogspot.com/2020/11/the-unforgiveable-sin.html

Before I turn to the topic I’ve chosen for today, let me be very clear to everyone reading that my views and opinions are mine alone. I do not represent anyone but myself here. And so it has been for over a decade and, God willing, it will remain that way for as long as HKB”H allows me to speak.

What was Jonathan Pollard’s real crime?

“Jonathan Pollard was indicted on only one charge: one count of passing classified information to an ally, without intent to harm the United States.” [See Facts of the Pollard Case.]

That is the crime he was accused of, but that is not the crime for which he was sentenced to life imprisonment. That crime – the real crime – his unforgivable sin was exposing the true face of America.

Pollard discovered that information vital to Israel’s security was being deliberately withheld by certain elements within the U.S. national security establishment.

Israel was legally entitled to this vital security information according to a 1983 Memorandum of Understanding between the two countries.

The information being withheld from Israel included Syrian, Iraqi, Libyan and Iranian nuclear, chemical, and biological warfare capabilities – being developed for use against Israel. It also included information on ballistic missile development by these countries and information on planned terrorist attacks against Israeli civilian targets.

When Pollard discovered this suppression of information and asked his superiors about it, he was told to “mind his own business”, and that “Jews get nervous talking about poison gas; they don’t need to know.”

He also learned that the objective of cutting off the flow of information to Israel was to severely curtail Israel’s ability to act independently in defense of her own interests.

Pollard was painfully aware that Israeli lives were being put in jeopardy as a result of this undeclared intelligence embargo. He did everything he possibly could to stop this covert policy and to have the legal flow of information to Israel restored. When his efforts met no success, he began to give the information to Israel directly.

The “Medinah shel Chesed” – the pig’s front paws shoved out proudly in front to show how “kosher” it is – this mass graveyard of millions of assimilated Jews; the worst crime anyone can commit in their view is to do anything that dispels their illusion of purity.

America as a nation has a narcissistic personality – question them, cross them – and you will certainly be made to pay and pay dearly and pay forever – their need for revenge can never be satisfied.

Jonathan Pollard was concerned about threats from our Arab enemies, never even imagining that the country he worked for was itself the worst enemy of all. The missionary apparatus was just getting set up in the early eighties, but by the time he was thrown in prison and the key tossed away, Israel had been infiltrated in a very big way.
