Draw Jews Closer

“Some are born great, and others achieve greatness. Our generation is neither. The great saints and sages, leaders of the Jewish world, are with us no more. We are conscious of our smallness. But some have greatness thrust upon them. And that is us: all of us who live at this hour. We have the means, the freedom, the resources, the prevailing climate, to draw Jews closer to Judaism and hence to one another and to the land and state of Israel.”
