Zamir from the Author: Abraham Garmaize. This book contains two parts. Part one is "The War of the Jews: How the Jews are Fighting Each Other and the Remedy." Part two is ecumenical memorial services for 9-11. "Like a lazy river in summer that gives water to a thirsty land," is how Rabbi Garmaize describes God's love as it is meant for the people of Israel. Garmaize uses ancient lessons from the Torah and the Bible to implore today's Jewish Community to shower one another with friendship, brotherhood and love. His purpose in this book is to show a divided Israel it is necessary to accept one another in Peace, so the same olive branch may be extended to those who would relish its destruction. This is a special book for Memorial Services for 9/11. The Memorial Services is for all dinaminations; divided into 3 sections, Jewish, Catholic and Protestant. It describes the tragedy, hope and prayers.
