Esther 4:14 For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?”
For the Jewish population of the United Kingdom voting day, December 12th is looming.

But just two days after the election, regardless of the outcome the Jewish community can celebrate the feast of Hanukkah. A time to remember that great miracle of light with the one days supply of oil allowing the Menorah candle to burn for EIGHT days!
The God of all creation made this miracle happen – and He will hold you and keep you in the palm of His hand. Praise be to His Name.
UK – Has the timing of Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis’ bombshell intervention on antisemitism in the Labour Party helped or hindered Jeremy Corbyn’s attempt to seize power in the coming General Election?
But Corbyn consistently refused to do so.
Rabbi Mirvis, who has consistently refused to meet Corbyn, launched his astonishing attack in The Times and was quickly backed by leaders of other religious communities. This left Corbyn and his associates reeling on the day they had attempted to initiate their own programme to confront all forms of racism.
Corbyn has also been attacked by the Ex MI6 head who stated that he posed a security risk for Britain.
How we need to pray for our country at this time. We have never been in such a dilemma, outside of WW2, we need to cry out to the LORD to save us from this ‘impossible’ situation.
USA – With the UN passing so many resolutions against Israel, it is good news to see President Trump once again supporting the Jewish Nation. After recognising Jerusalem as Israel’s Capital, recognising Israel’s annexation of the Golan Heights and closing the Palestinian offices in Washington, the USA has announced that Israeli settlements on the West Bank are legal and do not violate international law.
This shift in American policy was announced by Pompeo who said “After carefully studying all sides of the legal debate, this administration agrees with President Reagan”. This announcement came after a year long review conducted by the State Departments Legal Office.

Israel – November saw one of the worst months for some time in regard to rocket attacks from Gaza. A 48 hour flare up in hostilities following the targeted assassination of Islamic
Jihad commander Baha Abu al-
In retaliation to the rocket attack Israeli war planes pummelled sites throughout the Gaza Strip killing 34 Palestinians.
The rockets caused injuries to 80 Israelis, mostly from shrapnel.
As always, Israeli targets were chosen carefully to hit Islamic Jihad. Following the attacks the Prime Minister stated “We have scored a great victory” and his new defence minister, Naftali Bennett added “No terror leader will now be able to sleep peacefully in his bed”.
November also saw much dismay and bitterness in Israel as two stretches of land straddling the border with Jordan were handed back to Amman.
The two territories – comprising a little more than 1000 acres – was a particularly harsh blow to Israeli farmers.
Israel had held both stretches of land under a deal which was part of the 1994 Jordan-

Every blessing, Maranatha.
