RCRF on NASO Wednesday, May 27, 2015
Shalom, this is Evelyn Haies founder and president of the non profit Rachels Children Reclamation Foundation formed 21 years ago to raise up the Jewish generations to be meritous like Rachel Imeinu. Rachel's Tomb in BeisLechem is where Ima Rachel died “on the way” to teach derech eretz. 7 years of writing contests inspired children and adults to connect to their roots and midos. Investing $613.000 to purchase adjoining properties got Kever Rachel included in the borders of Jerusalem. RCRF has the contract and cancelled checks. The problem now is to redevelop 12 years of major accomplishments and to emphasize the sanctity of Torah borders.
Parasha Naso means to raise up as a nazarite, apologizing, by voluntary atonement
To go from Exodus, a nation of slaves to a nation to be respected, there needs to be love of Hashem, respect and responsibility. In the parasha Moses assigns. Itamar, son of Aaron appoints. The treasurer, the gatekeeper, the musician are all part of the whole, unique and necessary participants. A major problem examined is contamination. One must atone for depriving the nation of Gd’s gifts. To take from because one is a ger, old, a woman, an other, stupid, of another time, place is not only stealing the other’s property, work, mission but insulting the Creator, saying no to HASHEM’s choice . As one excuses stealing, by claiming the rich won’t miss it, the person is an American, a foreigner, has no heirs, doesn’t belong to his tribe is forbidden and unjustifiable.
Can a yeshiva that uses a fraudulent permit to deconstruct RCRF money purchased Beit Bnei Rachel uplift? Can a yeshiva that cements a Sefer Torah into the floor merit to teach? Can a yeshiva that throws a Sefer Torah into the street the day before Rosh Hoshanah not be ashamed? Can the bullying of women, groups, chopping their refrigerator, discarding their property, destroying the Museum of Aliyah and Biblical Art be respected? Can a nation of bystanders overcome? They say there are two sides to a story. Yes, there is good and evil, right and wrong, owners and coveters, givers and takers, investigators and perverters of justice, seekers of truth and those herding with corrupt misleaders. The Haftorah teaches the process of child rearing involves, parent rearing, teacher rearing, leadership rearing. Our youth are off the derech because derech eretz is a lost reality. G-d is not merciful to the unrepentant. Seeing arrests of leader after leader, Torah Judaism is insulted. RCRF is a victim of downright wrong, a victim of threats and silence, bullies and bystanders, legal expenses and illegal activity. Help RCRF actualize the Yirmiyahu prophesy and prove contamination shames. Let the lesson and punishment come speedily.

Our 21st Annual Commemoration of the Yahrzeit of Rachel Imeinu will be Sunday, October 25, 11 MarCheshvan 5776. The theme is “Not by Rachels Tears Alone”.
Remember, amassing wealth unlawfully degenerates. Repent …Remember your Creator….Peer into your souls, improve your ways and your deeds.” Demand justice. Remember, maintaining the highest standards strengthens our generations, brings respect and world peace. Ima Rachel is remembered 3600 years because of her deeds.
We expect to do a reading of 1998 and 2005 Sefer Torahs on Rosh Chodesh Tammuz, Thursday, June 18, the birthday and Yahrzeit of Yosef, ben Rachel, the day both were dedicated. You’re invited.
RCRF re-established facts to connect Jewish roots, identity, righteousness and rights with responsibility and redemption for all. Teaching values of old is key to the future. Remember RCRF has made a difference while those who lie and steal erase, no matter their flatterings. Remember RCRF, do not be bystanders, react. Delayed justice damages.
