Chaim starts by giving his viewers the traditional “Shabbat Shalom” greeting, saying that peace is what he and his comrades in the Israel Defense Forces are fighting to restore and maintain.
He then says that he wants to do something a little different in this video from what he usually does, giving his own testimony about who he is and why he’s doing what he’s doing.
He says he made Aliyah to Israel with his parents and siblings when he was very young and grew up here. He’s not just a Sgt. Major in the IDF’s elite combat engineers, he’s also the Chairman of the Board of the Aliyah Return Center and the Faithful Galileeans, two registered NGO charities that operate in Israel. The purpose of these organizations is to assist new immigrants to Israel as they take their first steps into a new life in their ancestral homeland. This assistance includes free housing but also Hebrew language classes, job training, professional certification, a furniture warehouse and many other things.
Chaim says that he and his family live in Galilee to share in the pioneer experience, and when he first came to Israel as a boy, he didn’t have any idea that someday he’d be part of a global movement for the restoration of the Holy Land.
He encourages his viewers to get involved with what God is doing in Israel today, especially in regards to Aliyah, because anti-Semitism is on the rise around the world and more and more Jewish people are going to be trying to escape that phenomenon by making Aliyah to Israel.
But Chaim says that making Aliyah isn’t easy and that’s why the Aliyah Return Center exists, in order to make the transition smoother for people. He concludes by inviting his viewers to come be part of blessing the work of the Aliyah Return Center by volunteering, praying for the work, or whatever God has put on thier hearts to do.
