Jews will come Aaron. They'll come to Israel....

Aliyah...Aaron, Jews will come Aaron. They'll come to Israel for reasons they can't

even fathom. They'll turn up at El Al at Laguardia not knowing for sure why

they're there. They'll enter the plane as innocent as children, longing for HaShem.

Of course, we won't mind if you fly El Al, they'll say. It's only $600 per person.

They'll pass over the money without even thinking about it: for it is money they

have and peace they lack. And they'll arrive at Ben-Gurion, walk out to kiss the

ground; sit in the hangar to hear the PM on a perfect afternoon. They'll find they

have reserved apartments & Ulpan somewhere in the North or South, where they

remembered on Pesach when they were children and dreamed of going home. And

they'll listen to the PM and it'll be as if they dipped themselves in holy waters.

The tears of joy will be so thick they'll have to brush them away from their faces.

Jews will come Aaron. The one constant through all the years, Aaron, has been

HaShem. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased

like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But HaShem has marked the time.

This People, this Eretz Yisrael: it's a part of our past, Aaron. It reminds of us of all

that once was Holy and it could be again. Oh... Jews will come Aaron. Jews will

most definitely come.
