About this website

This website addresses issues of concern to Jews and friends of Israel from religious, historical, legal and political perspectives. It is part of LEMA’AN ZION’s Hasbarah program, providing information and clarifications on a range of topics, such as Torah -(Bible-)related issues, anti-Semitism, Jewish-Christian relations, the State of Israel, the Arab-Israeli conflict, and more. The Hebrew words “Lema’an Zion” mean “for Zion’s sake.” The phrase is taken from the Book of Isaiah in the Bible: “For Zion’s sake I will not be silent and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not be still” (62:1).
