The Coalition, organized by Ramapo Chief of Staff Mona Montal, was joined by the Police Chiefs of the five Town Police Departments. The coalition hosted its inaugural forum at the Crowne Plaza, in Suffern, N.Y. Rabbi YY Jacobson gave the invocation.

    I am an avid listener and a supporter.  The time has come for the Jewish nation to fulfill it's mission of informaing the 70 nations of the 7 Noachide laws, which are the laws of basic morality.  This is the only answer to this violence. In fact, the world is "acting out" like a child who has been raised without healthy boundaries.

    Dear Rabbi Jacobson, you have the ability to reach and reachout to so many types of people. I think it is time to address this.

    I think yetzias mitzrayin was about 1300 bce.  Yidden slaves 210 years before that.
    First slavery? Yosef was  sold as a slave before so it was a known concept. The code of  hammurabi calls slavery an institution about 1800 bce.
    And, blood flows in veins not sinews.
    Great speech, adjusted to  the  audience.
