Portion Emor and  Holy celebration of a Struggling To Be Holy nation Surrounded by - OIY 
How can we all be just a bit holier?

On Friday count " today is the twentieth day of counting the omer    "
And after dark say    "     today is the   twenty first   day of counting the omer   "
Is that so hard? ....thats what the Almighty wants. Count HOLY THINGS!
Also Count how many pleasant days have you had since Seder night!
Count your blessings ....   AND
Count on the Jewish holidays to stay connected .... As we read about them in this week;s portion
 We in Israel just celebrated Independence Day
We also just had a little HOLY war.  Did you PRAY for ISRAEL?  For our soldiers? For our kids running when the sirens warned them of attempted murder by evil people?
Pray a little - or not just a little - because ISRAEL IS KEEPING THE WORLD SAFE AND FREE
So ...
Read That Siddur with a little Reverence tonight and remember what
Rabbi Shlomo taught: (revised from the message of Yeshivat Simchat Shlomo founded by Reb Sholom (zatza"L)
How Israeli soldiers get so much holiness?
 Imagine if I would learn Torah day and night. For two thousand years, I could not reach that level of holiness. I could not.
 That is Avraham Avinu's holiness. 

Everybody asks, when G-d spoke to Avraham for the first time, why didn't He tell him to keep Shabbos, to keep Kashrut? 
Why did He immediately tell him, "Lech lecha - Go though from thy land, and from thy father's house?"
 G-d gave over to Avraham Avinu what Israeli Soldiers know - sometimes you must leave everything behind you for G-d, for Israel, for somebody else.
 Their awesome holiness comes from the deepest depths, from inside. This is what Avaham Avinu is all about.
Rabbi C taught:
When Mashiach comes it will be revealed to us how holy our children are. 
You never know, sometimes you see somebody and you don't have the faintest idea of how holy they are inside. This is why we NEED to be in touch with the mystical part of the Torah, with the deepest secrets.
Love and Shabbos and Prayers from the Holy Land of Holy People of Israel
