Rabbi Asher Lopatin of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel's rabbi until Emanuel moved to Washington, is preparing to move to Israel. He's trying to organize a large group of fellow American Jews to join him and together they'll set up a new settlement north of Beer Sheva. He seems to think he can bring hundred of families, perhaps as many as a few thousand people.
He also seems to be in favor of a one-state solution to the conflict, which puts him far to the left of 99.8% of the Israelis. Frankly, I don't care. If the man can bring a thousand Jews from America to Israel, he's welcome. If once he's here he wants to vote for some fringe party that can't elect anyone for lack of supporters, who cares?
