On Yom HaAliyah, Now is the Time to Support Lone Soldiers ✡ “And Yehoshua set up in Gilgal the twelve stones” – Israel365

Four American lone soldiers on their day of aliyah, about to draft into the IDF (Eliana Rudee)
And Yehoshua set up in Gilgal the twelve stones they had taken from the Yarden.
Joshua 4:20 (The Israel Bible™)

וְאֵת שְׁתֵּים עֶשְׂרֵה הָאֲבָנִים הָאֵלֶּה אֲשֶׁר לָקְחוּ מִן־הַיַּרְדֵּן הֵקִים יְהוֹשֻׁעַ בַּגִּלְגָּל
Hear the verse in Hebrew

v’-AYT sh’-TAYM es-RAY ha-a-va-NEEM ha-AY-leh a-SHER la-k’-KHU min ha-yar-DAYN hay-KEEM y’-ho-SHU-a ba-gil-GAL

Israel: United but not Uniform

Yehoshua establishes a monument from twelve stones taken from the Yarden, each representing one tribe. Rabbi Shlomo Aviner notes that this monument represents the “unity but not uniformity” of the Jewish people. There are twelve individual stones, which symbolize the diversity of the tribes. But the stones are not scattered. Together, they form a unified monument. This “unity but not uniformity” is one of the keys to Israel’s success. Israel is an extremely diverse country. Yet her people have unified to create a society that is truly a “light unto the nations.” On Yom HaAliyah, we honor this fact by celebrating Israel’s immigrants who make the country diverse, and at the same time, united in its Jewish peoplehood. We also give a special thanks to the lone soldiers in the IDF who have made aliyah, leaving their homes and familes to protect the State of Israel. Thank you, and happy Yom HaAliyah! Support lone soldiers on Yom HaAliyah and ahead of the Passover holiday here.
