Attn.: Mrs Karnit Flug. and staff,
I believe we owe an enormous and great thank-you to you that the Shekel is still carrying Zalman Shazar (200,-), Ischak Ben Svi (100,-), Shai Agnon (50,-) and Moshe Sharet (20,-) the four Israeli Heroes that made the book Ebay Ha Nachal with the writings of Rav. Israel Odesser (od esser:10,-). Eaby Ha Nachal is also the name of the village I live in.
I have an idea that could greatly assist the Ukrainian Government and make the connection between our two countries as good as can be, (we buy 95% of our wheat from there). The Ukrainian government desperately needs a currency that works as well as ours. We could therefore print money for that government with Ukrainians we love like
the Baal Shem Tov, and other respectable, even holy people that were pro-Israel. I think this new currency could immediately be put to use by the provisional government to raise the militia to defend the emerging country. The finance minister could get this NEW CURRENCY delivered to him for distribution, and the old currency could be traded in, this is a way to control corruption at a critical time, it also identifies who is with who.
There are many Ukrainians in Israel and Canada that would be supportive and get involved.
I just read that today, 03.02.2014 you intend to take away Shai Agnon. I am afraid you are about to learn that the economy is just as much based on Rabbi Nachman (money & wheat) as it was on Josef. It is a phenbomenal mistake to change the Shekel and we desperately need Rabbi Nachman in Jerusalem to counterbalance this monumental error. Change the bills, but not the people on the bills! Bringing Rabbi Nachman to Jerusalem is the only way to save the economy from this tragic mistake, when you realize this, I hope I will still be around to explain why to you.
