Heartbreaking video for Yom Hazikaron
Without a single word, this video for Yom Ha'zikaron, portrays the shock, the depth, and the eventual acceptance of mourning that so many Israeli mothers have suffered. May Hashem be gracious and merciful to our beloved Land and to our People

Remembering the fallen
It's a good time to remember families who have sacrificed so much. Keep them in prayer. On the last day, the fallen will rise again.

I Never Cry While Watching a Movie
Well, almost never. May Hashem bless all the past, present, and future members of the IDF, and their families.

This video so quickly gets to the depth of loss and mourning. I have no words to describe its beauty. Thank You So Very Much!

This is a powerful and moving film. With that being said, the best way to prevent more war, terror and death of our wonderful Jewish defenders of Israel is to stop the idea of creating a terror state on the tiny borders of Israel. Not one inch with Fatah and/or Hamas. Better yet, take back Gaza too! Am Yisrael Chai!
