You passed the test

Maybe the most difficult test a person can face. Indeed the purpose od every jew is to fill the world with the knowledge that there is a G-d and that when it comes to situations we dont understand we surrender to our belief that however painful it feels its all good. And in this case you can already see some of that good by what you've done. (Rav Nachman says that for a test to be a test it is inevitable that you have to have no understanding.)

May the memory of your son hasten the fate of the wicked as described in Psalm 92.

Are Arab/Israeli Children included to participate at this camp?

A wonderful mitzvah in honor of Koby Mandell - his memory is truly for a blessing -
I HOPE all Israeli children that have been victims of crimes can be and will be included to participate at this camp.
Shalom

Awesome crystal clear Faith

What really touched me in this episode is the way, when brought to the test just like Abraham and Issac, Sheri understood with such exraordinary Emuna that her understanding is limited, and therefore excepted what God has done. Such, even managing to expand with love and kindness. May the lord give them the strength to continue and be a source of light to all of us.
