So deeply powerful --- May G-d Bless Israel with Peace

Too many in Israel have fallen -- the impact of this tiny video went straight to my heart --- the courage of the IDF and all who love them has been tested enough !
Why does the world not understand ? The land and the people have given so much ---
Thank you for this wordless message of grief and courage -

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.
