Brought tears to my eyes!

This is so inspiring and it brought tears to my eyes. The world sought to annihilate us, but G-d is faithful and the people of Israel still live to this day! What a wonderful video. Thanks for sharing.

We must aply the difference between redemption and revevenge

The wonderful story of this 104 years lady and her 400 descendants is wonder, is full of G_d´s Glory, it is the right example to explain the Love of G_d showed in real redemption.
The word revenge promotes hate of enemies, the word redemption promotes recognize the wonderful Lord we have. Lest think each word we use to avoid hate to us.

Absolutely amazing

Very emotional and beautiful. I would like the video to go a bit slower as I had to keep pausing to read everything.
What a special lady. It brought tests to my eyes.
