When there is a crisis in our homeland of Israel, our collective Jewish spirit is revealed for the strong and beautiful spirit that it is. As much as we all identify with Israel, there is that understandable gulf between world Jewry and Israel.
Come a war, and in seconds the gulf is stripped completely.
The indelible photos flowing in of soldiers, of Israelis helping soldiers, of the strengthened praying and singing, truly penetrate the soul and make us feel like we are one. Because we are one!
