Knee-Jerk Reaction to War

My soul is torn. I feel numb. Since I heard the horrific news of what is happening in Eretz Yisrael, I have been frozen. It is difficult to fathom the heartbreak and devastation the people in Israel are going through. The torment is beyond comprehension. I can’t stop thinking about all the families and towns so greatly affected by this terrible tragedy.

אַחֵינוּ כָּל בֵּית יִשְׂרָאֵל
הַנְּתוּנִים בַּצָּרָה

With the heart of a mother, I am very concerned for the welfare of my children, granddaughter, and other family members in Israel now, but we are all brothers and sisters. All of Klal Yisrael is my concern. The anguish of one is the anguish of all.

As I sit miles away from the war zone, it feels so wrong, almost sacrilegious, to continue with mundane tasks when the heartbeat of our nation is under siege. This though is the evil intent of these monsters. They want to see our spirits shattered, our routine disrupted by terror. They want us to be overcome with fear and interrupt our everyday lives. We should not let that happen! We should show them we are strong and will not let our fear dictate our lives.

Let us be resilient and push forward.

Let us continue with all the chesed that Bnai Yisrael is known for.

Let us continue to redt shidduchim and build future generations of Klal Yisrael.

We will not stop!

We will never give up and surrender!

עם ישראל חי

May Hashem save us and bring the final redemption with Mashiach B’korov!!
