We have had a joyous and sweet Sukkot feast, celebrating in a massive sukkah built here on the Mount of Blessing. Some highlights from the Feast have included: delicious food, going up to Jerusalem for two days, and some good laughs at one of the best talent shows in HaYovel’s history!
This week’s episode continues the story of Avraham the shepherd from Kfar Tapuach (trans. “Apple Village”). You will have the special opportunity to hear from Avraham’s heart as he tells the story of his family’s experiences in the land, and of the struggles and trials that have strengthened them over their years of living in Israel.
Avraham shares here how his daughter, along with her husband, were killed many years ago in a terrorist attack, leaving eight children as orphans. You will be strengthened to hear of the courageous spirits of Avraham and his family, as none of them gave up following this tragedy, but continued living in and building up the heartland of Israel, fighting evil with good, terror with rebuilding the ancient ruins in the mountains of Samaria.
