As we examine the source of mourning during the Three Weeks, including calamities that befell the Jewish people in the ancient past as well as in modern times, Anita Tucker shares her story.
Anita's family founded the town of Nezer Hazani in Gush Katif over 35 years ago. Eight years ago, they--together with 10,000 more Jews--were expelled and the land transferred to Arab (Hamas) control.
Anita talks about mourning, yearning, optimism, and faith. She discusses the idea of a time to pray and a time to act. She tells why she isn't angry, although she places the blame on the shoulders of Jews worldwide. She shares her current projects of rebuilding the public buildings that were destroyed without compensation, such as synagogues and community centers, and gives information about how each of us can take part in this rebuilding.
Anita's story, together with Judy's stories of learning gratitude and compassion, are food for thought regarding change in our own lives. Don't miss this show for inspiration during the Three Weeks of Mourning!
