You'll meet attorney Yehuda Tatelbaum who organized a group to take all kinds of items to waiting forces. Listen to my dear wife Rivkah who organized a cookie baking resulting in 400 cookies brought to the front line. Be amazed by Batsheva and Yaakov Goldman, whose website enables anyone to get names of soldiers to pray for. You'll enjoy Marc Rosenbluth whose pizza shop has sent 200 pizzas to the front lines with 200 more to go this week ( Get to know Brian Hoffman, radio personality in Baltimore, who couldn't stay away from Israel and came during a war against the advice of friends. And appreciate Rabbi Elchonon Oberstein, whose son Yoni has been called as a reservist, and hear his take on what it's like to be a parent of a soldier, and what he would say to the entire IDF if he could address them. And thanks to Jack from New Jersey for his call to remind us exactly who we are dealing with, and why this is a biblical battle.
