Antisemitism around the world has risen to heights not seen since Nazi Germany.  A rabbi was gunned down in cold blood on his way to synagogue by antisemites this last week. This happened in America, the place where many Jews today think, "It can't happen here".  
University campuses are flooded with antisemitism disguised as anti-Zionism.  
America is bankrupt, and when the economy crashes, guess who is going to be blamed... -the Jews. 
If we don't learn from our past, we are doomed to repeat it.

But G-d is not going to send you a personal telegram telling you it is time to come home. He tells us through the news paper headlines, He tells us through the Bible, and it is time to wake up ...and one such couple did... and heeded the call.

Meet Malachi and Tanya Ben Yehuda, an African American couple from Riverdale who converted to Judaism (Orthodox) and decided that Israel was their home, rockets or no rockets, wars or no wars.  They settled in the beautiful resort city of Ashkelon, filled with beaches and biblical history.  They live in an apartment right across from the sea and are settling in beautifully, and they have something they want to tell you.  Tamar interviews this inspiring couple who in their 50's left their home and community, their family and their comforts and came to live in Israel, a state currently under war. An inspiring interview you won't want to miss.
