It was a full month ago that 3,000 Hamas terrorists infiltrated Israeli communities and murdered 1,400 of its citizens with a brutality and cruelty that is beyond human comprehension.

This event plunged Israel into a war for its very survival, and nothing remains the same. All over the world Jewish people are under attack by those who celebrate the inhuman savagery of the terrorists, and turn a blind eye to the suffering of the hundreds, including babies and children, that have been kidnapped and are being held hostage in the terror enclave of Gaza.

In this week’s Jerusalem Lights podcast, Jim Long and Rabbi Chaim Richman provide updates and insight, connecting these days with the themes of this week’s Torah portion of Chayei Sarah: the sanctity of life, the continuation, hope and legacy of the family unit…and our unshakeable faith in the Creator of the Universe.
