The national existence of the Jewish people revolves around the question – what is an Am. In this special Independence Day episode, Rav Mike takes a look at the history and theology behind Jewish national embodiment.
Rabbis Ari Abramowitz and Jeremy Gimpel share an insiders experience of the most intense time of the Hebrew Year. Tune in to hear the roller-coaster of emotions that take Israelis from the graves of their loved ones to celebrating the happiest national celebration, when Israel won her independence again!
Rabbanit Chana Henkin is Founder and Dean of Nishmat, The Jeannie Schottenstein Center for Advanced Torah Study for Women. She and her husband Rabbi Yehuda Henkin forged the way for the ‘yoetzot Halacha’ (learned women giving advice on Jewish law) and completely raised the level of women’s involvement and influence in all areas of Jewish life. The State of Israel recognized her extraordinary contribution by choosing her to light one of the torches to open celebrations of our 69th Independence Day this week.
But first comes Memorial Day, when we commemorate our fallen, including her brilliant son Rabbi Eitam and his wife Na’ama, murdered by terrorists in front of their 4 young children 19 months ago. She explains to Eve that her faith was not affected, but the pain and loss is palpable. As with all births, modern Israel is great suffering mixed with incalculable joy and many miracles.
May Hashem give His people strength and bless us with peace.
ה׳ עוז לעמו יתן; ה׳ יברך את עמו בשלום
