On today’s Israel Uncensored with Josh Hasten an interview with Rabbi Natan Alexander. Rabbi Alexander along with his wife and children were one of the 15 families expelled from Gush Etzion’s Netiv Ha’avot neighborhood in Elazar this past week per a High Court ruling. While Alexander is grateful for the love he has felt from friends and neighbors this past week, his request to the world is not to forget Netiv Ha’avot on the 8th day following the expulsion. As he explains, when a Jew finishes the seven-day mourning period, surrounded by the warmth and support of family and friends, it is that 8th day when life ‘goes back to normal’ that is the hardest. Rabbi Alexander asks that instead of acting ‘business as usual,’ friends of Israel should pressure their leaders and elected officials to make sure that the government of Israel fulfills its promise to rebuild Netiv Ha’avot along with another 350 planned units thus turning this misery into joy.

The Nation of Israel was in mourning this week after burying 10 high-school students who were killed in a Judean Desert flash flood this past Thursday. In a country this tiny, the tragedy affected nearly everyone. But how does one explain this act of G-d, which tore apart 10 families? On today’s Israel Uncensored, Josh Hasten in search for spiritual clarity and a way to cope, discusses this calamity with renowned educator Rabbi Natan Alexander. Rabbi Alexander says that he has never encountered another nation on earth, which comes together to offer such support to one another during times of immeasurable sorrow. In the second part of the program, after switching gears, Rav Natan talks about his online resource ravnatan.com, which is an educational tool helping to enhance family relationships in order to bring peace and passion to one’s life.
