Greeting Shabbat on a Positive Note-and HH #279
In my previous post I presented a short synopsis of some events in the news, and I wanted to end the week with a bit more spiritual depth upon which to reflect, today, on the approach of Shabbat.
Here is a video, the fifth in a series on the Israeli settlers (who are considered by some to be right-wing extremists and Arab-haters) called The Other Side (hat tip Daled Amos), which tells their story, of why they settled in Judea and Samaria (the so-called "West Bank") and about what they go through in order to live there. It also shows the resilience of these citizens of Israel, their unshaken faith, and their desire to create good from evil--in this case, helping the traumatized Jewish children of terrorist attacks.
Shabbat Shalom (h/t Rafi for the video).
