It’s been such a difficult week. Too much to bear.
Just take them all out of hell now. There’s no time left. May we hear some good news this Shabbat. May the hostages return home. May our soldiers come back safely.

Shabbat shalom.

Yes indeed. I pray daily for these people who are down in the darkness of the Pit.

How many innocent Palestinians are held without trial

🎗️📚 Even at the National Library of Israel in Jerusalem, we are reminded of the hostages, prompting us to wonder about their favorite books and what they might be reading. The children’s classics set aside for baby Kfir Bibas and his big brother Ariel break our hearts. In what world are two babies hostages? Who is reading them a bedtime story?

This was one of our final stops on our Innovation and Solidarity Mission, but this place is so much more than just a library. Home to over 4,500,000 books by Israeli and Jewish writers from around the globe, it maps the intrinsic Jewish connection to the land, spanning 3,500 years. Beyond its rich collections, the library is stunning!

Our group stands in front of one of the many connections the library has to Australia: the Robert and Ruth Magid Hall, honoring Doc Evatt, Australia’s Foreign Minister who played a pivotal role in the establishment of the modern State of Israel.

It was a real highlight to be surrounded at every turn by the rich culture of the Jewish people in the land of Israel.
