Miriam Peretz: Heartbreak, Healing and Hope

Miriam Peretz lost her oldest son, Lieutenant Uriel Peretz, who was killed in southern Lebanon while serving in the IDF. Miriam’s second son Eliraz, joined the Golani Brigade, the same unit his deceased brother had served in. In 2010, serving on the Gaza border, Major Eliraz Peretz was killed. Their mother Miriam Peretz has become a symbol of faith and perseverance for millions within Israel and around the world.

Declaring a State

The Quorum That Changed Jewish History

Thursday, May 13th, 1948. A day which would alter the course of Jewish destiny.

During those turbulent times, as the leader of the Zionist movement, David Ben-Gurion had to grapple with several critical dilemmas.

Should an independent Jewish state be declared at this challenging time in Jewish history or should they accept the American proposition of a three-month ceasefire? Would such a declaration immediately plunge the nascent state into a fatal war? Could the small army of so many Holocaust survivors triumph against the might of the Arab world?

Learn about how Ben-Gurion, Rabbi Yehudah Leib Maimon, the leader of Mizrachi, and others, had the courage to declare the State of Israel.

The Power of Rachel’s Tears

What’s the point of feeling sad on Tisha B’Av? Is the goal just to wallow in the past and mourn over things we can’t change? Or is there more to it than that? What if mourning can actually be a redemptive and even a transformative experience?

In this inspiring video by Aleph Beta, Rabbi David Fohrman offers an exhilarating answer to this question based on Rachel Imenu. When she wept for her children, God listened. Watch to discover what Rachel’s story can teach us about using suffering as a catalyst for growth, on Tisha B’Av and every day of the year.

How Is 17 Tammuz Relevant Today

In partnership with Aleph Beta.

The 17th of Tammuz is the tragic start to the Three Weeks, a period of intense mourning that culminates with Tisha B’av – the day the Temple was destroyed. And if that’s not enough, the Mishna lists even more calamities that took place on the 17th of Tammuz. Is it just a coincidence that all these terrible moments happened on the same day? Is the 17th of Tammuz just the Israelites’ bad luck day, or is there a common theme that runs throughout the events of this day?

Join Aleph Beta as we explore this tragic day in Jewish History and discover how these past events can have significant implications on our lives today.
