Israeli society has been torn apart since the recent election, and the verbal venom and hate legislation in the government and Knesset are unprecedented.

Here are 5 minutes of encouragement, filmed 45 minutes after the bris, with emuna baby Eitan Michael Eliya Aharoni in my arms helping me to spread the message of emuna:
Here's an important message for a bullied child or adult, or anyone who feels like an underdog, filmed at the holy gravesite of King David in Jerusalem. Shabbat Shalom!
