During our last Or Ami trip to Israel, falling missiles prevented us from visiting S’derot in Southern Israel. Instead, we had a learning session with the father of a S’derot Media educator. He showed us a DVD of what was happening in S’derot. Then, I found the DVD horrible but manipulative. Yet, as Israel is responding to the Gaza missile barrage, I find myself thinking back to these descriptions of the terrible situation living near Gaza.
This video, posted by Yisrael: Struggling with God, offers some perspective. It is a bit long, but watch it until he explains about the concrete caterpillar/bomb shelter.
