Another terror attack happened in Jerusalem this week, as an official from the Palestinian Authority security forces shot a civilian and an IDF solider. Both survived, but the attacker was killed. It was two months ago this week that an Israeli couple was gunned down in their car while driving with their four children. That attack set off the current wave of terrorism throughout Israel.
Also this week in Israel in the News:
• Israel expressed its condolences to the victims and their families of the recent shooting in San Bernadino, California, where 14 died.
• Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke at the U.N. Global Warming summit in Paris, saying Israel will be a global leader in addressing climate change.
• The Fellowship has launched a new emergency security program for Jewish communities in Paris.
• Israel is working with The United Arab Emirates to develop renewable energy.
This week’s Israel in the News Perspective features The Fellowship’s founder and President Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein on lessons we can learn from Hanukkah.
