This year, the modern state of Israel will celebrate its 70th birthday. In honor of this milestone, Yael comes to us from the Holy Land to discuss not only the anniversary's importance, but what the Bible says about the number 70.
Teaching My Children to Mourn a Temple They Never Saw

I tell them that the broken world we live in is unacceptable. It is not the way things should be and it is not the way things always will be.
