Date released: 10/20/2022

In the Jewish tradition, it is believed that “whoever saves one life, saves the world entire.” Every parent on earth will recognize this is not just an ancient tradition but undeniable truth. And we often hear stories of Israel saving worlds. Those afflicted by disease might have a breakthrough due to Israeli technology. Others impacted by disaster might again see the sunrise because of Israel’s exceptional emphasis on serving as the world’s first responder.

After meeting with doctors, he and his family faced two temporary – at best – options. But then, the miracle they had prayed for happened—and it was coming from Israel.
