The Pain and Privilege of Being a Mother in Israel (Tisha B'Av 2013)

Susie Weiss

Torah in Motion sponsors programming for Tisha B'Av annually. Our program enables one to truly understand and feel the losses that we experienced, and sharpens our ability to focus on the mourning required on this day.

A mother who made aliyah with her family shares the complex mix of immense pride and devastating grief that she felt when her son, IDF Sergeant Ari Yehoshua Weiss, was killed fighting for Israel.
