We begin this week praising Hashem for the safe release of the captives held at Congregation Beth Israel in Texas.
Of course, this would not have been possible without the help of the various men and women of several law enforcement agencies who risked their lives to bring the hostages to safety. Perhaps equally inspiring is how quickly those throughout the Jewish world gathered to form vigils and pray for an end to the crisis. The JTA has an inspiring article about this if you would like to read more.
