Miriam Peretz speaks to Israel Awareness Commission

On October 24th Miriam Peretz came to speak to the students of the Israel Awareness Commission. Miriam Peretz lost two of her sons, who dedicated their lives to defending Israel. Both her children took pride in being Jewish and used their belief in G-d to keep them from fearing war. Both children from a young age, said that they would set out to help their brothers with the power that G-d gave them. Mrs. Peretz's point was to show us, the same way that her children dedicated their lives and died in the army protecting Israel, we the children of the next generation must also dedicate ourselves to Israel. Although she did not advocate us to join the army, she did say that we must advocate for Israel. Sometimes words are more powerful than actions.
