After losing so many of
my family in the Holocaust
Because in every generation of the Jewish people we have had to move countries because of anti-Semitism
It is all around us, even today
Even outside my home a few weeks ago
My kids go to a Jewish Day School where before the get on their school buses, the buses are checked for bombs
My kids go through drills at school in the event of a suicide bomber attack
My kids have giant walls and security gates around their school to protect them from an attack.
My kids have to be trained what to do in the event of a terrorist attack.
My kids are guarded by security guards every day
When we go to the synagogue we have to go through metal detectors
When we go to a communal function we have to go through metal detectors
Our bags are checked
But thank G-d that today we have Israel
