Count the Omer: Day 11
Day 11: Netzach sheb'Gevurah, Endurance within Strength
This Monday, HBO will air a documentary called 50 Children: The Rescue Mission of Mr. and Mrs. Kraus, which tells the story of an American couple who saved 50 Jewish children from Nazi Germany. Jewish strength in the face of persecution has kept us alive in countless instances throughout history. The Kraus' story is only one of many examples of the strength and bravery that has sustained the Jewish people in perilous times. Through strength, we endure.
