This proud father takes a moment to thank God for the miracle of his son’s service in the military of an independent Jewish state.

There is a special prayer in Judaism that one recites upon experiencing miracles, which is generally reserved for rare awe-inspiring occasions.

Rabbi Mordechai Becher, however, maintains that if we take time to think about the improbability of the existence of a Jewish state, with its own military to protect the children of Israel, we would realize that this is in fact a miracle!

Rabbi Becher does just that, reflecting on the miracle of his son’s service as a paratrooper in the IDF.
