After the Bombing: Tel Aviv 14 Heshvan 5755

By Michael Graetz

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, November 11, 1994

The author describes his reactions to violent attacks against his (Israeli) fellow citizens, including both attacks of war during the Yom Kippur War, and a 1994 terrorist attack in Tel Aviv. While he feels a powerful urge to strike back in violence, the author quotes Deuteronomy 30:19 ("life and death I have set before you, the blessing and the curse, choose life so that you and your children may live") and draws inspiration to try to respond to violence with prayer instead of with more violence.
