The Power of Shma Yisrael

Throughout the history of Am Yisrael, other nations have tried all manner of ways to separate Jews from their faith. To annihilate a nation destined to continue until the coming of Moshiach and beyond.

During the Holocaust, various churches hid Jewish children and tried to indoctrinate them with their beliefs and practices. After the Holocaust, R.. Yosef Kahaneman zt'l began looking for Jewish children who had survived the war. It was known that some of the children had ended up in churches and were being raised as Christians. He encountered one church that denied the existence and presence of Jewish children within their midst... He was granted permission to enter the children's quarters to inspect for himself -- when he entered he began calling out "Shema Yisroel" and instinctively many of the children raised their hands to cover their eyes and started calling out "mama! mama!"

This moving video portrays this story in powerful visual images merged with an emotive song. It speaks for itself and one message is clear, the education of Jewish children by their mothers is more ingrained than anyone can imagine.
