Federation CJA 360 - August 10, 2018
Israeli jets bombard Gaza with 150 strikes in response to barrage of rockets.

This week’s 360 covers the escalation along the Gaza border, where over 180 rockets have been launched into Israel since Wednesday night, including in our sister city of Beer Sheva. Plus the story of a Montreal woman’s reunion with the grandson of the Dutch family who hid her mother during the Holocaust and a 2,200-year-old gold earring found in Jerusalem. Shabbat Shalom.
