A Mother's Love: Heartbreak and Hope in the Holy Land

Nourish Your Biblical Roots with Yael Eckstein by Charisma Podcast Network

Episode notes

This week, Yael brings us a difficult but necessary conversation, as she welcomes Rachel Goldberg, a Jewish mother in Israel. Rachel’s son, 23-year-old Hersh, was taken hostage by Hamas terrorists during their attacks on October 7. Since that day, Rachel has prayed—along with the Jewish people’s friends around the world—for her son’s safe return.

Yael speaks with Rachel about Hersh—about his life, about the young man he is, about the final evening she spent with her son, and about the difficult moments before his capture—and what she has done in the days since to bring awareness to the situation in Israel and to bring her son home. Most importantly, Rachel shares what has given her hope and strength in the difficult days since her son was taken hostage.
