Evening with Rachelle Fraenkel: Interview by Rabbi Pinchas Allouche

This deeply inspiring interview with Rachelle Fraenkel, was conducted by Rabbi Pinchas Allouche, Rabbi of Congregation Beth Tefillah (CBT) in Scottsdale, AZ, during CBT's Gala on Sunday, February 15, 2015.

In this revealing video, Rachelle Fraenkel, (mother of Naftali Fraenkel, who along with his friends Gilad Shaar and Eyal Yifrach, were abducted and brutally murdered in Israel, in the summer of 2014), opens her heart, and speaks with profound honesty, dignity, faith and courage, about her experience during, and after, her son's abduction.

Her words are riveting, her presence - captivating, her message - everlasting. Rachelle has become the 'mother of our nation' and a beacon of light internationally. In 2015, she was elected in the Forward as one of the 50 most influential Jews in the world.

This special interview is a clear testament to this statement.
