Another way one can be connected with Israel is to keep up with what is going on here. When the campaign “Protective Edge” began, we were touched by emails from some of our friends, informing us that they had downloaded an app on their phone so that whenever we received a rocket attack, they would be notified. This would prompt them to pray for us and Israel and to stay up-to-date with what was going on here.
My Mom, who does not have internet or television, found a radio station which has owners who are very pro-Israel and give up-to-the-minute information about what is going on here.
There are several news outlets, with an internet presence in English, one can read to get the news from Israel, including Arutz7, Haaretz, Ynet and the Jerusalem Post.
It is not only important to keep up with the news regarding “Protective Edge”, but also other news such as our water supply, politics, and social issues.
