Valley Chabad will screen a new documentary, “With My Whole Broken Heart,” on Tisha B’Av, Sunday, August 14, at 7:30 p.m.
The film, produced by the Rohr Jewish Learning Institute, tells the stories of two Jewish teenagers who were hiking near their homes in Israel in 2001 when they were stoned to death by Palestinian terrorists. A few months later, those murders were followed by the kidnapping and murder of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl.
The film features interviews with Daniel Pearl’s parents, Ruth and Judea Pearl, and Sherri Mandell, the mother of Koby Mandell, who was 13 when he was killed.
The 45-minute documentary also follows the lives of two of the youngest survivors of Auschwitz and Buchenwald, Rabbi Yisrael Meir Lau, former Israeli chief rabbi, and Rabbi Nissan Mangel, an author and rabbi in Brooklyn. For information, go to Valleychabad.org or call (201) 476-0157.
