Elizabeth Naftali

October 30, 2023

In this interview, Liz Naftali talks about her harrowing experience being awoken by the sound of a bomb-raid on Saturday morning, October 7th, and hearing the news of the attack in southern Israel. One of the first things Liz did was reach out – she discovered the horrible truth that her niece and husband had been killed. Already a tragedy. But it did not stop there, Liz’s nephew was also murdered by Hamas terrorists while trying to save a three-year old child before they could flee the chaos. 

Despite the pain, Liz refused to let the experience and heartache embitter her and she speaks in an outpouring of emotion how hate has no borders and, that, despite the efforts of some to split communities apart and sow division based on ethnicity, religion, or geography we must always keep our hearts and minds open to love.

While the initial attack on Israel is over, hundreds remain as captives of Hamas trapped in Gaza, far from their own families and loved ones.
