Deep in the Heart
The Groom Who Went to War, Aharon Karov
Rabbi Zeev Karov, Zeev Karov
Rabbi Zeev Karov describes the moments of joy only a father can have on his son's wedding day. Soon after the wedding, his son, Aharon, is called up for duty and leaves to fight for his nation. While fighting, Aharon suffers traumatic injuries from an explosion. Although doctors are sure he will not survive, Aharon defies the odds and overcomes an incredible obstacle. This book is the heartwarming story of an individual who enthusiastically and selflessly jumps into the fray without concern for personal benefit and a nation that rises to a very difficult occasion with grace and extraordinary solidarity. While bringing in proverbs, scripture, and Jewish history to support the actions taken before and after the explosion, Rabbi Karov also uses similar tactics to reinforce his faith and belief in God while his son recovers. Deep in the Heart is about hope and about the faith that has kept the Jewish people alive to this very day.
