Yaakov Shwekey: “The fact that the Jewish nation still exists at all, is of course nothing but a sheer miracle. I am privileged to travel and meet my brothers and sisters all over the world, in communities where Jewish life should be logically impossible. The incredible growth of my fellow Jews around the world is miraculous they are not only existing but thriving as well, that’s the inspiration for WE ARE A MIRACLE.”
