Mazal tov, Daniel Pereg!


Bookmark and Share

I can’t remember the last time a video made me cry that hard. Watching Daniel Pereg, the 16-year-old boy who stood up to an angry Arab anti-Israel mob in LA as he walked down the street holding an Israeli flag high and proud, was so phenomenally moving.

And the video of Daniel didn’t only move me. Daniel Pereg’s bravery and idealism were so awe-inspiring that since June over 780,000 people have watched the video featuring him YouTube.

And this week, Daniel decided to return his body to the place where his heart has already been for many years. This week, 16-year-old Daniel Pereg arrived with a one-way ticket to Israel. He is planning on studying in a yeshiva in Jerusalem and then joining the army when he turns 18. In the army, Daniel would like to serve in Intelligence, where he hopes his knowledge of Persian will be an asset in gathering intelligence on Iran.

Mazal tov, Daniel! Welcome home!
