Why We Weep

The eyes of the world are fixed upon the Jewish people. We have competed with the greatest empires in history. Where are they and where are we? We appear in the headlines of all forms of news media, and we are on the lips of world leaders daily. Like it or not, We are relevant.

Ohr Somayach presents the worlds greatest Jewish thinkers in our generation who explain why our eyes, filled with tears, are fixed upon Jerusalem and ask, "Why We Weep".
