Programme 336: Leah Ortiz
Recently I visited the town of Ariel in central Israel to meet Leah Ortiz. From an American Jewish family, Leah and her husband David came to live in Israel in 1989. In 2008 their son Ami was seriously injured when a bomb hidden in a basket of fruit by their door exploded in his face. Thankfully he survived, but for David and Leah this was a defining moment in their lives… should they leave the work they had started and return to America, or stay in Israel?
