Orphan’s cries make for wrenching memorial service for Brooklyn rabbi and wife murdered in Mumbai

This headline caught my attention and the story broke my heart.

The 2 year old boy literally cried out during the memorial “Abba!”

Read the story below and pray for the families who have been deeply impacted by this great tragedy. May we weep with those who weep and cry out for the freedom of creation and our full redemption (Rom 8:18-24).
