As the attacks on Orthodox Jews continued to increase last year, during my winter break trip to Israel, I thought it would be a perfect chance for our Olympic Orthodox Jewish All Star, Bat-El Gatterer to teach our viewers some self-defense through her sport, Tae Kwondo.
We spent a few weeks editing the video and just as we were about to release it, attacks on Jews were replaced by a pandemic lockdown.
I told our staff, sadly this video won’t go to waste. When it becomes safe to go outside again, the attacks will begin again. With 6 Orthodox Jews attacked in the last two weeks, we felt the time to release a self-defense video once again was ripe. May you never need to use this.
