Israeli Officer Recovers Jewish Holy Books in Florida Condo Rubble
Col. Golan Vach and his crew worked alongside local rescuers to locate the bodies of a Jewish couple buried in the debris where the Champlain Towers South condo once stood, the Miami Herald reported.
As he gathered their personal belongings Tuesday, Vach noticed that many of the books he came across were from the Talmud, the central text of Rabbinic Judaism and the primary source of Jewish religious law.
Commenters around the globe took note of the symbolism of rescuers saving holy texts amid the tragedy, in which the death toll Thursday stood at 54, with 86 people still unaccounted for. (NY Post / VFI News)
