This week we sat down and spoke with Yossi Landau from ZAKA. Founded in 1995, ZAKA’s volunteers arrive at the scene with one mission: to recover the bodies of those who die in an unnatural way. In Judaism, a person must be buried whole.
ZAKA’s crews work tirelessly to recover as many body parts as they can from the scenes they are called to. It’s considered the greatest mitzvah a Jew can perform for another person.
Yossi Landau has been with the organization for 33 years and has been all over the world. Yossi was a first responder on October 7th. In this episode he tells us what he experienced. (Viewers discretion is advised.)
