[su_label]Listen to Marcella’s interview on ‘Tova in Israel’s radio show[/su_label]
As a Jew, as someone that truly loves living in Israel, Tova Knecht finds it hard to believe anyone can hate Israel so much. There are terrible anti-semetic, anti-Israel campaigns against Israel. Most notably BDS. How ridiculous to think that people actually believe that nonsense.
It was a breath of fresh air to interview Marcella Van De Bovenkamp. Marcella’s Great-Grandparents saved a Jewish man, Herbert Muller, during the Holocaust. She told me that Tova that she wishes they could have saved more. Tova reassured her that they did what they were meant to do and in fact, saved an entire world. This was evident to her when she met Herbert’s grandchildren. How remarkable!
As if that isn’t inspiring enough, Marcella is also a tremendous advocate for the Jewish people and Israel. As a Christian, she truly believes in the Bible and that the Land of Israel belongs to the Jewish nation. She goes on speaking tours and tries to impress this idea on her audience.
Tova was lucky enough to meet Marcella when she was volunteering in Gush Etzion at the פינה חמה לחיילים בישוב עטרת – pina chama LeChayalim, a place that soldiers go for a warm meal free of cost- made especially for them by volunteers. While there Marcella told me about her incredible story and I thought how wonderful to be able to share it with so many people.
