Rabbi Mitchell Wohlberg was about to deliver a sermon as part of a normally cheerful Jewish holiday celebration when word came that the “unthinkable” had happened: The militant group Hamas launched a broad-scale attack, sending thousands of missiles and groups of fighters into Israel, killing and kidnapping people by the hundreds. Wohlberg did something he’d never done in more than 50 years of public speaking: he tossed his notes and spoke off the cuff. He implored listeners last weekend to accept that such an attack is in Hamas’ nature.
