Hundreds of thousands of Israelis have been called up to reserve duty. But what about the families they leave behind? Ariel Markose, a mother of four, shares her perspective on the challenges of protecting the home front.

There’s a lot of uncertainty and we’re all involved in dozens of initiatives but we’re also going to bring you some voices and testimonies that try to paint a picture of these devastating times.
