Part 2: Middle East Conflict Tuesday, July 8, 2014 | Sacramento, CA Listen / download audio Update RequiredTo play audio, update browser or Flash plugin. Part 2: Israeli defense forces say missiles from the Gaza Strip have hit Sacramento’s sister city Ashkelon, Israel as militant attacks ramp up in the region. The swell in assaults is in response to the kidnapping and killing of three Israeli teenagers in the West Bank last month and the grisly killing of a Palestinian teenager in Jerusalem last week. But Sacramento Area Jewish leaders say attacks on Israel were on the rise even before the death of the three Israeli teens. Joining us to talk about how Sacramento area Jews are reacting to the rising tension between Israel and the surrounding Palestinian territories is Barry Broad, President of the Board of the Sacramento chapter of the Jewish Federation, and Rabbi Reuvan Taff, a rabbi for the Mosaic Law Congregation.
