On October 7, as Jews around the world were celebrating Simchat Torah, terrorists crossed into Israel attacking communities across southern Israel. While left reeling from the pain of this tragedy, many of us are wondering, how do we pray during a time such as this? What guidance does the Torah have for us during such tough times?

In the final episode of this 3-part series, Rabbi Dr. Levi Cooper discusses the issue of doomscrolling and addressing the horrific images that have been circulating the internet since the attacks.
