Amazing: Haredi Soldier's Reunion With His Catholic Mom From Columbia

What a great story.

A young, Catholic fellow named Diego Tapia, from Columbia, felt that he belonged to the Jewish people after reading a few Jewish texts when he was university aged. He traveled to Israel to study in Yeshiva and began a three-year long conversion process.

His mom and sister were secretly flown to Israel for his graduation ceremony.

The Rabbi who organized it said there wasn't a dry eye in the house and that their reunion was one of the most emotionally wonderful moments of his life.
