Ever since the establishment of the Jewish state, Israeli society has been contending with an unsettled struggle for its existence – fighting wars and ongoing terrorism.

After a terror attack or the end of a war, most people breath a sigh of relief and gradually return to their daily lives. A significant number of others, among them senior citizens, teenagers and children, remain traumatized. Their recollections of flying bombs and exploding Kassam rockets shatters both their physical and emotional wellbeing. Their feeling of personal security is severely damaged, resulting in fear, trauma and bitter disappointment with regard to the state’s ability to protect its citizens. Like open wounds, each flashback reinforces difficult memories, affecting all aspects of the person’s life.
