A few days from now, thousands of viewing parties are occurring, all
over the planet, for Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Courage” event in
Jerusalem, taking place on Wednesday, August 24 from 10 AM-noon EST. The
Philadelphia area is no exception.

all while imparting the virtue of study and the revered value of each.”
When asked how Beck’s “Restoring Courage” has managed to create
excitement for an event halfway around the world -- and in Israel of all
