Save Lives in Israel
THE HAVURAH RAISED FUNDS TO SEND PROTECTIVE, BULLETPROOF VESTS TO RESERVE SOLDIERS IN ISRAEL! Your generosity saves lives! Now we are rasing funds for a young man, here in Ashland studying at SOU, who has now been called up to join us reserve unit in Israel. He will be serving close to where Gil is serving and also needs protective equipment. Rabbi Emanuel met with him and we will be pruchasing equipment to send with him for his unit. Please keep your donations coming. Rabbi Emanuel Ben-David, an Israeli living here in Ashland and serving the Havurah, received a call for help from his son, Gil, who is in the IDF reserves.
Rabbi Emanuel Ben-David, an Israeli living here in Ashland and serving the Havurah, received a call for help from his son, Gil, who is in the IDF reserves. and is stationed near Ramallah in the West Bank since last Shabbat. The photo below shows Gil and his commander wearing the vests that we purchased with your generous donations.
More than 360,000 Israelis heeded the call to serve and arrived from around the world to protect Israel and Israelis – Jews, Druse, Christians, Bedouins, and Muslims alike. El Al Israel Airlines, for the first time in 44 years, is flying on Shabbat in order to expedite their swift return.
We can contribute our small share by ensuring that these soldiers receive the protection they desperately need to fulfill their mission. By supporting this effort you will be blessed with fulfilling the words of our sages (Mishnah Sanhedrin 4:5): “one who saves a life, saves the entire world.”
Please give generously your tax-deductible donation.. These soldiers are our children!
