This summer Israelis were forced from their homes, and into bomb shelters and locations further south, as katyusha rockets rained down on northern Israel. With Israel once again under attack, world Jewry looked on in frustrated despair and searing pain, doing and giving as they could. The streets of the north are once again filling with the hustle and bustle of daily routines, and in sharp contrast to the images we posted here in July life has now returned to Tsfat.
But your help is still needed. Show your support for Israel and give strength to her people. Participate in the OU’s Biennial Convention, to be held in Israel this November, and join us as we travel to the north to see its beauty, give and gain encouragement from its citizens, and do our part to help it rebuild. It’s just one of the many reasons to attend this year’s convention.
