A Plea for Kibbutz Kfar Azza

A Plea for Kibbutz Kfar Azza

I am praying, along with the rest of you, for Israel and its people.  I am asking that you consider aiding Kibbutz Kfar Azza, the kibbutz where my son-in-law Gil Amir grew up.  His kibbutz was destroyed in last Saturday’s attack and his friends were killed. Kibbutz Kfar Azza is fighting for its life.  A thriving, tight-knit community of 1000 souls has been decimated, brutally, in less than 48 hours.

Whole families: brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, grandparents and children – murdered, kidnapped, brutalized. Their homes turned to ash, their lives to dust.

These people lost their livelihood, their homes, and everything they own, but more importantly, they lost numerous loved ones to one of the worst terrorist attacks in history.  Those who survived had to barricade themselves for nearly two days before being rescued under fire, with only their clothes on their bodies.

Now is the time to reach out a helping hand to those left behind traumatized and destitute.

This will take time. But our community needs help now and in the coming days and weeks while Israel fends off its enemies in the North and South.

Help us build Kfar Azza back.

Thank you for your generosity and for helping us in these dire times!
