Our hearts are shattered at the loss of life and the lives forever impacted by the barbaric actions of terrorists in Israel. We watch with bated breath as the events continue to unfold, and we pray for the safety and well-being of all those we love, and for all of Israel. We stand united with Israel as her soldiers fight against this evil within her own borders and in Gaza. While we grieve this loss, we are mobilizing our community to act on behalf of Israel, her soldiers, and her citizens. We are dedicating this page of our website to providing opportunities to volunteer and donate, resources to stay updated, process what is happening, and communicate about the current reality with one another. Please be in touch with us as we are all in this together.

As for our brothers (and sisters),​ the whole house of Israel, who are given over to trouble or captivity​, whether they abide on the sea or on the dry land

May God have mercy upon them, and bring them forth from trouble to enlargement, from darkness to light, and from subjection to redemption speedily and soon.
