I know you are busy but….22.07.2014

Dear friend,
I know you are busy but…
For the last few weeks we have all been watching the devastating news from Israel and Gaza.
The situation is far from easing, and the fear, loss of life, and pain is greater with each day. We’ve seen the debate and conversation about the war slip to new levels of hatred, racism and anti-Semitism, deeply lacking in compassion on all sides. In times of crisis we retreat to tribal lines, lending our unquestioning support to whichever team we feel a …

Dear friend,
At this time of crisis for the Jewish People, your support is more vital than ever.
Three days ago the people of Israel buried Eyal Yifrah, Gilad Shaar and Naftali Fraenkel, following their horrific kidnapping and murder. Yachad stood side by side the rest of the community in mourning, at a solidary vigil for the families on Wednesday evening.
