Mass arson swept through Israel in November, 2016 , leaving 566 families whose homes were completely destroyed
That arson has disappeared from any news coverage, anywhere, leaving people to assume that people who lost their worldly possessions to arson have been “taken care of”.
Yet the ashes of the November arson simmer, especially with families who face a total loss of their homes and all of their belongings.
These families cope with a new reality, which is that even if they collect something from insurance or the Israel Ministry of Defense, their losses will hardly be recovered, let alone the strain that they now experience.
The time has come for each synagogue in Israel or abroad to consider sponsorship of at least one family who rendered homeless from arson.
The sponsoring synagogue would help each family in their time of need, economically and spiritually, as each family looks to a better day.
As an experienced community organizer with a degree in social work, I offer my services as a “shadchan” between arsoned families and synagogues willing to sponsor a family at this time.
I will put the family directly in touch with the synagogue.
People are welcome to help me in this task.
All aid will go directly to the arsoned families, with no go-betweens. .
Do you know of a synagogue willing to sponsor a family whose home was arsoned?
This is a request for 566 shuls to sponsor 560 families during their recovery.
