My sweet Oria,
Do you play where you are?
Are you hungry? Are you cold? Do you still have your blanket? The one wrapped around you when they dragged you away?
At night, does anyone sing you a song? In the morning, does anyone give you a kiss?
Will I ever hold you in my arms again?
These are the tortured thoughts of a mother whose child was stolen by Hamas on October 7th. It is pain beyond comprehension.
Our volunteer organization, Loshon HaRa Lo Medaber Elai, is raising funds here to help the families of the hostages. Donations will go toward grocery bills, rent, clothing, and other basics needed during this unthinkable time.
For each donation, “Loshon Hara Lo Medaber Elai (Don’t speak loshon hara to me)” bracelets will also be distributed to soldiers, to continue to spread the mitzvah of shemiras haloshon during the war. The soldiers have happily embraced this mitzvah and you can take part in this huge kiddush Hashem.
1 bracelet – $12
10 bracelets – $89
100 bracelets – $880
Please give what you can, to help the families of the hostages, and to continue to give support to our soldiers. And in the merit of your donation, and the merit of the powerful mitzvah of shemiras haloshon, we should see the hostages home safe soon.
This Isn’t Just Charity,
