“My siblings and I hid in the basement while our parents were trying to fight the terrorists. They lost. We are staying with a family now, but they don’t have any clothes in our size. I am going to a new school but I have no school supplies, so I always have to borrow. When Mommy and Tatty were here there was always enough clothes, food, toys. I just keep thinking … how can they be gone?” – Leah*, 10
A group of the Gedolei Yisroel have come together with a message for you, on behalf of kids like Moshe & Leah. This is their statement: [HEBREW BELOW]:
“Our brothers, Bnei Yisroel, who live in the South are suffering enormously. They have been forced to leave their homes behind together with their families.
The cries of hundreds of young boys and girls who were taken out of their familiar surroundings and schools so suddenly are piercing. They are in need of special support for their financial needs, for survival, for schooling, for food and clothes.
Please answer our request Acheinu Bnei Yisroel and save the children who are experiencing a terrible galus and give generous donations.
With G-d’s help the prayers of the young children will be fulfilled like the pasuk says, “From the mouths of babes you found strength for your People, to remove the enemy and take revenge.”
We should soon merit to be saved with an eternal salvation, and G-d should fulfill all your wishes for the good.
