Urgent Call for Support: Stand with Israel Now

Monday 15 April 2024

“He who keeps of Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.”

Psalm 121:4

Dear Friends,

In the early hours of April 14th, a formidable threat emerged from the horizon as Iran launched an unprecedented assault on Israel. With 331 UAVs, drones, ballistic and cruise missiles fired from 1500 kilometers away, our night skies were filled with more than just stars—they bore witness to a potential catastrophe.

Yet, as dawn broke, we were met not with devastation but with relief and a profound sense of gratitude. Our advanced defense systems, including the Iron Dome, David's Sling, the Arrow, and the Patriot missile system, alongside valiant efforts from Israeli pilots and crucial support from the USA, the United Kingdom’s Royal Air Force, and Jordan, intercepted 99% of these threats. Miraculously, despite the scale of this aggression, no lives were lost, though one young soul—a 7-year-old Bedouin girl—fights bravely for her life against severe injuries.

This incident, while a testament to our resilience, is a stark reminder of the ongoing threats we face. Notably, Hezbollah did not engage in this attack, yet their presence—a proxy terror army funded by Iran with over 150,000 rockets—is a looming danger we cannot ignore.

In these moments of trial, we are reminded of these words:

"That which stood for our ancestors applies to us as well. For it was not only one individual who stood up against us to destroy us. Rather, in every generation they stand up against us to destroy us. But the Holy One, Blessed Be He, redeems us from their hands." – Passover Haggadah

Today, as Israel's war cabinet contemplates our response and the world watches, with President Biden convening an urgent G7 meeting, we must not grow complacent. Our preparedness is our protection. Just two weeks ago, I met with the IDF's civil home front command team, who highlighted a dire need for 1,000 additional shelters along our northern borders to safeguard our communities against potential future assaults.

This Passover, as we celebrate deliverance and freedom, let us also commit to the safety and security of our people. Nearly 100,000 Israelis have been displaced, their homes under threat from relentless attacks. They deserve to return to a life of safety and peace.

We urgently call upon you, our cherished donors and partners, to help us meet this critical need for bomb shelters. Your generosity can shield lives and provide comfort to those who currently reside in the shadow of threat.

Please make a heartfelt donation today to aid in installing these vital shelters HERE.

As we reflect on the miracles of past and present, let us forge a future secured not only by miracles but by the collective action and unwavering spirit of our global community.

“The Lord will fight for you, and you will be silent.”

Exodus 14:14

With deepest gratitude and hope for peace,

Barry & Batya
