Dear Friends,

Three dear families lost their every possession yesterday (5/23/19) when a fire devastated the community of Mevo Modi'im in Israel. They included my wife's mother (+ husband), brother (+ wife), and sister (+ husband and 5 children). Today they are struggling to pick up the pieces of their lives, with literally nothing left. When the authorities evacuated this beautiful community, each person grabbed a small bag with the few things they would need for the afternoon while the fire department put out the forest fire nearby. An hour later, the fire had entered their community and destroyed everything. For more detail, see the this article from the Times of Israel .

While we work to figure out the families mid and long-term needs, there are immediate necessities that are our fundraising purpose here. These families are without clothes, rent/home, transportation, toiletries, and other basic items. They can use all the help we can provide. 

For now, we are grateful that no one was hurt and that everyone is staying strong for the rebuilding that awaits. And we are appealing to you - our friends and family - for assistance in getting these wonderful families back onto their feet.

Thank you
