BUILD THEM BACK: Munder Family needs our support

Tax deductible
On October 7th, 2023, an unspeakable terror attack shook the core of Israel and good people worldwide, leading to Ruth (78), Keren (54) and Ohad (9) being held hostage for 48 harrowing days. During this time, they faced horrors that are beyond words. The tragedy decimated their home, took away beloved members of their close-knit family and community through murder or kidnapping, with many still in captivity.

Finally freed on November 24th, 2023, Ruth, Keren and Ohad now face the long, challenging journey of healing from the deep-seated trauma that will, unfortunately, be a part of their lives forever.

This fund is a beacon of hope dedicated to supporting these brave souls in their quest for healing and rebuilding their shattered lives. Every dollar raised will provide a lifeline of mental and physical support—covering housing, nourishment, clothing, and other essential needs—in the days, months, and years to come as they strive to regain a semblance of normalcy.

About the family

Ruth, a devoted enthusiast of painting, knitting, and sewing, embraced her creative pursuits following a fulfilling career as a hairdresser.

Keren, a respected educator, specializes in supporting children with special needs. Her nurturing spirit also shines as a children's volleyball coach.

Ohad, a gifted young individual, cherishes the camaraderie with his friends and has a keen interest in tennis and soccer. Notably, he's a champion Rubik's Cube solver who also dedicates his leisure time to avian care.

Their grandfather Avraham remains captive, Ruth’s son and Keren’s brother, Roey, was murdered.

Now, more than ever, Ruth, Keren and Ohad need our unwavering support. Every donation, regardless of its size, is a step towards showing Ruth, Keren and Ohad that they are not alone, that we empathize with their pain, and stand firm with them in their fight to rebuild their lives. Let's embrace them with a community of support that resonates with love, hope, and resilience.

All contributions are being managed by the reputable AID Coalition (EIN 93-1616002). Rest assured, every penny will reach the freed hostages (or their legal guardians if minors) or be applied for their benefit (no administrative fees are being retained by AID-Coalition), ensuring that the families receive the support they desperately need.

Let’s reassure them that they are not alone, and that we stand with them, not just through the harrowing time, but through their recovery ordeal as well. Plus, your kind gesture is tax deductible.
