Shabat Nachamu Without Rockets

Give families suffering from rocket fire in southern Israel a peaceful Shabbat retreat in a Jerusalem hotel.    

Attention: Besides this online campaign we have already raised $6000 directly through Jerusalem fellowships! 

Families in Southern Israel are being tortured living under rocket fire. This Shabbat Nachamu, Aug. 8th, help them enjoy a Shabbat of nechama (comfort), peace and healing. Project Nachamu Ami with the partnership of Aish HaTorah Jerusalem Fellowships aims to bring families from Southern Israel to hotels in Jerusalem for a peaceful Shabbat retreat. You and other Friends of Israel from all over the globe can adopt a family from Southern Israel and give that family a Shabbat retreat in Jerusalem which will be a true Shabbat Nachamu (of comfort). The complete cost to sponsor a family (including hotel and meals) from Southern Israel to a full Shabbat Nachamu retreat in Jerusalem is $475 - any size donation is appreciated. The more money we raise, the more families we will bring and any additional money will be used to bring additional families the following Shabbat.

Two exciting new developments: 

1) Old City residents heard about what we are doing and are volunteering to move out of their apartments so we can host even more families (in addition to those who will be staying in Hotels)

2) There will be a giant "Unity Shalosh Seudot" (third meal) at a banquet hall across from the Western Wall, where Jerusalem residents will be invited to join the visiting families and show their love and support to the families of southern Israel. 

Aish Jerusalem Fellowships is a non-profit 501c and all donations are tax deductable.
