The sweet musical Moshav I grew up on has burnt to the ground.
My family was given fifteen minutes to evacuate, they took their passports, and ran.
My mother’s home, the one she has lived in since we first moved to the Moshav 30 years ago, is gone.
My two sisters’ homes are also gone.
They are in a shelter now, collecting food and clothes from a donation center.
It is not easy to be vulnerable and ask for help, but I am coming to you, my community, with the hopes that I can help to raise the funds my family will need to stabilize.
My mother, in particular, is ill and will need support. My two sisters have young children. They will each need to rebuild, everything, from the ground up. I am asking for your support at this time.
Specifically, your contributions will go towards rebuilding their homes, purchasing basic furniture and appliances.
If it helps for your donation to be tax deductible, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and she can let you know how to send that money through one of the local synagogue relief funds that have been set up for my family.
Thank you for your support and love at this time
