Nadine Essra Fund

Earlier this week Nadine survived a harrowing experience!!  While traveling on the highway from  TelAviv  to her goat farm, just outside of Jerusalem, her car stalled. Luckily she was able to coast to the shoulder of the highway. She hopped out of the car intending to open up the hood of the car to inspect the problem and within seconds her car erupted into flames.  Thankfully, Nadine is OK.  And for that we are very grateful.

Her losses are many, however.  In addition to the car, she lost her computer,  purse, wallet, a week's worth of groceries, bicycle and numerous personal items. She has no comprehensive insurance to cover her losses.

 As an artisan who sells her fine jewelry on Etsy, she has lost access to her livelihood without a computer. It is our hope that with support from friends and loved ones near and far, Nadine can get back on her feet very soon and put this tragic event behind her.
