We, the children of the Solomon family, are urgently asking for your help and support. Our parents and two of our brother’s families lost their homes and everything they possessed including our father's entire music studio in the Moshav Mevo Modi’in fire crisis in Israel. They are a total of 6 adults and 8 children:
Benzion & Dina Solomon Yosef & Cookie Solomon and children Sihara, Maya and Eliyah Sruli & Elisheva Solomon and children Elisha, Liel, Odeya, Shirel and Choshen
Video of Cookie and Elisheva returning for the first time since the fire to where their homes had been:
The solomon family has brought the world so much joy and spirit through their Jewish music. For decades they opened their homes to anyone who wished to experience a Carlebach Shabbos on the Moshav and used their common garden for communal musical havdallahs and melaveh malkas.
Sruli Solomon, whose wooden home was consumed completely is Head of Security and has dedicated himself to the Moshav along with his wife Elisheva who served on the Moshav’s council (VA’AD).
Yosef and cookie Solomon had moved into their brand new wooden home, built above our parent’s house, exactly one year ago on the date of the fire. It has vanished, completely consumed by the fire.
They had 15 minutes to leave their homes. They walked out with the clothes on their bodies and that's all. Please help us help them rebuild their lives and continue the holy work they were put here to do.
