      How Diaspora Jews Can Help

      Jewish brothers and sisters the world over - now is the time to unite behind the brave Jews of Israel. Even though you are far away from the “red alert” sirens and falling rockets, you can help the war effort by canceling your winter vacations to the Caribbean, to Disney World, to Hawaii, to Aspen, to Florence and the South of France.

      Instead of skiing down snow-packed slopes in your Calvin Klein ski suits, and bronzing your Coppertoned bodies on crystal white beaches, donate your vacation funds to the Israel Defense Forces, or to the Almagor Victims of Terror Organization, or to the many other worthy charities working round the clock to provide relief for the Israelis under bombardment in the cities bordering Aza.

      Already, after five days, the war has cost the government of Israel close to 3 billion shekels. Just as the Jewish People in Israel are undergoing a time of self-sacrifice in order to insure the future of the Jewish Nation in Israel, we call upon you to sacrifice too. If Diaspora Jews give up their expensive winter vacations to the Caribbean, to Disney World, to Hawaii, to Aspen, to Florence and the South of France, the money contributed to Israel could provide the Israeli Defense Forces with enough fuel, bombs, and reserve manpower  to annihilate the terrorist haven in Aza, once and for all, and thus make Israel a truly safe haven for all the world’s Jews.

      Now is your chance to join in the battle! Don’t ask what Israel can do for you – ask what you can do for Israel!
