CLICK HERE TO HELP THE RESIDENTS OF OFAKIM

The residents of the southern Israeli town of Ofakim used to be regular, suburban folks. Living through the October 7th massacre has changed their lives forever.

Many saw loved ones and family members murdered in front of them. Others are still fighting for their lives in the hospital. Young women lost husbands, children lost mothers. Their pain is unfathomable.

Beyond the grief, they are now living a logistical nightmare as well. Having fled the blood-soaked ghost town, residents of Ofakim are living scattered through communities further North. Many are living in empty apartments, with no mattresses, no sheets, no clothing, no toiletries, no food. Additionally, many are out of work or just lost their family’s provider, leaving them in dangerous levels of poverty.

Two respected and beloved rabbis, Rav Mordechai Gross and Rav Chaim Feinstein, have written an urgent letter to the public asking for donations to help the people of Ofakim. Any and all help is deeply appreciated by those who have just lived through what many are calling the worst massacre since the Holocaust.
