AM YISRAEL CHAI!


Bring the hostages home safely! We stand with Israel. If you are able, we recommend donating directly to the Jewish National Fund or the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County or the Magen David Adom, Israel's version of 'Red Cross'. These organizations have special funds ear-marked to assist those in need in Israel with food, supplies, medical care, relocation, and more. Please help if you can. Wishes for ALL of the hostages to be safely returned to their loved ones. May we be able to create peace and shalom.
