In the backdrop of the fast of Tisha B’Av we can be inspired through those who are working hard in preparation for the rebuilding of the Beit Hamikdash. Ornah Hershberg of Itamar is working on a special research project on weaving the Parochet and other items for the Temple. Those who are interested can come and see it in the makings here.
We would like to give special thanks to Yad Leah again for sending beautiful quality clothing to Itamar. Jessica Katz and her entire family, Karen Thaler and her entire family as well as the tzevet at Yad Leah are bringing the geula with their maaseh chesed and ahavat chinam in providing for their brothers and sisters here and all over Israel in many locations, may Hashem bless them infinitely! Our friends in New Mexico, Sharon Luna and all of working bees who care about doing chesed are also now galvanizing to join this project and add to our gmach. May Hashem bless them abundantly for their amazing hospitality love and care!
A special blessing of thanks also to the Zbaren family of Switzerland who always bring beautiful baby clothing when they come to Israel! Thank you for standing with us!
This week a miracle happened on when our camera system spotted two terrorists that were making their way to our security fence. Itamar’s response team and army responded quickly and apprehended them before they were able to infiltrate.
