Mazal Tov to Larry and Helen Slavin on the Bar Mitzvah of their grandsons. Larry and Helen are very special friends of Itamar that have been standing with our community over a decade. They came all the way from NJ to celebrate the Bar mitzvah of their grandsons in Eretz Yisrael. We wish them a lot of Nachat and only happiness.
We would like to extend a special thanks to Jessica Katz from Yad Sarah in New Jersey for sending yet another shipment of clothes for Itamar and other communities. This has been an amazing blessing and an ideal example of someone living in chutz laaretz (outside of Israel) with a huge heart for Israel and bringing it into a practical realm of help.

Itamar and its surroundings is the only frontier in the central portion of the county that has remains rural and somewhat preserved. It is blessed with a lot of wild life and beautiful nature. A few days ago a deer was found caught in a hunter’s trap that broke its leg. Unfortunately, the villagers nearby hunt the deer and are not concerned about the terrible pain they are causing to these delicate animals. The deer was removed from the trap and the nature reserve was called in to evacuate the animal to a hospital to try and save its life.
