Itamar News June 20th 2008
1. Mazal Tov to Hagar Zar on the marriage of her daughter Shira to Yaakov Cohen from Bat Yam. Baruch Hashem this is Hagar’s third child out of 8 that she is marrying off. Unfortunately, her former husband Gilad was killed in a terrorist attack 6 years ago please see link. Hagar has since remarried and continues to live on Itamar. Enjoy the pictures of the wedding.
2. Dearest friends I have a special request for those interested. Every year Itamar runs a special summer camp program for the children and youth. Unfortunately, the families of Itamar don’t have the means to pay the full cost of the program. If we don’t get help from out friends we will not be able to provide the summer program for the children. It goes without saying that these children, among them orphans, deserve to have a happy summer like other children their age. Anyone, who could help out by sponsoring a child (250 dollars) or to partly sponsor one (125 dollars) will be doing a tremendous Mitzvah! For those who can’t help at this time or have recently helped us Please circulate this e-mail to as many friends as possible. Those who want to find out more about our community send them this link – www.friendsofitamar.org. [total project cost around 15 thousand dollars]
Make out your tax deductible donations to Friends of Itamar and mail them to – Friends of Itamar Attn Lester Goldsmith 1483 East 34th Street Brooklyn NY 11234
