Itamar News Updates April 17th 2015
We want to take this opportunity to thank our dear friend Alan Hirsch – who deserves the title “The Big Daddy of Yehudah and Shomron”. Alan and his many supporters have been helping for years over 1400 families throughout Judea and Samaria enjoy their Passover Holiday by providing them with their basic holiday needs – like Matzo, wine, meat and chicken and food coupons. Let us bless Alan and “The Matzoh Fund”and all those who have been so kind to support this important cause. This should be in memory of Jerry Pasternak, zt”l who was poel beseter and a major contributor to the cause- may it be for many many merits!
Itamar enjoyed literally thousands of visitors who came to tour the community over the holiday. A special welcome to our dear friends Michael and Elana Fischberger, The Levine Family and David and Hannah Fischberger.
This week Holocaust Day was commemorated on Itamar with an amazing story of a holocaust survivor – Leah Eckstein. Leah came with her family to Itamar – it was great to see four generations – daughter, granddaughter, and great granddaughter in one room. Leah managed to saw a hole around the lock of her wagon train and jumped off the train while on the way to Auschwitz. An amazing story of survival and continuation!
