Difficult days are upon Israel with the recent events of the kidnapping of the three yeshiva boys in Gush Etzion. We are all praying for their quick and safe return. Representatives of our community including our youth movement went this week to give chizuk to the families and communities affected by this atrocity. They distributed yogurt made here on Itamar and shared prayers and hugs. It goes without saying that where ever we go people are just so touched when they hear that the people of Itamar, who have experienced similar situations are going out to strengthen others.
Itamar is preparing for the Summer with a special focus this year on the building of a man made spring and wading pond built and designed by our youth. We also plan to prepare picnic grounds that include lanes and gardens for your enjoyment when you come to visit! A very very special thank you goes out to Eddie Wunch and the Anshey Chesed Community of the 5 towns who have been assisting in the budget for our summer youth programs for over a decade now. Thank you too to all of those who join in this very important act of chesed for our kids.
