"32%"

There is great joy at living in the Land. As you know from reading our posts, we are eternally grateful that we are allowed to be part of this marvelous life here. Even though we try to keep our posts about the positive side, there are of course negatives. One of these is the fact that there are abused children. One would hope that in the "Holy Land' all would be 'holy'. But it is not.

Because of what has come to our attention about the children, we cannot sit idly by and pretend that bad situations do not exist. We also know that we cannot 'do' nothing.   Our commission from Torah is to take care of those who cannot take care of themselves~ especially the fatherless and the widows.There are many children in need throughout Israel, but we have chosen the boys of Re'ut Boy's Home.

Tomorrow night at midnight, our fund-raising campaign will end. We will continue to help the boys in practical matters, but the raising of funds for the new kitchen will be over. We so very much appreciate those who have donated and brought us to 32% of our goal.

We are touched, as we look at the people who gave, how many are on a fixed lower incomes. It stirs our hearts to see how those 'in need' have given to those who also are 'in need'. We cannot help but think that there is a special blessing for this type of selfless giving. We know you did not give in order to get, but we do know that G-d, according to His Torah, is pleased.

Have a marvelous Shabbat.
