A few months ago an amazing family left the comfortable confines of their home in a different location, and moved to the Kibbutz. They built a house that sits right next to an Army Intelligence outpost with eyes on Gaza! You can see Gaza from their living room. During the war rockets fell on either side of their house, but miraculously the house was not damaged!
This young family returned to their Jewish roots after the birth of their first child and wanted a place for them to go for Shabbos and Holidays, and a place where their son can be Bar Mitzvah. They asked the Kibbutz members if they would agree to obtain a Sefer Torah and build a Schul (there was neither on the Kibbutz). This is a Kibbutz where people knew little about Torah, had little Jewish content in their lives and this family suddenly lit a spark a Torah spark in them. With the battering they took during the war that spark turned into a fire and they too wanted both a Torah and a Schul.
Rav Ra’anan received an inquiry from a donor who had a Sefer Torah to lend. The Rav took the donor down with him to meet the family. It was an “instant” match! Help them build and rebuild their Jewish lives, by contributing and raising $20K to build the Schul!
