To the Jewish Agency’s Fund for the Victims of Terror:
Hello and Thank you!
Most recently, I was added to the list of Israel’s victims of terror. A Jewish Agency representative arrived at my home, together with a representative from the “Sedot Negev Municipal Council,” and Hannah the social worker. They gave me a check—an emergency allocation to help me purchase the hearing aid I now need because my ears were damaged by the blast.
I was sincerely moved by this gesture, and I feel obligated to thank all those who support and provide for us.
May you be blessed!
To the Fund for the Victims of Terror:
We would like to thank you for the financial assistance that you gave us following our son Or’s death, during his military service in the Second Lebanon War in 2006.
Other bereaved families certainly can appreciate how much your support means to us. When the world we knew falls to pieces, and every attempt to collect the bits and rebuild a new life are accompanied by pain and memories, there is little energy left to deal with the outside world and its ceaseless demands. In the hours, months, and years during which we find ourselves managing, your support gives us an opportunity to breath, to regain our strengths.
You do not know us, but nevertheless, your personal donation is unparalleled. We are forever grateful.
The S. Family
