Please Help Former Residents of Gaza and Northern Shomron

The Orthodox Union is collecting funds for former residents of Gaza and Northern Shomron, both for their short-term needs, and in order to help them rebuild their lives elsewhere. In order to identify these needs for us and for those who are donating through our website, a committee is being formed of representatives of the various communities. The funds will be disbursed based on their recommendations.

Many of the families have become dependent—at least temporarily—on the generosity of others, as they still do not have arrangements for employment, permanent housing, or schooling for their children. Your contributions will make a real difference in the quality of their lives.

Meanwhile, the staff of the OU's Seymour J. Abrams Israel Center in Jerusalem is actively involved in assisting them, particularly the young people, with programs to help raise their spirits and to build their confidence for the future.

Contributions may be made through our website, or by sending your check, payable to Orthodox Union Gaza/Shomron Fund, to Orthodox Union, 11 Broadway, 14th Floor, New York, NY 10004. Please write "Gaza/Shomron Fund" clearly on both the check and the envelope.
