It has been quite a frustrating time for our people, especially in the south, whose lives are more than disrupted by the barrage of rockets flying overhead and threatening their existence.They live in a constant state of fear and readiness to run for their lives, hopefully in enough time, to the nearest security room or safest position they can find at the moment. Not only do they suffer from physical threats, emotional and psychological trauma, but many of their businesses are in distress due to the situation.

Having suffered fourteen years of havoc their plight has only increased as of late due to Hamas’ recent relentless attempts to destroy us. Because of the extremely serious threat this has imposed on our people our troops have been stationed at the border of Gaza should it be necessary to launch a ground operation.

Our soldiers have been waiting on edge day after day to receive orders and are getting restless. I have seen in videos and heard stories of how the spirits of those in the South and our soldiers  have been lifted by acts of kindness and generosity by our people. These small deeds make a tremendous difference. It is a great way to contribute and is much appreciated.

Benjy Singer, in his social media network My Shteiblech, has a page dedicated to things we can do to help support our soldiers and communities in the South.

These good deeds I have witnessed make me so proud to be a member of Am Yisrael. The outpouring of love and support you continue to show is heartwarming and a testimony of what we are truly made of.
