It is now nearly 2 months since the fire caused by Arson that destroyed their community, their homes. Over 250 people – young and old have lost the security of having a roof over their head. They were left with literally the clothes they were wearing,
And this community was no ordinary community. This community of Artists Musicians, hippies inspired by their Rebbe Reb Shlomo Carlebach opened the hearts and homes to the world. The Moshav has hosted and inspired hundreds of thousands of Jews in inspiring Shabbats, Programs and musical and country fairs.
Over the last 2 months, the Survivors of the fire including families with children have been living in the guest houses of Chofetz Chaim and Yad Binyamin. In a strange irony, they have been fighting with the system, the Government that despite over 40 years of living on the Moshav that they are a viable Community. They have succeeded in the first part of their struggle with the Government who have pledged their support. They are now hopefully in the final stages of securing their full rights to their Land The younger generation has now stepped up as leaders and there is a greater unity. And the challenge continues as they pick up the pieces and try to return to their land, first as dwellers in Caravans, and then to build, restore the Moshav.
The tragedy has also given rise a tremendous amount of chesed and mitzvot by Am Yisrael. Alon Teeger, head of the Vaad of the Moshav, told me that the community is humbled and appreciative of the kindness, generosity and support they have support received.
There is a major resolve of the survivors to return their homes. To rebuild. To restore their community, They are hosting an Open ‘House’ on the Moshav this Friday 19th of July from 9.30 am to 12.30pm inviting the World to see the Moshav, share empathy, give support to the survivors, and help them look forward to the future.
Please come out and show your support for our Chevra from The Moshav.
