What you can do
It's not just prayer
I saw a mailing go out to people in the US, telling them that they don’t need to feel frustrated at an inability to do anything, because they can pray.
Prayer is important and welcomed. But that’s not the only thing that people in the US can do. There’s something extremely significant that they can also do, which is Send Money.
This is something that was forwarded to me to send to friends/relatives outside of Israel who want to help:
As you know, Israel is at WAR. Not just any war but a terrorist invasion of Israel where for the first time terrorists have entered Israel from Gaza and taken hostages back to Gaza, have murdered civilians (over 700 to date) and are terrorizing the south of Israel and raining thousand of rockets on Israel.
Many of you are asking what can you do to help. The best thing is to make donations to the organizations listed below. They are all IN ISRAEL. 100% of your money donated to the organizations below will go directly to help people in Israel now.
Please do not make donations to American organizations, as the money will not get here as fast nor will 100% come to Israel.
Right now these organizations are on the front line of their specialty helping where needed. PLEASE help us.
I am also asking you to write/email your American congressmen and senators or your county’s parliament representatives or presidents /prime ministers, etc. immediately to support Israel!
