Dear NJ NCSY,
Over the past few weeks, there has been an increased amount of terror attacks occurring in Israel. Gush Etzion, in particular, has been increasingly targeted. The Fairlawn community has been in contact with Rabbi Alan Haber of Alon Shvut, Gush Etzion and, upon asking him what he believes they may do to help, has put forth a suggestion made by Rav haRashi (Chief Rabbi) of Alon Shvut–that the community would be most helpful through raising money for a benefit concert for the children of Alon Shvut.
As NJ NCSY (the Etz Chaim region), we feel as though we cannot stand idly by. It is for this reason that we bequest each one of you to please bring $5.00 with you to regional to donate to this worthy cause. All the extra money will go towards increased security in the town. This will link us to their community, and allow us to express that our hearts and prayers are with them, through our actions, as well as our thoughts.
NJ NCSY Regional President
