Pray for Israel

December 3, 2010

Worst catastrophe in the history of the State of Israel. So far 40 killed, people evacuated from their homes, residents of Haifa are encouraged to stay home.

This is not the way we wanted to celebrate Chanukka in Israel this year!

Pray for the evacuated, the families of the dead, and for the fire fighters and rescue personnel.

If you are close to the area, open your home for evacuated families or volunteer to help fight the fire (if you are physically fit for it). Call Israeli number 050-8818205 for more information of how you can help.

  1. This is very sad! I will be praying and seeing what God leads me to do.


  2. The linked site may well be a phishing site:
    http://www.eshcarmel.org/
    The phone at the top leads to a private residence and there is no known organization behind it. Donate at your own risk.


  3. Thankyou, Barak! I didn’t know that. I will erase it.


  4. Here is the reply I received when I asked who they are:

    Thanks for writing us. We’re for real and believe everyone should do what they can to assist the families affected by the Carmel fires.
    You’re welcome to speak with me personally if you’d like more information or any further assurances.
    You can call me direct at: +972-54-450-5098.

    Chag Sameach,

    Allon M.

  5. Turns out it’s a private person who started this initiative. Not sure how the donated money is distributed, but it seems he’s genuinely devoted to helping people who suffered from the fire. I exchanged a few emails with him over the past two days.

    Sorry for the confusion, I posted the warning here with good intentions.
