Hi, my name is Ma’ayan Shachak and I’m a 17 year old student from NY. The recent wave of terror via the fire attacks in Israel have really had an effect on me, as I am sure they have had on many of you as well. Our tefilot have certainly been helping the rampant fires be somewhat contained but Israel’s courageous firefighters of course have been an instrumental force as well. They’ve largely dedicated themselves to their jobs, and sacrificed spending time with their families all to make sure that our brothers and sisters are kept safe.
And so I felt that I wanted to do something to show my הכרת הטוב to the firefighters who have been working so hard as they always do, and now more than ever. However, showing appreciation can be difficult to do when you’re 6,000 miles away, which is why I need your help. I along with the help of the amazing organization Yashar Lachayl, am trying to raise at least $6,000 with the intention of purchasing gift cards to nice eateries for Israel’s hardworking firefighters. But as I said before doing this amazing project alone isn’t easy. Not only would it be beyond incredible if you were to donate to my cause, but if you would also spread this around to everyone you know, so that they can help too!
As we’ve seen time and again, we as a nation our more impactful and stronger together,
and we always will be!
עם ישראל חיי!!
