Black Friday Means Something Else This Year in Israel
Friday, November 25, 2016 | Aviel Schneider ISRAEL TODAY
Today, all over the world people are marking Black Friday with major sales and a lot of shopping. Israelis usually like to participate in this, but this year many have more important matters to deal with.
While the rest of the world is taking advantage of Black Friday sales, Israelis are trying to keep their country from turning black.
Black clouds are covering the heavens, and this holy land is being scorched as hundreds of wildfires, many of them acts of arson, continue to rage, forcing thousands to evacuate their homes.
And the strong winds that are spreading the fires are expected to continue until the middle of next week, keeping Israel on high alert, and its exhausted firefighters working overtime.
Already large forested areas outside Haifa and Jerusalem have been destroyed.
We are calling on our faithful readers at this critical time to help us restore Israel’s woodlands.
Amidst this tragedy, join us in truly lifting Israel up and planting the land.
