Even after arriving on the shores of Eretz Yisrael following the Holocaust, Jewish refugees from Europe encountered a situation similar to that described in the verse above. Having survived the Nazis, these Jews were met by a new enemy: the local Arab population, which fought violently to keep them away from their Biblical homeland. This enemy has continued to pursue and terrorize Jews in Israel until today. On Friday night, 70 year old Yosef Salomon was murdered in cold blood along with his grown children, Chaya and Elad, in their family home in the Samaria community of Halamish. The family had gathered to celebrate the birth of their newest grandson. Elad Salomon, 36, leaves behind his wife and five young orphans. Israel365 is working closely with the Halamish community council to determine the immediate needs of the financial and emotional needs of the family.
I am very blessed by the articles and updates from Israel365. I am praying for Israel and Jerusalem and pray that one day I will be able to be there and physically participate in the work to help the Jewish communities there. --Robin McDaniels
