Barrack Stands With Israel
We are heartbroken and devastated by the horrific attacks on the State of Israel. Our thoughts are with our entire Barrack kehillah and our many meaningful connections to Israel.
Our hearts and prayers especially go out to our alumni living in Israel, the many people in our community who have been directly affected by these tragic events, and those who have been called upon to serve, protect, and defend our beloved homeland. We are keeping them in our thoughts and wishing them strength and safety as we stand with all of the people of Israel during this unspeakably difficult time.
We are all seeking ways to contribute and help however we can. There are many worthy fundraisers and opportunities to support Israeli soldiers and citizens at this time of great need. Below are a few ways to help as well as resources for talking to children about terrorism and war.
We are holding the people of Israel in our thoughts and hearts as we pray for their safety and peace for all Israel.
