SLJS Monthly Bulletin

If you are wondering what to do next month, stop wondering…

As October yields to November, events for the first few days of November appear on this month’s Bulletin – and soon, the SLJS website will update to all of November (and the first few days of December). This miracle of overlap occurs every month, I think/presume.

AID FOR HAITI

The day after Hurricane Matthew caused devastation in Haiti last week, Israeli NGO IsraAID and local partner Prodev were the first to provide food and water for hundreds of children and their families…An IsraAID team has been working in Haiti for more than six years, having arrived just after the January 2010 earthquake to help in rescue and recovery operations… Only two months ago, MASHAV, the Israel Foreign Ministry’s agency for international development cooperation, sent a new shipment of medical supplies to re-equip the trauma unit it established in one of Haiti’s main government hospitals three years ago.
