Christians help repair rocket-battered Israeli town

Monday, July 09, 2007 |  by Staff Writer

A team of Christian volunteers earlier this month helped repair areas of the southern Israel town of Sderot damaged in ongoing Palestinian rocket attacks from nearby Gaza.

The Christians, who are all foreigners, spent their time renovating dilapidated bomb shelters and a rocket-damaged elderly home, reported Israel's Ynet news portal.

The Christian team members are all volunteers with the Jerusalem-based organization Bridges for Peace, which seeks to bring reconciliation between Christians and Jews by offering aid to needy Israelis.
