Dear friends and readers of Israel today,
The kindergarten "Gan Gefen" in Kfar Aza would like to thank you for your generous donations. With your help we were able to improve the facilities in our kindergarten.
For Nachman and his wife Esther, raising their family is anything but normal. Their "family" consists of their own 2 little kids who also have 10 older siblings. Nachman & Esther are the "father & mother" of a family unit at Beit HaYeled on the outskirts of Gilo, a southern neighborhood of Jerusalem.
One of the communities adjacent to the Gaza Strip that came under regular fire from Hamas, in the months leading up to and during Operation Protective Edge, was kibbutz Kfar Azza. The kibbutz is situated opposite Gaza City and the Shuja'iyya neighbourhood which housed a vast arsenal of weapons including masses of rockets and mortars which were launched at Israel during the conflagration.
