in honor of my upcoming bar mitzvah. Please
respond as generously as you can afford to. The
donation can be made through the shul website

~Emergency Action Appeal~
July 10, 2014
Dear YIEB Members,
Israel has never known a moment’s peace in its history- its civilians are being bombarded again with terrorist
missiles launched from Gaza. As Israel responds to current terrorist groups’ missile attacks, our hearts are with
our brothers and sisters in harm’s way. Here’s how we in East Brunswick can support Israel and its people:
• Yashar Lachayal’s Ari & Sari Horowitz Memorial Fund - Targeted, Direct Tzedakah: Donate by direct link to
the Fund at https://www.yasharlachayal.org/campaigns/the-ari-sari-horowitz-memorial-fund/ . This Fund is named
in memory of our dear friends and YIEB members, Sari & Ari Horowitz z”l, who had a special place in their hearts
for helping to ease the burden of the brave IDF soldiers. YIEB has developed a special relationship with Yashar
Lachayal, whose mission is to “bring soldiers in the IDF what they need, when they need it”. The organization
provides for basic needs of the Chayalim who are defending Israel with their own lives. Due to Yashar Lachayal’s
founders’ generosity, 100% of donations are used to purchase & distribute these greatly needed supplies, rather
than being used to defray administrative overhead costs.
The Fund was established last summer specifically to provide food, clothing, and other necessities to needy IDF
soldiers who come from impoverished family circumstances. The Fund will now focus its aid for the soldiers on
their most immediate needs due to current combat conditions. Please donate online in Ari & Sari’s memory so
brave IDF soldiers may receive the benefit of your donation without delay while they protect Israel.
• Political Action: Contact your US Congressional Representatives and Senators and urge them to stand with
Israel by making a public statement of support for Operation Protective Edge and Israel’s right to defend itself.
Go to the OU’s action page at: http://advocacy.ou.org/action-alerts/# .
• Prayer for the IDF: Recite the Tefilah for the Members of the Israel Defense Forces
http://www.ou.org/life/israel/idf-prayer-card/ (text in both Hebrew & English).
• Recite Tehillim: http://tehilimyahad.com/mr.jsp?r=RskbNi5DP8 (Worldwide continuous) or http://www.mechon-
mamre.org/p/pt/pt2601.htm (text in both Hebrew & English).
• Pair with a Combat Soldier: Let us devote ourselves to Torah learning, Tefillah, and performance of Mitzvot
and good deeds in the soldiers’ merit. Sign up, free, at http://shmiraproject.com to pair with an active-duty IDF
combat soldier. Help unify and connect all of Am Yisrael and increase each soldier’s spiritual merit and protection.
• Hasbara: Spread truth about terrorist groups’ aggression against Israel. Share facts concerning the situation in
Israel with friends & colleagues to combat the prevalent misinformation in the media. Excellent websites include:
http://www.hasbarafellowships.org ; http://unitedwithisrael.org ; http://www.camera.org .
May Hashem protect Israel, her soldiers, and citizens during this difficult, dangerous round of Arab attacks and
defensive Israeli actions. Let us stand united & provide much needed support to our Israeli family.
