Uniting in Faith in Talmon
The kidnapping and murder of Naftali Frankel, Gil-Ad Shaar, and Eyal Yifrach, was heart wrenching for the people of Israel. And yet, there was one spark of goodness that emerged from it all – it brought the nation together. While their families strengthened and united us, their disposition brought a dialogue of faith to the forefront of Israeli society. Israelis from all walks of life came together in prayer. At a time when Israel is mourning the loss of these boys, it is most fitting that Talmon, home of the Shaar family, has decided to launch a project to bring religious and secular teenagers together to talk about the role that faith plays in their lives. Appropriately, the project will be in memory of the boys. May their memories live on through your support of this project.

Anat attributes her appointment to the position as nothing less than a sign from God. Over the past seventeen years she has been blessed to have been involved in so much charity work for so many families in need. This is due in part to the mayor of the Samaria Regional Council, Gershon Mesika, who strongly emphasizes this aspect of the council’s work…
