Chabad Mobilizes to Aid Victims

Since the begining of Operation Pillar of Defense Chabad's Terror Victim's Project has mobilized its 300 Chabad Houses with hundreds of volunteers in the regions under fire.

Over 500 missiles have landed in Israel since the beginning of Operation Pillar of Defense on Wednesday.

Chabad in Israel via its Terror Victims Project ( has mobilized its 300 Chabad Houses with hundreds of volunteers in the regions under fire. We are in the field bringing moral spiritual and practical support to the families and the soldiers who are in the line of fire.

Volunteers are distributing food, drinks and toys to the bomb shelters and sandwiches and supplies to the soldiers awaiting orders on the front lines, and fulfilling special requests for fleece jackets, thermal underwear and socks.

Chabad Youth Organization in Israel issued a special call for outreach in view of the current war situation and the recent deaths in the Chabad community.

At an emergency meeting, a decision was made to increase in all efforts to spread the light of Yidishkeit. On Friday, the Tefillin campaign was stepped up as the traditional answer to those who seek to obliterate the Jewish nation, and more women went to encourage other women to light Shabbos candles.

At the same time, a new project called, “Libenu It’chem” [our hearts are with you] was launched to provide assistance and support to citizens in the line of fire according to whatever is needed.

The Chairman of the Chabad in Israel, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchok Ahronov, announced that the first activity which was the distribution of thousands of “Shabbos kits” in the areas that have been struck by rockets was a major success. The kits included challahs, Shabbos candles, and gifts for children. Chabad volunteers distributed the kits on Friday.

Chabad is continuing its efforts on the front lines and will continue to update you as things develop. For more information please visit
