Aside from the regular bustling summer activities at Abraham’s Tent Chabad Center in Jerusalem, the staff has been busy providing help and accommodations to stranded travelers.
Students who were scheduled to leave Israel but are stuck in the airport due to the FAA’s flight restriction for Israel and cancelled flights have turned to the center for help, explains Rabbi Yosef Eichenblatt, Director of Abraham’s Tent.
A group of Iranian-American students who were at Abraham’s Tent this past Shabbos have returned as they were not allowed to fly.
Eichenblatt has also received calls from fellow Shluchim asking for help for their students/mekurovim who are stuck in Ben Gourion airport.
The center will also provide respite in the coming days to families who are living under constant rocket attacks.
“Many people in Israel, especially in the southern area, are being bombarded daily and are forced to remain in shelters. We have decided to try to give them a breather from this difficult and stressful situation and are offering these families a free two-night stay in our hotel,” Eichenblatt says.
If you know of anyone visiting Israel and needs help have them call us at 0528701385 or direct them to our website AbesTent.com.
