Operation Embrace
Jerusalem Event - Kest Center
Hosted by Pamela & Aba Claman
Operation Embrace would like to express its gratitude to Pamela and Aba Claman who hosted a most meaningful and beautiful evening in Jerusalem this past Saturday night at the Kest Center.  Families from the South, as well as supporters throughout Israel and the US attended the event.  The speakers included, Yaffa, from Ashkelon, whose husband was killed by a direct hit form a rocket ; Rina whose house was destroyed in Sderot from a rocket and Aharon who was severely injured from a rocket attack.  The musical program with Yoni and Nina, "Yonina" created a warm environment.  US Ambassador David Friedman spoke with loving words of support and compassion to the survivors.  The goal of the evening was to raise greater awareness as well as funds for Operation Embrace's rehabilitative programs.  Operation Embrace is grateful to the volunteers who made this evening the special experience that it was.  Below are images from the event.
Wishing everyone a Happy Chanukah and please take a moment to send in your donation by the end of 2019.
