Thank you to all who donated to the Jahalin families whose homes were demolished!

No Comments 16 January 2017

Rabbis for Human Rights would like to thank all those who went to the trouble of donating sleeping bags, blankets and warm winter clothes to the ten Jahalin Bedouin families who lost their homes in the Judean Desert about two weeks ago in a cruel, heartless act of destruction by the Israeli army’s Civil Administration.

The things were very appreciated but right now we need no more donations of this kind. (Donations of a financial kind are always welcome to support our work, of course.) Continue Reading
