Operation Iron Sword

Am Yisrael is at war and we must all take part in any way we can. The Mishna in Avot teach us that the world stands on three things: Torah, Avodah, and Gemilut Chassidim. Whether it be through our speech or our actions we can make a real difference in the world and there isn’t a more appropriate time than now for us to make that difference.

Below are avenues which we each excel in and can change the world by being active in. This webpage will be constantly updated with new information and projects. Please check in periodically.
