When hearing about the plight of new immigrant families with children in Israel’s south, Danish-Jewish Friendship decided to send 100,000 DKK (approx. 14,500 USD) in relief aid with the following greeting in English, Hebrew and other languages:
We know that this situation is challenging and testing for you, but we want you to know that you are not alone and that others care deeply about you and your family’s situation. We are pleased and proud that you decided to make Israel your home and want to encourage and support you in this choice. You are a blessing to us where you are. Please accept this small gift from us, and may you find comfort and strength for the days ahead. We wish you all the best and are praying for you. G_d bless you!
Your friends in Denmark
