Below are initiatives that help embrace meaningful connections to the people and the land of Israel. There are opportunities to commemorate the fallen,  elevate morale, and help rebuild.
 
 
 
Sky - Women's Combat Unit
This is the first company in the IDF that is a reserve company of only women fighters.  This company has only been in existence since October and is located in the border triangle of Gaza, Egypt, and Israel. They are in desperate need of a drone for their operations and are seeking donations to help. You can watch a documentary about the unit here (in Hebrew). Please consider donating  here.
 
 
 
Learning On
Learning On/לומדים הלאה is a new organization to help schooling in Israel.  They match educators/teachers with children who cannot attend school due to the war. If you or anyone you know might be interested in volunteering one on one with children impacted, the linked forms, in both Hebrew and English, provide more information. They’re looking for teachers/educators in many different subjects and grades. Learn more and register here.

Run for Their Lives.
Many have attended "Run for Their Lives" events in Manhattan. A local group will be in Riverdale every Sunday @ 9:55am. The goal is simple: to raise awareness for the release of individuals taken hostage by Hamas in Gaza. By joining together once a week, we will strengthen our community and foster togetherness and a sense of shared responsibility.  Every week we will meet as a group for a short walk (runners are welcome to start walking with us and then continue on their own run). 
We will walk with the flags of the countries of the kidnapped. Wear red and/or shirts available at Run4lives.org. Please visit Run4lives.org for more details and join our Riverdale group or visit the WhatsApp group here.
Time: Every Sunday, 9:55am (depart at 10:00am sharp)
Place: Seton Park, 232 Independence
Route: to the Riverdale Bell Tower
Let's give 18 minutes of our lives to help save theirs.
 
 
 
United 4 New Trees of Life Tu B'Shvat Program | Remembering Victims
Ma The Bayit is joining a Tu B'Shvat program to plant 12, 000 NEW Fruit Trees near the Gaza border in memory of the 1,200 victims of the October 7th massacre. Farmers and their communities near the Gaza border lost family members and friends, and fled their homes. Many are now serving in the IDF. As a result, some of the farms are on the verge of collapsing. We can help them by planting new fruit trees. These trees will be a symbol of our commitment to Am Yisrael and Eretz Yisrael and provides practical support and long term financial benefits to the farmers in the area.
