Friends of Shmulik

When I was 15,  I spent a summer in Israel on a trip that paired Americans with local Israeli teens.

Shmulik and I became fast friends.

He came to visit us in Chicago many times. We lived together in Tel Aviv for a year in 2005.

Later, Shmulik studied hard for years until he was finally accepted to medical school and went on to become a doctor.

He got married, had 2 beautiful children, and has a career as a practicing physician.

Then tragedy fell on October 7th

Shmulik and his friends who are all middle aged with families, have answered the call to duty and require some help with basic needs such as shirts, pants, flashlights, and the like.  

If you can help with any amount it would go a long way towards keeping these family men safe as they work to protect their families and Israel.

We will be using the donations as they come in to purchase items from their list.

Please share this with whoever you can so that we can hit our goal of $65,000 and get all the equipment that Shmulik and his friends need.

Thank you!
