Less than 24 hours after a devastating missile left this Beer Sheva home in ruins, Federation CJA and the Jewish Agency for Israel came together to provide emergency relief funds. On Wednesday evening, representatives from both organizations personally presented the Tamano family – who were able to get to safety just in time – with a joint donation that will assist with their immediate needs following the terror attack including temporary shelter, food, and additional rehabilitation assistance to help them rebuild their lives.

Samuel Dergel, Chair of Federation CJA’s Israel & Overseas Committee, who was present, stated: “She lost all her personal possessions. In an instant. And walked away with her life and the life of her children. A true miracle. Hours later, I was in front of her... representing you. Being your personal emissary.”
