A message from Adam Teva V’Din
Israel is at war. And in the midst of terror, tragedy, pain and loss, all Israelis are comforted by the steadfast support of the USA. The presence of the country’s leaders, here among us from Day One, reassures us that we are not alone. The staunch and quick response of President Biden in authorizing immediate aid comforts us. So too, the many messages and gestures of support from our friends and donors in the US reaching out to us almost daily. We deeply appreciate hearing from you.
I want to assure you, dear friends and supporters, that all of us at Adam Teva V’Din – like all other Israelis – are serving in the army, working in our communities, donating blood, and collecting food, clothing and whatever comforts we can for the survivors and evacuees now among us here in the Tel Aviv area. And yes, we are all holding near, in our hearts and in our arms, our children and loved ones, twenty-four hours a day.
We are also striving to keep up with our work; thanks to Zoom and remote access to our files, we are writing, researching, drafting, developing our legal cases, legislative bills, and policy papers. Perhaps not at the usual pace, but there is determination in our hearts and minds to apply ourselves to our cause. Moreover, we are looking ahead to the day when this war is over. Israel will be a different place, that’s for certain. There will be huge challenges to face in repairing and rebuilding, and we’ll be ready in our role as national environmental watchdog, and we know you will be with us then too.
