The city of Sderot is on the front line of Israel, only one kilometer from the Gaza Strip. For years it has born the brunt of rocket attacks originating from Gaza. Its stalwart residents bravely face each day not knowing when the Tzeva Adom (Color Red) rocket alert will sound, sending men, women and children running to shelters with seconds to spare.

 

The Sderot Hesder Yeshiva, founded in 1994 by Rabbi Dovid Fendel (originally from the US), has provided tremendous chizuk to Sderot, helping to revive the city and Israel's south, spiritually as well as economically.

 

It is one of the largest Hesder Yeshivot in all of Israel, with a student body of over 500 pupils from communities all over the country. In addition to studying, students demonstrate their commitment to the residents of Sderot through many volunteer projects.

 

NOW IS THE TIME TO SHOW SUPPORT FOR

SDEROT AND THE HESDER YESHIVA!

 

Support this truly worthwhile cause while enjoying a sumptuous buffet dinner!
