Itamar Security Project - Beth Jacob
Beth Jacob Sponsors Itamar Security Project
We are proud to inform you how Beth Jacob Congregation is directly contributing to improve the security of our brothers and sisters in Israel.
In Itamar, 22 Israelis have been murdered in terrorist attacks including most recently in March 2011, with the horrific murder of the five members of the Fogel family.
Itamar's Mayor Moshe Goldsmith, together with Shomron security officials and the One Israel Fund, have identified different security projects which would vastly improve security in Itamar with one of the most significant being the installation of a new Thermal Day/Night Camera System.
Using the funds we collected from many of you in the aftermath of the Fogel tragedy, Beth Jacob is contributing $17,000 to be the main sponsor of this crucial project. The thermal camera system will not only cover the most threatened point in Itamar but will also supply much needed surveillance to a very wide and otherwise vulnerable area.
The thermal camera system should be operational soon. A video feed is being arranged in Itamar to show our community how we have helped.
Our participation in this project will help protect against future attacks while providing emotional and psychological relief to the residents of Itamar. All of you deserve to be proud of this wonderful declaration of achdut (unity) which shows the positive results when we as a community work and act together. Kol Hakavod!
May we be blessed with besurot tovot, with good tidings of peace and security for Am Yisrael.
Rabbi Kalman Topp Ari Miller, Chair, Charity Committee
