May 4th was a day of remembrance and reunion as Helping Hand Coalition hosted a Shalom House event to honor Israel’s fallen soldiers and victims of terrorism and welcome the return of the GAiN Germany team. Inviting twenty-two survivors of the Holocaust from Netanya, led by Rita Liberman, to HHC’s Caesarea Headquarters, the event made sure to respect Yom HaZikaron (Day of Remembrance) while also recognizing the survivors’ role in Israel’s independence!
After a long pandemic and closed borders, Helping Hand Coalition was thrilled to welcome our first international guests back to the Land on March 13th!
‘Tis the season of Hanukkah, the time of year where menorahs are lit, dreidels are spun, and sufganiyot are enjoyed at the expense of our waistlines.
