Project Spotlight: Command Centers

Recently, The Fellowship helped to fund a Command Center in the Otniel community in Israel. Otniel is an Orthodox Jewish community located in the southern Judean Mountains with 1,000 residents living there. Sadly, terrorists often attack the community, leaving residents vulnerable.

Thankfully, the new Command Center contains security cameras and advanced radar that will be manned 24 hours a day. We hope it will bring advanced security and safety to all citizens living there.

Recently, Rabbi Eckstein attended the dedication ceremony for this newest security project. He was joined by Israeli army Colonel Itamar Ben-Haim, and South Hebron Hills Regional Council chief Yochai Damari.

Damari thanked The Fellowship for such an important gift. “We face many security challenges here in Otniel. The Fellowship is here with this heartfelt donation and assistance which is so significant to Otniel and the Hebron Hills. On behalf of the residents of Otniel and the entire Regional Council, I want to thank The Fellowship from the bottom of my heart. This is one of the first projects we've done together, and I hope it will promote additional projects. May this Command Center be used for joy and the protection of life. Thank you very much!”
