"Before them fire devours,
    behind them a flame blazes.
Before them the land is like the garden of Eden,
    behind them, a desert waste--
    nothing escapes them." (Joel 2:3)

After visiting with Israeli families who lost their homes to the wildfires that raged across the Holy Land, President Reuven Rivlin personally thanked many of the firefighting pilots from Israel and abroad - Greece, Cyprus, Croatia, Italy, Turkey, Russi, the United States, Ukraine, Azerbaijan, France, Spain, and Romania - who helped extinguish the flaming blazes.

Learn how you can help those impacted by the wildfires. Shabbat shalom, friends.
