Jewish communities around the world face chaos and violence, with The Fellowship and its supporters looking to provide safety and lifesaving aid. Israel Hayom reports on a Jewish couple that was murdered in Morocco, one such area where Jews face great danger:

A Jewish couple from Casablanca, Morocco was murdered in their home and dismembered, shocking the city's Jewish community.

The victims, identified as Sam Toledano and Vicky Chetrit, were in their seventies and were well known in the Jewish community. They are survived by their two daughters, who live in Paris.

The murder took place last Sunday, but it wasn't until Wednesday that a neighbor, also a member of the local Jewish community, reported the couple missing...

International Fellowship of Christians and Jews President Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, who recently returned from a trip to Morocco, where he met with leaders of the local Jewish community, said that the murder was "sad and shocking," and that he hopes that "the authorities will find the guilty parties and punish them to the full extent of the law."
