A Taste of Resilience

Stand for Israel  |  May 8, 2024

unity, light, together, Israel

We are so happy to hear that survivors of October 7 have joined together to open a café in Tel Aviv to build up their community and to donate back to their ravaged Netiv Ha’asara, a small farming town in the south, reports The Jerusalem Post:

As of Tuesday, survivors of the October 7 massacre from Netiv Ha’asara have opened a new coffee shop, “Cafe Otef,” in the Sarona Market in Tel Aviv.

The cafe will be run by three young residents of Netiv Ha’asara, Noa Shabat, and brothers Yotam and Raz Kider. Additional residents of the community will take part in operating the new cafe.

Cafe Otef—Netiv Ha’asara was designed to be a gathering place for the community and provide employment opportunities for residents. While the residents are displaced, another objective of the cafe is to connect the host community to the displaced communities.
