Song For Israel partners with Operation Lifeshield! We have been collecting money for the past ten months to raise enough money to build a bomb shelter for the needy in Israel. We have collected over $2,000 to date and will take the check with us to Israel on our Israel Tour in June. Will you help us reach our goal and donate to this worthy cause, saving lives in Israel?

The Jewish Bonfire Festival known as Lag B'Omer celebrates the life and teachings of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yo'hei - the author of the Zohar (containing mystical interpretations of the Torah, and the main source of the Kabbalah). Throughout Israel, bonfires small and large honour the rabbi with these huge memorial candles. In Netivot and other southern Israeli communities, those celebrations were shut down Saturday night when rockets from Hamas-controlled Gaza hit the area.
The next morning, we delivered four Lifeshield Bell shelters. Please view the video, and imagine the gratitude and relief expressed in the eyes and hearts of all who watched as the holy truck driver/crane operator and project supervisor lifted each 10 ton shelter into the air, and gently placed them nearby a school and at two kindergartens.
Blessings from Israel.
