CNT Stands With Israel Fund

Rabbi Akselrad is back from Israel, but you can still contribute to CNT’s Stand With Israel Fund

by donating directly to IDF combat unit Chashal 282.

They are using the funds to get vests with ceramic (bullet resistant) inserts and ballistic helmets.

Since October 8 the unit’s role has included mobilization and transporting of special forces, navigation,

securing convoy movements in the combat zone, and evacuating casualties using Humvees.

Most of the unit’s activities in the current conflict have taken place in or adjacent to the Gaza Strip.

“October 7th changed not only the lives of Israelis but Jews in the diaspora as well,” Rabbi Akselrad said.

“Our hearts have been broken, and I think about Israel every day. It is both my privilege and my passion to support Israel during this time.

I look to the Congregation for support on this special mission so I can share the love of Congregation Ner Tamid

with the soldiers and the people of Israel who are fighting for the security of the state of Israel.”
