Devastating Fire near Haifa

As many of you know, the deadliest fire in Israel’s history has scorched an area in the Carmel Mountains outside of Haifa. Thank you for your expressions of concern for our friends and grantees in Israel, including one organization many of you have visited - Yemin Orde. We have attached a link to an update from Chaim Peri and are relieved to report that everyone is safe and relocated, although we are sorry to report more than 20 buildings have been destroyed.

At this time, we are continuing to assess the situation. Once things are stabilized, we will learn what needs Yemin Orde may have (relative to insurance coverage and government intervention, etc.) and we will share that with you.

If you have any specific questions or concerns you would like addressed, please contact Craig Demchak at or 443-738-1159.

Again, thank you for concern.  We will stay in touch.
