The picture that sparked a disaster
The unforeseen fall-out of a rescue operation endangers those left behind.
When almost 20 Yemeni Jews fled the town of Raydah in a covert operation, few people thought of the handful of members of the 3,000 year-old Jewish community who had been left behind in the nearby city of Sana'a.

Iran-backed rebels hold Yemeni Jew over Torah smuggled to Israel
Officials say Yahia Youssef Yaish is being interrogated by intelligence service run by Shiite Houthis, who control Sanaa
Sana'a is the largest city in Yemen with nearly 2 million inhabitants. There's al-Qadeemah, the old city district and site of ancient heritage and artifacts, and al-jadid, the contemporary development. The area is currently controlled by the Houthis.
Recently, various Jewish people and some Muslim neighbors have been arrested in Yemen for smuggling an ancient Torah out of the city to Israel.
Amaliah's goal is to help secure the release of the Jews and the Muslims involved in this incident. Amaliah is also organizing humanitarian aid for the city that has been the target of bombings and destruction. Amaliah helps people in need of justice, and to alleviate suffering, regardless of religion or nationality.

Amaliah Ongoing Projects
Jewish Torah Scrolls & Geniza
We have been rescuing Jewish people and valuable artifacts like Torahs from Syria for the past five years. We are currently continuing our work to preserve these ancient artifacts by bringing them to the United States for safe keeping. One day, it will be safe to return these testaments to the Jewish faith and the Jewish people back into a Syria free of war.
Syria Safe Zone
IThere is an immediate need for a safe zone in Southern Syria, where civil society can be restored. This is possible because there is a UN presence and Israelis just across the border at the Golan Heights who are ready and willing to help. We will use humanitarian diplomacy with our contacts in the region and elsewhere to try to return at least this part of Syria to a more civilized existence.
The Humanitarian diplomacy is persuading decision makers and opinion leaders to act, at all times, in the interests of vulnerable people, and with full respect for fundamental humanitarian principles.
At Amaliah we view a world where all women - even in the most isolated areas of the globe - hold the power to create opportunity for themselves and to help share the same with others.
IMMEDIATE AID REQUIRED!! There are 300 families in this area who are in a desperate state and on the brink of starvation. For just $30 you can feed one of these families for a month! Yes, for just $1 a day, you could save a family.
The QuneitraCrossing (Arabic: Reliable medical care is an essential part of a civil society. Medical care and facilities are in short supply in Syria and where it is practical casualties and those in need are treated at nearby Israeli hospitals. However, the Syrians need their own reliable and local system of care and if facilities like field hospitals and other medical care were available, they would provide much needed relief. With your help we can provide these facilities and medical care.
