JEWISH LIFE

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.

 

For example, we are preserving valuable artifacts from the Jobar synagogue that has been badly damaged by  bombing. 

 

A Genizah is storage place for old books and relics and we have identified several of these where literally truckloads of ancient and treasured works remain very vulnerable to  loss and destruction. 

 

Your donation can help us preserve these artifacts.
