In the wake of the ongoing conflict along the Gaza border, a heartening alliance between Jewish and Christian organizations is blossoming to provide solace and refuge for Israelis forced to flee their homes. Since October 7th, the Genesis 123 Foundation, founded by Jonathan Feldstein as a bridge between Jews and Christians in Israel, has been at the forefront of this collaborative effort.

Feldstein, acknowledging the lasting trauma inflicted upon evacuees, emphasizes the importance of collective support. “This is a trauma that is going to exist for the rest of their lives, and their children’s lives, and their grandchildren’s lives,” he shares.

To alleviate the burdens of this traumatic experience, Christian and Jewish groups are working hand in hand, covering hotel costs for evacuees and organizing projects, particularly for the children. Feldstein notes, “We’ve been putting them up in this hotel, and tonight we’re doing a beautiful BBQ for them along with a workshop where the kids are making floral arrangements to go into Shabbat.”

Feldstein explains how children have been traumatized, “If you’re in a community that’s 15 seconds notice any time rockets have been fired, and there’ve been thousands, they the kids weren’t able to leave their houses.”
