We would like to thank everyone who has opened their hearts and offered to open up their homes this coming Shabbat to residents of the south . We received close to 100 hosting offers, and given the short notice this is truly a great accomplishment and a tribute to all our readers.
We have worked very hard with many of the organizations taking part in this to match up households with guests, based on availability and other parameters such as family sizes, region, etc. There are many organizations working on this and we shared lists to try for the greatest chance of success.
If you were not contacted at this point than you will probably not be for this coming Shabbat (I may be wrong).
If you were contacted – lucky you – I am envious. Please write us and tell us how it was.
We will keep all your names on file for a few weeks in case the need is still there. Should you be needed in the future you will be contacted (you can always decline at that point).
Thank you again for being the wonderful people you are and for being loyal readers of the Jewish Press.
