Chazak, Chazak, Let us Be Strong

Dear Friends,

We at Lev Lalev Orphanage and Children’s Home express our deepest sorrow for the murder of innocent people in Paris last week.
We fervently pray that the madness that has engulfed the world will end immediately.
As the prophet Yirmiyahu proclaimed over 3,000 years ago, Lo Yisa Goy El Goy Cherev-Lo Yimadu old Milchama- Nation Shall Not Lift up swords against nations-Neither Shall They Learn War anymore.

We stand shoulder to shoulder, united together with all people against murder, hatred, tyranny, and bigotry. We also express a special concern for our many Lev Lalev supporters who live in France. Ironically, one of them had just arrived in Israel to determine whether now is the time for him to move his family from France to Israel.
Yesterday was a day of harmony and unity. Today is a day of contemplation. Tomorrow (Tuesday) will be a day of mourning as the four kodoshim murdered in the Paris supermarket will be buried in Jerusalem’s Har Hazeism cemetary (Mt. of Olives).

We remember Yohav Hattab, 22 the son of a Tunisian Rabbi, Yohan Cohen, 20 who worked at the supermarket and was killed as he successfully saved a three year old that one of the terrorists was about to shoot. Francois Michel Saada, 64 a pension manager whose two children live in Israel and Philippe Braham, 39, a computer engineer and father of four, who always dreamed of living in Israel.
We pray that peace radiate throughout Israel and the world.

Oseh Shalom Bimromou……
Hu Yaaseh Shalom Alenu……

May Hashem from above bring peace and security to all of us.

Shimon Pepper, Chairman
Gavriel Rosenberg, Executive Director
Lev Lalev Orphanage
