(JNS) The Israeli government has finalized a $1 million donation to the hurricane-ravaged Jewish community of Houston following last year’s flooding from Hurricane Harvey.
Israel’s Diaspora Affairs Minister Naftali Bennett said in a video message, “Tough times are… When us Jews show our unity; they are an opportunity to rally and help one another.”
“I instructed the Israeli government to transfer $1 million to the Jewish community in Houston because we are brothers, and we care,” he said. “We did this simply because it is the right thing to do. In the past, Jews helped the State of Israel when it was in need. Now, Israel can help the Jews.”
