Gaza Border Crisis: The Trauma, The Damage, The Needs - Philadelphia

Gaza Border Crisis Image

Wednesday August 29, 2018


Temple Beth Hillel-Beth El

1001 Remington Road, Wynnewood, PA 19096


Join us to meet a mother, a young pioneer, and a farmer - residents of Gaza border communities - who will share their personal stories of living under attack, with hundreds of incendiary kites, balloons, and rockets steadily raining down on them. Hear about the needs in their communities and the issues they face on the ground: their experiences running to bomb shelters and sleeping in safe rooms, their fears of a ruined economy, the ecological disaster, and their challenges dealing with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) - both their children's as well as their own. 



Please note that for security purposes, government-issued photo identification will be required for entry. All bags are subject to search and absolutely no backpacks, large bags or weapons of any kind will be allowed.
