The Jewish Voice Israel Tour group is safe in Jerusalem, miles away from the fires in the Carmel/Haifa area in the northern region of the country.
The fires started two days after our tour group passed through the Carmel/Haifa region, and we are in no danger as we do not plan to travel back north for the remainder of our trip.
We, along with millions of Israelis, mourn the deaths of the 41 people who perished in the fire, and continue to pray that the Lord would work yet another “Chanukah Miracle” and bring rain, resources, and divine intervention to extinguish this blaze before more precious Israeli forest is burned and more lives and homes are put at risk.
