Dear Temple Beth Am members,

My name is Leora and my family has belonged to the temple for many many years. I am a junior at NYU studying applied psychology and Hebrew and Judaic studies. I am now in Israel studying abroad. I performed community service this summer in Jerusalem and alongside my studies now, I have an internship at NATAL. 

NATAL is Israel's leading trauma center for people suffering from trauma due to terror and war, as an effect of the Israeli-Arab conflict. As part of my internship, I am conducting a campaign to help raise money for this organization. 

Any support would be greatly appreciated. 

Best regards, 
Leora J. Ellison 


If you have a spare moment, please read below about the organization and fundraiser: 



As you are probably aware, Israel is currently going through what some theorists believe to be the Third Intifada. Throughout the day, terrorists are stabbing innocent people in major cities; such as, Hebron, Jerusalem, Raanana, and Tel Aviv. The victims of these attacks are not just the ones suffering. There are the family and friends of these individuals, and the bystanders of the horrific attacks. Therefore, society as a whole is constantly struggling and needs support and help. 

NATAL, a nonprofit, apolitical organization, is currently working hard to help the victims of trauma by normalizing it and providing many services, such as the mobile unit and the hotline unit. 

In order for NATAL to fully impact its citizens, the organization needs your help. Please support NATAL's biggest annual fundraising event, Running in Color. Running in Color is both a 1.5k and 5k run that helps raise awareness and aid Israeli citizens suffering from PTSD due to the current and past situation of war and terror. We hope to raise money to support the many services and organizations NATAL has to offer for its clients, as mentioned above. 

Your very generous donation can help save an individual's life. To help, please click on my campaign page found here and please help spread the word to other family and friends. 

Even from abroad, you can make a huge difference.
