Oorah Shakes Off Attack-Ships 2000 Lulavim And Esrogim To Kiruv Families

Oorah lulavim_wmAs reported on TLS yesterday, A warehouse that Oorah uses was broken into two nights ago and Oorah sustained considerable damage. “While this was not our main building, it was still a facility where we stored a great deal of items,” said Yehudah Meth, spokesman for the organization. “Boruch Hashem, the 2,000 sets of lulavim and esrogim that we were preparing were undamaged. These lulavim and esrogim were shipped today to the families of children who attend our camps and benefit from our tuition programs, as well as the many families that Oorah has reached through its TorahMates program, allowing them to fully participate in theYomTovim and fulfill the mitzvah of benching lulav and esrog.”

Many of the children that Oorah works with just began attending yeshivas and
are just now learning about Sukkos for first time. In addition, many
newcomers to Torah are uncomfortable with the process of buying esrogim.
Providing them with their first lulav and esrog allows Oorah to enhance the
relationships with these families.

“Everyone at Oorah is grateful to the Ribbono Shel Olam for allowing us to
succeed in this mission. We’re also grateful to the Jewish community for the
many calls and emails we’ve received as a show of support following the
attack on our property.”
