Almost overnight, wildfires broke out, scorch- ing acres, burning dozens of houses including entirely de- stroying a whole community. Over 3500 people have been evacuated as Israel braces for more. So far. Israel is considering de- claring a national emergency due to fear of the spreading of existing and igniting of new fires. Temperatures are expected to reach a swelter- ing 110 F in areas between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. The Dead Sea and Jordan Valley are expected to see even higher temperatures, as much as 118 F at the lowest place on earth. Parallel to this, on May 23 Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu instructed the Foreign Ministry to reach out to nearby countries for "im- mediate" help to put out the hundreds of fires that were ravaging the country. In re- sponse, the Foreign Ministry said Italy, Greece, Cyprus and Croatia were sending help, but the aircraft and their teams would only be able to depart for Israel on May 24, leaving Israel still vulnerable as the temperatures climb and the potential for more fires is expected to continue. As the nations of the world step up to help, so can you. Multiple campaigns have been launched to rebuild and restore that which has been damaged and lost. One such campaign strives to rebuild an entire community. Grass- roots campaigns have been undertaken within Israel to donate clothes to families whose own clothes have been lost or damaged by smoke and flames. But the tangible impact of many of these will be months away. In response, and to undertake a targeted immediate effort to help, the Genesis 123 Foundation and Run for Zion has launched a campaign to help those who are the most vulnerable: the children. Of more than 3500 evacu- ated, most are children. Among families whose lives have been disrupted tempo- rarily, and certainly for those whose families' homes have been destroyed, the trauma is great. You can join the Genesis 123 Foundation. Pray for the people impacted and the land. You can also join (JNS)--In a commence- ment speech on Thursday to Yeshiva University graduating students, U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman slammed the Obama admin- istration's treatment of Israel compared to that of the cur- rent one. "Should Israel still nego- tiate with the Palestinians even though Israel did not steal their land? Of course, it should, precisely because we are not suggesting, as our to make an immediate and tangible impact. Through a crowd funding campaign that's been established, The Genesis 123 Foundation will help replace children's toys and games immediately so they can be comforted as their families deal with trauma and loss. For just $10 you can put a smile back on the face of one of the many Israeli children who have lost everything, or just need comfort for the trauma of being evacuated. This will also serve as a respite to entire families as parents who have suffered, and are counting their bless- ings that nobody was hurt, still have to deal with their loss and recovery which may cause extra strain on their ability to care for their children. Not all parents are equipped to help their children understand how and why this happened. Toys and games will help, even through play therapy. The Genesis 123 Founda- tion is partneringwith Israeli toy manufacturers, distribu- tors and stores to purchase new toys and games at cost. This way, every $10 dona- tion will have the maximum impact. Mevo Modiin, a commu- nity of some 250 people is located in the Ben Shemen forest east of Tel Aviv. Or, it was. It is one of several communities completely evacuated Thursday, to get residents to safety and out of the way of the raging flames. Eighty percent of the homes in the town were damaged or destroyed by the fire, according to the Ynet news site. Pictures showed a mas- sive wall of flames sweeping though the community, and homes and cars completely destroyed by the fire. This was aided by record setting temperatures and strong winds. Firefighters and other communities were bracing Friday for a fresh outbreak of wildfires, with temperatures expected to soar across the country again, a day after hot and dry conditions caused a rash of fires that consumed buildings and forced thou- sands from their homes. Residents of nearby com- munity, Gimzo, evacuated themselves, and rescued sa- cred Torah scrolls from their synagogue as the flames advanced. In addition to Mevo Modiin and Gizmo, a spokesman predecessor did--that Israel return to the bargaining table as a thief returning to the scene of a crime," he said. "Precisely for that reason, there is a basis for discussion." Friedman said "the over- whelming majority of Pales- tinians are not consumed by hatred nor are unwilling to live in peace. Many are well- educated, many of them want what everyone wants--peace, security, good schools, and a better and more dignified for the Israel fire service said that Israelis had been evacuated from the central towns of Tarum, Neot Ke- dumim, Kfar Daniel, Kfar Uriya, Karmia and Harel. As a result, major roads were closed in areas abutting these communities, snarling traf- fic as Israelis headed home for the weekend. Preparations were being made to evacuate thousands of more Israelis, including ones in the central towns of Shilat, Kfar Ruth and Lapid. Hopefully the fires won't spread further. While it's not believed that the current flames were started by arson, Israel is gearing up for the risk of Palestinian Arab terrorists in Gaza stepping up their own deliberate arson cam- paign. For months, terrorists have used balloons, inflated condoms, and kites to send incendiary devices and burn hundreds of acres of farm land and threaten nearby communities. Overnight Thursday into Friday, Genesis 123 Founda- tion board members prayed and asked what could be done. Rather than setting huge and long-term goals, the decision was made to help children by replacing their toys. As one board member noted, "If I were there, I'd give them all a hug. But from far away this is like a virtual hug. How can I, or anyone who cares, not contribute $10 to make a huge difference." Funds raised in excess of what the need is to buy and replace toys will be used to buy and plant trees, restor- ing dozens of acres that have already been damaged. Please go to the Genesis 123 Foundation campaign and make your own donation today, and pray that the fires don't get worse and those impacted recover physically and emotionally.

We need to help them get there--not by per- petual handouts that create a culture of dependency and corruption."
