Among the thousands of families whose lives have been shattered by the massacres of October 7th, one family in particular has stolen our hearts with their heartbreaking and heroic story.
Rabbi Grossman has taken it upon himself to use Migdal Ohr's reach and credibility to help the Wiener and Rosenfeld families and dozens more who were most affected by the massacres in southern Israel. You can learn more and contribute here >
On October 7th, Kibbutz Kfar Aza was decimated by Hamas terrorists. The lives of the Wiener and Rosenfeld families, a total of 19 people including 10 children under the age of 7, were completely overturned.
In a single day, Joseph Wiener, a 96 year old Holocaust survivor, lost two of his grandchildren. One month old baby Shaya lost her father Yahav and ten month old twins Roi and Guy lost both their parents, Hadar and Itay Berdychivsky, when they were murdered by terrorists.
Yahav, Hadar, and Itay were heroes. All three parents were murdered while sacrificing themselves to protect their families.Yahav fought off terrorists as they entered through a bedroom window as his wife, Shaylee, escaped with their newborn baby.
Shaylee and Shaya hid for 27 hours, without water or food, and eventually were rescued. Hadar and Itay hid their twin babies as they fought terrorists in their home. Both Hadar and Itay were murdered but, miraculously, the babies were rescued after 14 hours.
These families, and dozens of others, have experienced tragedies unlike anything we've seen since the Holocaust. Our warm embrace and support are so crucial to their ability to heal and continue to rebuild what they have lost.
