Save Amit

Naomi Ragen emailed: Even in the middle of war, with rockets falling, we cannot afford to abandon our concern for each and every life. I got a letter the other day from Rabbi Sagi, who is my son's Rav at Karmey Chayil in Beit Rimon, the wonderful yeshiva and army training program in the Galilee.
He wrote me that his niece, six year old Amit, a little blonde ray of sunshine, has been diagnosed with leukemia. The family has now been told that the only thing that can save her is a bone marrow transplant. A drive in Israel, headed by the organization Ezer Mizion, to register potential donors has begun. January 21, from 10 a.m- 8 p.m you can give a blood sample at stations all over the country to see if you would be the person lucky enough to give Amit the gift of life. In Jerusalem, stations are set up in the Malcha Mall, and the Central Bus station, just to give you an idea.

If you are in Israel, please go here to to find a station near you. This site is in Hebrew. The English website has been hacked into by Muslim terrorists, and isn't accessible.
If you are outside of the country, please go to this website to see how you can help support this special little girl and her wonderful family.
