Regavim’s field coordinator, Eitan Melet, in action

Here’s a story that didn’t start off well, but ended with a good deed and a huge smile.

Around two weeks ago, an Arab from East Jerusalem broke into the car of our field coordinator Eitan Melet. The thief smashed the window with a massive rock, and stole the drone and other expensive equipment that Eitan uses to document and monitor the illegal Palestinian takeover of Judea and Samaria, as well as other issues we deal with.

Immediately after the drone was stolen, Eitan sought advice from the followers of his personal Twitter account, asking whether he should file a report with the police or if that would be a waste of time and effort.

Only a few days passed, and one special and generous man called our field coordinator, voiced his support, and decided to contribute his part to the story. He told Eitan: “For a while already, I’ve considered donating to Regavim, and once I heard about your unfortunate incident, I decided to donate money that can be used to buy a new drone.”

This was a moving gesture; we are extremely grateful.

Everything we do at Regavim is thanks to you, our friends and supporters, in Israel and around the world.

The challenges we encounter require advanced technology, hidden cameras, and other expensive equipment we can take out into the field. If you would like to play a part, make an online, tax-deductible donation here.

Situation rooms set up by Regavim to aid the Jewish residents of Lod

Friends,

For over a week, the Jewish state has been under attack: Alongside incessant rocket fire by the Hamas terror group in Gaza, a wave of domestic Arab terror has swept across Israel. Years of poor governance and a lack of enforcement have served as a breeding ground for Arab riots, antisemitic pogroms and a wave of terror against Jews in mixed cities – from north to south.

The extent and magnitude of these events caused Regavim to suspend our other activities, and to focus our efforts on helping the residents of Lod , where Jewish residents have been victims of violent attacks, synagogues, schools, homes and vehicles have been burned, and public and private property destroyed.

Together with residents of Lod and My Israel (‘Yisrael Sheli’), Regavim quickly set up a ‘situation room’ that worked round the clock. Volunteers helped us respond to the urgent calls of residents of Lod, Ramle and other mixed cities, and to organize thousands of volunteers who called in and offered to help: medics, drivers, armed ex-officers, caregivers, & more.

Regavim purchased crucial equipment to support this important mission: cameras to document the situation, medical equipment, protective gear, computers for the situation room, and more.

Like everything we do at Regavim, none of this is possible without your support. We invite you to take part in covering the extensive costs, and to aid the ongoing Zionist struggle to insure a safe, secure Jewish future in our homeland.

We pray and hope for quieter, more peaceful days.
