A delegation of shluchim visiting Israel’s bereaved families were forced to take cover in a bomb shelter as missiles flew over Soroka Medical Center in Be’er Sheva while they were visiting the wounded.
The shluchim were spending the day visiting the soldiers and civilians wounded in the Simchas Torah terror attack. During a visit with some the victims, a red alert siren went off forcing them to race to the bomb shelter for cover. Several who couldn’t make it into the shelter on time crouching on the ground as the siren was blazing.
The group of 28 shluchim from the United States landed in Eretz Yisroel on Monday morning on a special mission to uplift, comfort and console the soldiers, the injured, and the bereaved families.
On Monday morning, the shluchim met with the families of Kfar Aza, a town near the border that saw some of the worst atrocities of the Simchas Torah massacre. The group went from family to family offering words of comfort and condolences on the unimaginable tragedy.
Later in the day the group met with the parents and family members of the hostages who implored them that Chabad shluchim throughout the world to bring the plight of 222 hostages to the full awareness of the public.
